About a month after acting like a spoiled and privileged rich kid during a run-in with police in the Power & Light District, Mayor Sly James' son Kyle is now accused of punching a woman in the face during a melee at The Point bar.

Fox 4 reported last night that the mayor's 23-year-old son is accused of hitting a 22-year-old woman from Lee's Summit during a fight at the bar. In an interview with the TV station, the woman claimed that a friend of the mayor's son told her that Kyle James punched her. That friend was an unnamed member of the Kansas City Chiefs, according to the woman.

The woman also picked James out of a photo lineup for police.

KMBC Channel 9 reported that Kyle James turned himself in to police last night. He was bailed out a short time later.

No word yet from the mayor on his son's latest alleged issues. UPDATE: Here's the statement from Mayor Sly James' spokesman, Danny Rotert: "To ensure that both Kyle and his accuser get a fair day in municipal court, the Mayor will not have any comments on the matter now pending. Thank you for your understanding in what is a difficult time for all involved."

In the Power & Light incident, James was accused of refusing to pay for food that he ordered from Fran's Restaurant. He also threatened the job of a cop who handcuffed him and he repeatedly asked the officer if he "knew who he was." There's a whole lot more to the incident, including Kyle James allegedly picking a fight with three men outside the restaurant, telling them that he'd "fuck them like that sweet sixth-grade pussy on the playground."

Kyle James made a public apology after the Power & Light incident.

“This is not the first time I have apologized for what I have done and quite possibly it won’t be the last," Kyle James said in a statement (via the Star).

We can't say he didn't warn us.
