Patrick Mahomes’ Dad Pat Mahomes Sr. Formally Charged With Felony DWI After Arrest

Patrick Mahomes father, Pat Mahomes Sr., has been formally charged for driving while intoxicated.

Pat, 53, was charged by Texas prosecutors for felony DWI on Wednesday, April 3, according to TMZ. If the retired athlete is convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.

Pat was arrested in Tyler, Texas, in February for driving while intoxicated. He allegedly had “a visible open container of an alcoholic beverage” in his vehicle and “admitted to having consumed alcoholic beverages,” according to a copy of the incident report obtained by Us Weekly. A field sobriety test was conducted on the scene.

Pat was held at the Smith County Jail on $10,000 bail and released later that same day.

Patrick addressed his father’s arrest ahead of the Super Bowl.“He’s doing good. I don’t really want to get into it too much, but he’s doing good for whatever the situation is,” he told reporters on February 5. “It’s a family matter so I will just keep it to the family. That’s all I really have to say at this point.”
