FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Police say the father of Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes was arrested on a charge of public intoxication during the Red Raiders' game at TCU over the weekend.
Officer Tamara Valle of the Fort Worth Police Department said Monday that former major league pitcher Pat Mahomes was arrested about 5:45 p.m. Saturday by an off-duty officer working the game while the elder Mahomes was in the TCU student section in the stands of Amon G. Carter Stadium.
Public intoxication is a Class C misdemeanor. Valle was not sure when Pat Mahomes was released from jail.
Pat Mahomes was taken to the Fort Worth jail before the end of the game, which Texas Tech won 27-24 in double overtime. His son scored on a 15-yard touchdown in the first overtime.
Mahomes, 46, was drafted by the Twins in 1988 and pitched for the team from 1992-1996. He pitched for five other teams in a major league career that lasted until 2003.
