The Truth About The Chiefs' Quarterback Patrick Mahomes
Patrick Mahomes was born to be a professional athlete. Drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2017, the young quarterback has set the league on fire with his spectacular play, leading the team to the Super Bowl in his second season as a starter. Will his fairy tale career continue? This is the untold truth of Patrick Mahomes.
During Patrick Mahomes' rookie year in 2017, he was second on the depth chart behind starting quarterback Alex Smith, so he didn't see much action on the field. Off the field was an entirely different story.
On May 12th, Mahomes and four of his friends were robbed at gunpoint in Smith County, Texas. Sgt. Darrell Coslin told ESPN,
"[Mahomes] and some of his friends had been out to a baseball game earlier that evening here in Tyler [Texas]. After the baseball game was over, he and his friends returned to one of the residences. They had pulled into the driveway and were exiting the vehicle when a suspect pulled in behind them and blocked them in. He exited his vehicle and approached them on foot, acting as if he was armed with a handgun."
According to Coslin, the robbery was a completely random act, and Mahomes and his group of friends weren't targeted on purpose. Even more encouraging, no one was injured, and after police arrived at the scene to obtain the suspect's vehicle information and description, the vehicle was found only a short distance away.
Shortly afterward, two men were arrested for the crime. One of them, Michael Pinkerton, confessed, and the stolen property was recovered.
Days later, the Chiefs said in a statement on ,
"The team is thankful Patrick and everyone involved are safe because that's what's most important."
In October 2017, Michael Pinkerton pled guilty to robbery and was sentenced to 12 years in prison.
