Days before Patrick Mahomes is set to take the field at Super Bowl LVIII, the famous quarterback’s father, Pat Sr., was arrested for DWI.
According to TMZ, Mahomes’ father was arrested while intoxicated for the third time or possibly even more. His run-in with the law took place on Saturday, Feb. 3, in Texas. Bond for the 53-year-old man is expected to be set later today, Feb. 4.
The media outlet further reported that Patrick Mahomes’ father was previously arrested in 2019 for a DWI. During that incident, he was sentenced to 40 days in jail. He served the time on weekends to fulfill the sentencing.
The father-son duo have been close over the years. Following Super Bowl LVII, Pat Mahomes was seen on the field praising his son for his big win. “I ain’t never seen nothing like you,” he told the quarterback. “You’re different! You’re different. I love you. I love you to death, baby. You know I do. Damn, you’re good.”
During the 2022 NFL season, Patrick Mahomes reportedly played most of the playoffs on an injured ankle before heading to Super Bowl LVII. He was named MVP of the game. This will be the third Super Bowl game he has played in.
Although not a professional football player, Patrick Mahomes Sr. previously played as an MLB pitcher from 1992 to 2003. Among the teams he played for were the Minnesota Twins, Boston Red Sox, New York Mets, and Chicago Cubs.
Patrick Mahomes’ Father Previously Joked About Not Wanting to Sit Next to Taylor Swift at NFL Games
Prior to his arrest, Patrick Mahomes’ father spoke about not necessarily wanting to sit next to Travis Kelce’s girlfriend, Taylor Swift, at NFL games.
During his recent appearance on WFAN Sports Radio’s Evan & Tiki show before the AFC Championships, Mahomes joked that he hoped not to sit with Swift at the game.
“No, I don’t think so,” he said about possibly sitting next to Swift. “Travis normally has his own thing and Patrick Has his own deal. “I imagine if Tayor wants her own suite, she’s got enough money to get whichever one she wants.’
Although Swift normally sits with the Kelce clan at games, Patrick Mahomes’ wife Brittany regularly watches with the pop icon.
Although with talking about game day seating, Patrick Mahomes’ father spoke about meeting Swift. He described her as being “very nice and genuine.”
He then declared that she’s actually very down to earth. “Somebody that famous, you never know how that’s gonna go,” he went on to add.
