New Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was reportedly robbed at gunpoint on Friday night. The police have arrested the individuals involved.

Sometimes you will hear of an athlete being targeted for a robbery because of the perceived wealth available due to his stature and financial position. For the alleged robbers of new Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, that was reportedly not the case, as both individuals who have been arrested for the incident say they had no idea who they were robbing.

Last Friday, Mahomes was with a party of four total friends getting out of a vehicle in Smith County, Texas when another car pulled into the driveway and someone got out of the car, demanding personal property from the four men while intimating he had a gun in his waistband. The suspect took the property and pulled off. The police later arrested two individuals — 34-year-old Michael Blake Pinkerton and 58-year-old Billy Rae Johnson — who matched the description of the suspects in question inside the vehicle described on the scene.

"“We’re aware of the situation with Patrick, and we’re just thankful Patrick and everybody is safe,” said Chiefs vice-president of communication Ted Crews."

Mahomes was recently taken by the Kansas City Chiefs in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, having traded up from No 27 overall to No. 10 in a massive trade with the Buffalo Bills.
