Patrick Mahomes Father Has Been Arrested in Texas

Patrick Mahomes’ dad has been arrested for driving while intoxicated – just a week before his son’s fourth Super Bowl appearance. The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback’s father, 53, was arrested by the Tyler Police Department on at least his third DWI on Saturday night in Texas.



He is being held on a $10,000 bond. Mahomes Sr., who is a 6’4 former professional baseball pitcher, is currently in custody at the Smith County Jail. The Chiefs – and his NFL legend son – are currently gearing up for their Super Bowl showdown against the San Francisco 49ers on February 11 in Las Vegas.



Mahomes Sr. has been arrested a total of six times for driving while intoxicated, according to public booking records – twice in 2012, twice in 2018, once in 2019, and now once in 2024. On his DWI charge in 2018, he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 40 days in county jail on weekends during 2019 and 2020.



After two DWI convictions in Texas, the third DWI offense is classed as a third degree felony. The maximum fine is $10,000, and the maximum prison sentence is 10 years in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice penitentiary. It is unclear as of Sunday afternoon if Mahomes Sr. has posted bond.



Mahomes Sr was a sixth round pick in the 1988 MLB Draft, and he made his big league debut with the Minnesota Twins in 1991. He spent fours years in Minneapolis before getting traded to the Boston Red Sox, where he spent the next season-and-a-half.



After getting released by the Red Sox, Mahomes played the 1999 and 2000 seasons with the New York Mets. Mahomes made additional appearances with the Texas Rangers, Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates, then spent the rest of his playing days in the minor leagues before retiring in 2009.
