Charges against PGA Masters Champion, Scottie Scheffler, have been dropped by LMPD.

Officers detained Scheffler outside Valhalla as he tried to make it past a police barricade to make it for his early tee time in PGA Championship play.

Scheffler was booked at the Louisville Metro Department of Corrections after being arrested for the following charges:

  • Second-degree assault of a police officer (Felony)
  • Third-degree criminal mischief (Misdemeanor)
  • Reckless driving (Violation)
  • Disregarding traffic signals from an officer directing traffic (Misdemeanor)

New police video from the morning of May 17th shows a little more to the story of what led the top golfer in the world to be hauled to jail in handcuffs before PGA tournament play.

LMPD Officer Bryan Gillis is being disciplined for not having his bodycam on, and has been disciplined six times (including two suspensions) in the past for policy violations. There isn’t footage that would back up Gillis’ account of their exchange.

Scheffler would have faced 5-10 years in prison on the 2nd degree felony charge of assaulting a police officer if convicted.

A new video was also posted of a conversation between Scheffler and LMPD in the police car after the arrest.
