The restaurant where the brother of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes allegedly ‘showed out’ is closing its doors.
Aspen Vaughn, the owner, claims Mahomes grabbed her by the throat and tried to kiss her twice.
One restaurant employee, Stephanie Lopez, is giving hope to customers saying the restaurant will reopen once another tenant takes over. “It’s hard to own a company and go through everything that we’ve gone through,” Lopez said. “We were so close to making it, and then this whole thing happened.” In July, business at the establishment was down 75%, and Vaughn said after going to the police, she was subjected to death threats and harassment.
She also suspects vandalization after something allegedly cut the air conditioning connections, damaged the natural gas lines, and pulled the fire alarm, causing water damage. “I’m feeling attacked by people I’ve never met. Why do victims not come forward?” Vaughn asked. “It’s because this is how they get treated.”
Mahomes is due back in court on Aug. 31.
