New details have been released in the Jackson Mahomes’ sexual battery case.
Two weeks ago, Jackson was arrested and charged with three counts of aggravated sexual battery and an additional count of misdemeanor battery after being accused of groping a restaurant owner back in February.
On Monday, the judge overseeing Jackson’s case ordered the release of a redacted copy of the police affidavit.
In the affidavit, the woman accusing Mahomes of sexual battery says he “grabbed by the throat, forcing her head back and kissed her and put his tongue in her mouth” three times without her consent and then told her not to tell anyone.”

Vaughn, 40, who is the owner of the Aspens Restaurant and Lounge in Overland Park, initially accused Jackson of “forcibly kissing me out of nowhere” in a March interview with the Kansas City Star.
She also provided surveillance video of the alleged assault to the outlet and police.
At the time, a 19-year-old waiter at the restaurant also accused Jackson of shoving him twice — and backed Vaughn’s claims.
In the redacted affidavit, Vaughn told police that Jackson told her he needed to speak with her in the office, located in the lower level of the restaurant — and that he closed the door once they were inside.
“He then grabbed her by the throat, forcing her head back and kissed her and put his tongue in her mouth,” the affidavit states — alleging that Jackson repeated the act two more times seconds apart.
Vaughn told police she did not consent and that she pushed him away all three times.
According to court documents, Jackson returned to the office where he assaulted the restaurant owner and tried to explain “what he could do for her business” before storming off while also trying to intimidate a waiter.
At one point, Jackson returned to the office trying to explain “what he could do for her business,” according to the affidavit, which noted Jackson has a large social media following.
Jackson was reportedly angry when he and his group of friends were eventually told to leave the restaurant.
Additionally in the redacted affidavit, the waiter, who chose not to be identified, spoke with police on the night of the incident and said he had gone to the office on the lower level of the restaurant to retrieve his water bottle.
The waiter entered the code and was barely through the door when Jackson allegedly pushed his chest and told him not to come in, according to the affidavit — which states the waiter then told Jackson he was an employee and needed his water bottle.
That’s when Jackson allegedly pushed the waiter a second time and told him to get out.
Jackson later attempted to apologize, but told the waiter that he should not have to tell him twice to leave a room and that if he’s in a room in the restaurant, it is off limits.
Jackson’s attorney Brandan Davies released a statement in March denying the allegations made against his client.
“Jackson has done nothing wrong,” “Our investigation has revealed substantial evidence refuting the claims of Jackson’s accuser including the statements of several witnesses.
“We have reached out to law enforcement to provide the fruit of our investigation so that they may have a complete picture of the matter.”
