Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ father was arrested Saturday night.

Pat Mahomes Sr., 53, was arrested for driving while intoxicated in Texas, TMZ Sports reported. He was released on $10,000 bail the next day.

Mahomes Sr., a former professional baseball pitcher, was also arrested for a DWI in 2019 and spent 40 days in jail for the offense, which he served on weekends. He had been arrested for a DWI prior to that as well, KFAN reported.

Mahomes Sr.’s arrest comes just one week before his son’s team faces the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII, which will be played at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Sunday.

In late January, Mahomes Sr. joked that he hoped he wouldn’t have to sit with Taylor Swift and Jason Kelce while watching the Chiefs play the Baltimore Ravens on January 28 during the AFC Championship game. When asked on the Evan & Tiki WFAN Sports Radio show if he planned to sit with Swift, who is dating Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, and Kelce’s brother, Mahomes Sr. joked, “I hope not,” according to the New York Post.

“No, I don’t think so. No, Travis normally has his own thing, and Patrick has his own deal, too,” Mahomes Sr. added, according to the outlet. “But I imagine if Taylor wants her own suite, I think she’s got enough money to get the one she wants.”

Mahomes Sr. also said on the program that he was not watching the previous game, against the Buffalo Bills, in a suite with Swift or Jason Kelce.

“I was actually two booths down,” he said, but added that he did go to their suite and “hung out with them a little bit after the game, after [the Chiefs] had won.”

“Those are some fun guys,” he said. “If you think Jason’s wild, you ought to see Travis.”

Mahomes Sr. was referring to viral footage of Jason Kelce shirtless at the game while holding a beer in the cold weather.


After securing his team’s place in the Super Bowl, Mahomes told reporters, “You don’t take it for granted.”

“You never know many you are going to get to, or if you are going to get to any. It really is special, but the job’s not done. Our job now is to … try to get that ring,” he said, according to the Post.

This is Mahomes’ fourth Super Bowl appearance, and if the Chiefs win, it will be his third win, tying him with Troy Aikman and Earl Morrall for third-most Super Bowl wins by a quarterback. He still trails Tom Brady, who has seven wins, and Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw, who each have four wins.
