This was Mahomes Sr’s third DWI arrest, which is penalised by up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. He agreed to perform Standardized Field Sobriety Tests. As per reports, he displayed four clues of intoxication during the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus eye test, five clues during the Walk and Turn test, and two clues during the One Leg Stand.

“Based on the totality of the circumstances,” the arresting officer said. “I believed Patrick was impaired to a perceptible degree while operating a motor vehicle in a public place.” 

Mahomes Sr., who played 11 seasons in MLB, received his second DWI charge back in 2018, for which he served 40 days in jail. 

Mahomes Sr. and his ex-wife Randi got divorced in 2006. Their other son, Jackson Mahomes, was arrested in May last year on an aggravated sexual battery charge after allegedly assaulting the owner of a restaurant. Charges against him were dropped last month. 

Mahomes Sr. attended his son’s playoff games this year. His arrest comes eight days before his son is set to lay in Super Bowl 2024 against the 49ers in Las Vegas on February 11.
