Jackson Mahomes, the brother of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, was briefly jailed Wednesday on aggravated sexual assault charges, following an alleged altercation at a restaurant in Kansas in late February.

The 22-year-old was charged Tuesday in Johnson County, Kansas, with three counts of aggravated sexual assault and one count of battery. He was released Wednesday after posting $100,000 bail.

During a brief virtual court appearance, the judge scheduled the next online hearing for May 11.

Under the conditions of his bail, Jackson Mahomes is not allowed to publicly discuss his case.

The probable cause affidavit in the case was not immediately released. But The Kansas City Star reported that police previously confirmed they were investigating a February 25 incident involving Jackson Mahomes at a restaurant in suburban Kansas City, in Overland Park, Kansas.

Jackson Mahomes' attorney, Brandan Joseph Davies, said in a statement that the court barred him and his client from commenting. But he released a statement in March, when the allegations came to light, saying there was "substantial evidence refuting the claims of Jackson's accuser," The Star reported.

Aspen Vaughn, the owner of Aspens Restaurant and Lounge, told the newspaper in early March that Jackson Mahomes was a friend of her stepdaughter's. She added that the young man had frequented the restaurant, where his stepdaughter works.

According to Vaughn, Jackson Mahomes had been there earlier the day of their meeting, which had been nice.

Vaughn said that same night, the young man returned to Aspens. He grabbed her neck with enough force to leave a slight bruise while they were talking in her office about an incident in which he allegedly pushed a service staff member.

The woman provided The Star with a photo of a bruise on her neck and a video that she said showed Jackson Mahomes grabbing her neck and kissing her at least twice.

“He forcefully kissed me out of the blue,” he said, calling their approaches unpleasant and shocking and noting that he thought he was intoxicated.

Aspen Vaughn did not immediately respond to a Facebook message and the restaurant did not return a phone message seeking comment on the charges.

The Chiefs declined to comment, arguing that it was a personal matter involving a player's family member, but not a member of the organization. Patrick Mahomes does not have a spokesperson and has not commented on the matter on Twitter.
