Ex-MLB pitcher Mahomes arrested on DWI charge


The father of Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes was arrested Saturday in Tyler, Texas, on a DWI charge, according to online jail records.

Pat Mahomes is facing a charge of Driving While Intoxicated 3rd Or More with his bond being set at $10,000. He was released from the Smith County Jail on Sunday afternoon.

The charge is a third-degree felony and carries a sentence of up to 10 years in prison if he is convicted, according to state law.

His arrest comes just a week before his son is set to play against the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas.

He pleaded guilty to a previous DWI arrest in Texas in 2018 and was sentenced to 40 days in jail, which he served on weekends.

A former major league pitcher, he played for six teams over 11 seasons from 1992 to 2003.
