The father of Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes was arrested on a public intoxication charge during the Red Raiders’ game at TCU on Saturday, according to a police report.

Pat Mahomes, 46, a former major-league pitcher, was taken into custody at Amon Carter Stadium at 5:45 p.m., toward the end of Texas Tech’s double-overtime win over the Horned Frogs.

Mahomes was causing a disturbance and “acting belligerent” in the stands when he was arrested by an off-duty Fort Worth police officer who was working at the game, said Sgt. Marc Povero, a Fort Worth police spokesman.

Mahomes was booked into the Fort Worth city jail and released later Saturday night.

Another man, Jonathan Gormly, 26, was also arrested on a public intoxication charge during the incident, according to the same police report.

Gormly had been released from jail by Sunday morning.

Mahomes played 11 seasons in the major leagues as a pitcher, including one season for the Texas Rangers in 2001. He retired after the 2003 season.

His son, Patrick, has started at quarterback for Texas Tech since 2014. On Saturday, he threw for 206 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for a touchdown in overtime.
