Chiefs 10th Overall Pick Patrick Mahomes II Was Robbed At Gunpoint In Smith County
I hesitate to report news of a robbery at gunpoint, as the last time I did so it turned out that an insane Olympic swimmer was just telling stories so his mom wouldn't be mad at him. But that couldn't possibly happen twice, so here goes.
According to CBS 19 (KYTX) in Texas, Patrick Mahomes II and three others were reportedly robbed at gunpoint last Friday. Mahomes was recently drafted 10th overall in the 2017 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs after spending three years at Texas Tech, setting him up to eventually succeed Alex Smith as their franchise quarterback.
Per KYTX, a press released from the Smith County Sheriff's Office stated that deputies were sent to a residence on Mansion Creek Circle around 9:15 p.m. in reference to an aggravated robbery.
The victims reported they were approached by two suspects while exiting a vehicle at the residence. One of the suspects "was seen gesturing as if he had a handgun in his waistband" and they demanded property from Mahomes and the others before fleeing in their vehicle. No one was injured.
The two suspects were apprehended fairly quickly due to a description of the vehicle and the suspects, and 34-year-old Michael Blake Pinkerton and 58-year-old Billy Ray Johnson were arrested and taken to the Smith County Jail.
Those who are familiar with justice reform and wrongful convictions will recognize Smith County from multiple main stream news stories, including that of Kerry Max Cook, who spent 20 years on death row for the rape and murder of Linda Jo Edwards. He maintained his innocence the entire time and has since been released from prison on an Alford plea.
