Pro Golfer Scottie Scheffler Reacts to Charges Being Dropped in Officer Assault Case


Pro golfer Scottie Scheffler has spoken out following the announcement that prosecutors have dropped the charges against him for allegedly assaulting a police officer. Scheffler emphasized that he holds “no ill will” towards the officers involved in his May 17 arrest.

Scheffler took to social media to reassure fans that the incident was an “unfortunate misunderstanding.”

“Police officers have a difficult job, and I hold them in high regard. This was a severe miscommunication in a chaotic situation,” the golfer stated.

Scheffler also expressed his sorrow over the loss of PGA worker John Mills, who passed away on the same day Scheffler was arrested, after being struck and killed by a shuttle bus outside Valhalla Golf Club.

The Louisville Police initially announced plans to charge Scheffler with three counts, including felony second-degree assault, for allegedly dragging an officer with his car. However, the charges were ultimately dropped after the prosecutor’s office decided not to pursue the case.
