The Scottie Scheffler arrest video must be seen to be believed

Golf fans were wide-eyed and stunned by the Scottie Scheffler arrest video at Valhalla which emerged on social media on Friday…

 

A Scottie Scheffler arrest video is something no golf fans expected to see on the morning of the PGA Championship’s second round.

The World No.1 was arrested near Valhalla Golf Club after what he later described in a statement as “a big misunderstanding of what he thought I was being asked to do.”

There was a large police presence by the entrance of the major venue in Louisville, Kentucky as earlier in the morning, a man was killed in an accident involving a shuttle bus.

Why did Scottie Scheffler get arrested?

A police report stated that Scheffler refused to comply with the instructions given to him and when accelerating forward, the car dragged a Detective Gillis to the ground.

These are the events that led to the reigning Masters champion being handcuffed and detailed and eventually charged with second-degree assault of a police officer, third-degree criminal mischief, reckless driving and disregarding traffic signals from an officer directing traffic.

The Louisville Metropolitan Department of Police Corrections website said that Scheffler was booked in at 7.28 am and released from police detention at 8.40 am.

The 27-year-old Texan released a statement on social media shortly before he teed off with Brian Harman and Wyndham Clark.

“This morning, I was proceeding as directed by police officers,” he wrote. “It was a very chaotic situation, understandably so considering the tragic accident that had occurred earlier, and there was a big misunderstanding of what I thought I was being asked to do.

“I never intended to disregard any of the instructions. I’m hopeful to put this to the side and focus on golf today. Of course, all of us involved in the tournament express our deepest sympathies to the family of the man who passed away in the earlier accident this morning. It truly puts everything in perspective

Having carded four-under-par in the first round of the tournament on Thursday, Scheffler made it to Valhalla before his 3.08 pm tee time which had already been delayed due to the fatal collision.
