Case Against Pro Golfer Scottie Scheffler Closed

Case Against Pro Golfer Scottie Scheffler Closed

All charges against American professional golfer Scottie Scheffler have been dismissed according to the Jefferson county district court.

Jefferson County Attorney Mike O’Connell and Scheffler’s attorney, Steve Romines appeared in court and agreed to have the charges dropped. 

Scheffler was arrested at Valhalla Golf Club on May 17 after a separate incident in which a shuttle bus hit and killed vendor John Mills, who was crossing Shelbyville Road in Louisville.

He was charged with assaulting a police officer, criminal mischief, reckless driving and disregarding traffic officers.

In a statement to the court, O’Connell gave more details of the events leading up to Scheffler’s arrest.

According to him, the Louisville Metro Police Department was trying to coordinate traffic after the fatal accident.

A bus was turning around and all cars were stopped from entering the golf course. Scheffler was trying to enter the course at the same time and that’s where the confrontation with the officer took place.

In court, O’Connell said, “The evidence reviewed supports the conclusion that Detective Gillis was concerned for public safety at the scene when he initiated contact with Mr. Scheffler. 

“However, Mr. Scheffler’s action and the evidence surrounding their exchange during the misunderstanding do not satisfy the elements of any criminal offenses.”

The case was dismissed with prejudice, which means the case is permanently over.

LMPD detective Bryan Gillis was the officer who arrested Scheffler. He didn’t turn on his body camera when he encountered Scheffler and arrested the golfer. 

Police Chief Jacquelyn Gwinn-Villarroel said failure to engage the body camera violated LMPD policy and said Gillis was counseled by his supervisor but then added, “We understand the seriousness of the failure to capture this interaction, which is why our officer has received corrective action for this policy violation.”
