Jackson Mahomes, younger brother of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, appeared in court on Tuesday regarding his arrest for aggravated sexual assault.
Tuesday marked one of the first times Mahomes, a social media star, has been spotted in public since his arrest earlier this month.
The 23-year-old – known for his extravagant behavior in NFL stadiums – has previously been charged with forcibly kissing a 40-year-old woman who owns a bar just outside Kansas City.
He arrived at Johnson County Court looking dapper in a gray suit, dark tie, black loafers and sunglasses.
Jackson, who has amassed a million followers on TikTok, briefly appeared before a judge to ask for his link to be changed.

He was seeking access to four people he had previously been banned from speaking with as part of the terms of his release from prison on May 3.
On Tuesday, the judge granted him permission to contact three of the four.
He quickly left court after the proceedings without speaking to reports at the scene.
He is due back in court at the end of August for another hearing.

According to a Kansas City Star report, the alleged incident took place on February 25 at the Aspens Restaurant and Lounge in Overland Park, KS.

“Then he kept doing it two more times, the last time I was pushing him away and I can see on the cameras someone was outside the door to the office and I was yelling at them to come help because he’s big and massive.”
“It’s disgusting,” Vaughn reportedly told Mahomes at the time. “Like you’re a kid and he’s trying to say ‘we should be a power couple,’ and I’m like ‘clearly, you’re crazy right now. “
A lawyer for Mahomes, Brandan Davies denied the allegations at the time.
“Jackson did nothing wrong,” the attorney told the outlet. “Our investigation uncovered substantial evidence refuting the Jackson accuser’s claims, including statements from multiple witnesses.

“We have contacted law enforcement to provide them with the outcome of our investigation so they can get a full picture of the case.”
Young Mahomes has been in the spotlight for his viral behavior on TikTok, but has also caused controversy with his antics on the sidelines of his brother’s games.
In 2021, he poured water on a Baltimore Ravens fan after a loss to the Chiefs in a filmed incident. He then tweeted: “They were thirsty.”
A month later, just after the Chiefs played the Washington Commanders, Jackson shared a video of himself dancing to a tribute to the late Washington player Sean Taylor, who died in 2007.
He was called out on social media and he apologized for the incident on Twitter, writing, “Want to sincerely apologize for accidentally being on Sean Taylor #21 at FedEx Field.” We were asked to stand in this area and I meant absolutely no disrespect to him or his family.
Additionally, he was accused of repeatedly shoving a 19-year-old boy.
The teenage waiter, who chose to remain anonymous, said Mahomes would not allow access to the staff office.
“I was going to our office downstairs where the employees are in the employee area, and he’s downstairs for whatever reason,” the waiter said.
The 23-year-old remained silent as he left prison after posting $100,000 bail on May 3.
Aspen Vaughn allegedly pushed him out of her as he joined her three times during the incident
“I try to go to the office, and he pushes me out. … And he said, ‘No, get out, get out.’
Mahomes quietly made a comeback on social media last month nearly two months after being charged with assault and sexual assault.
Mahomes, who has a large following on TikTok and Instagram, had been exceptionally quiet on social media platforms in the weeks following the allegations, but resumed posting the week before his arrest.
He posted on his Instagram Story appearing to mingle with NFL fans who came to Kansas City for the NFL Draft.
He also made his first TikTok in about two months as he synced the lyrics, “I’ve lost friends and found peace.”
He also posted a photo of himself beaming alongside his brother Patrick on his profile on Saturday.
