The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback’s dad, 53, was arrested by the Tyler Police Department on at least his third DWI on Saturday night in Texas.

Mahomes Sr. was held at the Smith County Jail on a $10,000 bond. The 6’4 former professional baseball pitcher slept in jail overnight and was bonded out on Sunday.

Six days before he takes on the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl, Mahomes Jr stayed tight-lipped on his dad’s arrest and refused to go into any details.

‘I can’t go into it too much, but I mean he’s doing good for whatever the situation is,’ the football star said.

‘It’s a family matter, so I’ll just keep it to the family. That’s all I’m going to say at this point.’

Bond documents have confirmed Mahomes Sr will be able to travel to Las Vegas to watch the Chiefs this weekend – but he’ll have to remain sober, and won’t be able to have any liquor while partying in the VIP box.

He is usually flanked by his glamorous daughter-in-law, Brittany Mahomes, and Travis Kelce’s popstar girlfriend Taylor Swift at the Chiefs’ nail-biting games.

Mahomes Sr. was pulled over at 8.30pm on Saturday night during a traffic stop.

An officer saw his white Genesis traveling too slowly as he went west in the 1100 block of W. Gentry. Cops ran his registration – which had expired in September 2022.

They pulled him over, at which point the officer saw that Mahomes Sr. had an open 16oz Coors can in his center console.

He said that he had been drinking a few beers while watching the game at a local bar. Mahomes Sr. performed field sobriety tests and failed.

He was then arrested and booked into jail for the DWI.

The father of the millionaire Chiefs quarterback had his jail fee paid for by Ace Bail Bonds – a third party bond service that people can use in counties across Texas.

According to bond documents seen by, Mahomes Sr. is allowed to travel freely despite his felony arrest – but he is banned from drinking alcohol or taking illegal drugs as part of his agreement.

He must also show up to Smith County’s probation office on Monday morning to meet with an officer and receive further instructions.

Mahomes Sr. will also have to fix an ignition interlock device on his car – so that he cannot start the vehicle without being breathalyzed first.

The quarterback’s father will also have to submit to random alcohol and drug testing during his bond period. He was also reminded that he must obey the law.
