What up, Mahomes?

Patrick Mahomes, the 6-foot-3 former Texas Tech and current Kansas City quarterback, was robbed on Friday outside a Texas home by a 5-foot-4 man.

As TMZ.com put it, Mahomes was robbed by “a tiny man.”

According to the Associated Press, Mahomes and the three other people were stepping from a vehicle on a home’s driveway outside Tyler, Texas, when a suspect approached. He gestured he had a handgun in his waistband and took unspecified items from the victims before speeding away, the Smith County (Texas) Sheriff’s Office said Monday.

Arrests made

Deputies later arrested two suspects in the reported getaway car and recovered items taken during the holdup. A 5-foot-4 Michael Pinkerton, 34, was charged with aggravated robbery. Also, Billy Ray Johnson, 58, was accused of two counts of possession of a controlled substance and with tampering with evidence involving one of the items taken during the holdup, sheriff’s Sgt. Darrell Coslin said.

Coslin said Pinkerton “has a long criminal history and is known to us.” He randomly robbed the quarterback and three others as they returned to a residence after attending a college baseball game.
