Patrick Mahomes dad arrested with his third, yes 3rd, DUI. Between this and his annoying wife and brother, I don't understand how anyone could like Patrick and this family. https://t.co/l6vDL9xzNG pic.twitter.com/lYZrOXBWNx

Will Mahomes Sr. Attend The Super Bowl?
The arrest of Mahomes Sr. comes as a shock to everyone in the NFL world as his son will be playing in the Super Bowl next Sunday, and now, he has a chance of missing his son playing in the big game. The father made headlines earlier this year for joking around saying that he would not sit next to pop star Taylor Swift at the AFC Championship game, and now it is unclear if he will be able to attend the Super Bowl in Las Vegas or not. Do you think the father will be able to attend the big game, or will he have to serve his full sentence, which could be several years?
