Police Reveal Charges for Scottie Scheffler

0:00

Earlier this week, it was reported that the charges against the world’s top golfer, Scottie Scheffler, would be dropped. Those reports were not accurate.

In a press conference on Thursday, the Louisville Police Department clarified that, contrary to the earlier report, they have no plans to drop the charges against Scheffler.

It was further revealed during the press conference that the arresting officer, Brian Gillis, has received “corrective action” for failing to have his body cam on during the incident.

“Our position is the same as it was last Friday,” Romines said. “Scottie Scheffler didn’t do anything wrong. We’re not interested in settling the case. We will either try it or it will be dismissed. I’ve seen everything there is to see. Everything that is out there supports exactly what Scottie has said from the start.”

Scheffler was charged with felony second-degree assault of a police officer, as well as misdemeanor charges of criminal mischief in the third-degree, reckless driving, and disregarding signals from officers directing traffic.

The arraignment has been scheduled for June 3. Given that he is facing a felony charge, his presence in the court that day is required.
