Pat Mahomes Sr. indicted on drunk-driving charge, facing up to 10 years in prison

Pat Mahomes Sr., the father of Super Bowl-winning quarterback Patrick Mahomes, is facing up to 10 years in prison after being formally indicted on Wednesday for driving while intoxicated, a felony charge he received back on Feb. 3.

The 53-year-old was allegedly caught with “a visible open container of an alcoholic beverage” in his car and “admitted to having consumed alcoholic beverages,” according to an incident report obtained by Us Weekly.

Along with the possible 10-year prison sentence, Mahomes Sr. also faces a fine of $10,000, the same amount he already paid to be bailed out of jail following the incident.

He was originally taken into custody and booked in the Smith County Jail in Texas, just days before his son played in the Super Bowl on Feb. 11. and would bring home the Kansas City Chiefs’ third NFL title in the past five years.

When asked about his father’s arrest in a press conference before the game, Mahomes said his father was “doing good.”

“I don’t really want to get into it too much, but he’s doing good for whatever the situation is,” the former league MVP added. “It’s a family matter. I’ll just keep it to the family, and that’s all I really have to say at this point.”

Mahomes Sr. has faced multiple DWI charges in the past, in addition to a charge of public intoxication which came during a 2016 football game between TCU and Texas Tech, back when his son was playing for the Red Raiders, according to Bleacher Report.

Mahomes Sr. played 11 total seasons in the MLB from 1992 to 2003, pitching for the New York Mets, Boston Red Sox, Texas Rangers, Chicago Cubs and the Pittsburg Pirates.

He has three children: Patrick, 28, and Jackson Mahomes, 23, whom he shares with ex-wife Randi Martin, as well as daughter Zoe Mahomes, from a relationship with Anika Cooper following his divorce from Martin.

Jackson has faced his own legal troubles after being accused of sexual battery by a restaurant owner last May. Prosecutors dropped those charges in January when the alleged victim became reluctant to cooperate.

Jackson instead pleaded guilty to misdemeanor battery last month and was sentenced to six months’ probation.
