Chiefs first round pick robbed at gunpoint


A unfortunate incident involving one of the top picks in the 2017 NFL Draft went down over the weekend, as Patrick Mahomes II was reportedly robbed at gunpoint in Smith County, Texas.

Per Bleacher Report

Mahomes and three other people claimed they had been robbed after getting out of a vehicle in a driveway. The report states the group was then approached by a car carrying two men, with one said to have gestured as though he had a gun and demanded property be handed over.

The authorities arrested two suspects, Michael Blake Pinkerton, 34, and Billy Ray Johnson, 58, after the incident and were able to recover and return the property taken from the vehicle.

No one was injured in the incident, and the investigation is ongoing.

The Chiefs selected Mahomes No. 10 overall in last month's NFL Draft. The former Texas Tech signal-caller appears to be the heir apparent to 33-year-old Alex Smith.
