OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Kansas prosecutors are seeking to dismiss three felony charges against Jackson Mahomes, the brother of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, in connection with an alleged assault that took place at a suburban Kansas City establishment earlier this year. The incident occurred on February 25, 2023, at Aspens Restaurant and Lounge in Overland Park.
According to court documents filed on Tuesday, Johnson County Assistant District Attorney Megan Ahsens requested the dismissal of the three counts of aggravated sexual battery that Mahomes had been facing. Mahomes is also facing a misdemeanor battery charge related to the incident. The court filing revealed that prosecutors received an affidavit from Vaughn’s attorneys stating that she had refused to testify in the case.
Mahomes’ attorney, Brandan Davies, released a statement asserting his client’s innocence. Davies said, “Mahomes has done nothing wrong. We were confident that the truth would ultimately be revealed.”
The alleged assault took place while Mahomes was in a room at the restaurant with Aspen Vaughn, the restaurant’s owner. It was reported that Mahomes pushed a waiter who attempted to enter the room. After the waiter left, Mahomes allegedly grabbed Vaughn and forcefully kissed her three times without her consent, according to prosecutors.
Vaughn informed the police that Mahomes was a friend of her stepdaughter and had previously been asked to leave the restaurant. As a result of the incident and associated publicity, the restaurant closed its doors in August and even experienced vandalism.
In summary, Kansas prosecutors are requesting the dismissal of three felony charges against Jackson Mahomes, who is accused of assaulting a woman at a suburban Kansas City establishment. Mahomes denies any wrongdoing, and the alleged incident resulted in the closure of the restaurant where it occurred.
