One of his DUI charges reportedly dates back to 1994, when he got into a car accident. A 2016 case of public intoxication followed during a match between Texas Christian University and his son’s alma mater, Texas Tech University.

Mahomes Sr previously told CNN’s Ben Morse that he intended to attend his son’s Super LVIII showdown against the San Francisco 49ers on February 11. However, his arrest preceded the biggest game of the season.

On February 5, Patrick was asked about his father during a press conference ahead of the final game. He replied, “He’s doing good. I don’t really want to get into it too much…”

Although the Smith County District Attorney’s office has yet to speak on the pending case, police claimed to have found an open beer can in the elder Mahomes’ car. Several failing sobriety tests didn’t ease the situation for him either. The police also added that he was halted as his vehicle was notably moving slower than other cars. His car’s registration had also reportedly expired.
