Breaking:Scottie Scheffler unveiling a brutal message back to back towards tiger woods after he was … Full details ⬇️

Scheffler had faced charges of second-degree assault of a police officer, third-degree criminal mischief, reckless driving, and disregarding traffic signals from an officer directing traffic on May 17 but an agreement between the player and Louisville Metro Police Department stipulates that both sides agreed not to pursue any legal actions related to his arrest.

The 27-year-old was arrested by Louisville Metro Police on the Friday of the PGA Championship, after trying to drive into Valhalla Golf Club in heavy traffic caused by an earlier – unrelated – accident, events he described as “a big misunderstanding” following “a very chaotic situation

According to the arrest citation, Scheffler failed to stop on arresting officer Bryan Gillis’ command, and the detective grabbed the golfer’s tournament car as Scheffler tried to drive away. Gillis fell to the ground.

Scheffler, who called the events a “big misunderstanding,” was released from jail in time to play his second round. A four-time PGA Tour winner this season, Scheffler was the overwhelming pre-tournament favourite and went on to finish tied-eighth, eight strokes behind winner Xander Schauffele

Gillis later was disciplined by his department because his body-worn camera was turned off.

However, a new video surfaced on Wednesday of Scheffler’s conversation with an officer while sitting in the back of a police car. In it, Scheffler said he didn’t know that the man wearing a yellow jacket and trying to stop him was a policeman. Scheffler also said the officer “hit” him with a flashlight.

“If I knew he was a police officer, I would have been much less afraid,” Scheffler said. “But panic kind of set in. As you can see, I’m still shaking because I was afraid. I didn’t know who he was. He didn’t say, ‘Police, get out of the car.’ He just hit me with his flashlight and yelled, ‘Get out of the car.'”

Scheffler’s arraignment had been set for June 3 and his Louisville-based attorney, Steven Romines, previously said he would plead not guilty and would not accept a plea deal.

Scheffler went into the PGA Championship as pre-tournament favourite after following his victory at The Masters by winning the RBC Heritage, his fourth PGA Tour win in five starts, with the American returning to action after skipping the Wells Fargo Championship for the birth of his first child.

He followed a four-under 67 on the opening day with a second-round 66 on Friday May 17, despite being arrested earlier in the day and only arriving back at the course less than an hour before his delayed tee time.

Play was delayed for 80 minutes on Friday after a fatal accident saw a pedestrian – later named as on-site vendor John Mills – struck by a shuttle bus shortly after 5am local time, while Scheffler was detained around an hour later as he attempted to drive around the scene.

Scheffler was taken away to Louisville Metropolitan Department of Corrections and a mugshot of him quickly appeared on social media in an orange jumpsuit, with the American booked in at 7.28am before being released at 8.40am.

He was released on his own recognizance and driven to the course for his second round, originally due to begin at 8.48am but pushed back until 10.08am because of delays, with Scheffler arriving at 9.12am and having a limited practice session ahead of his tee time.

Speaking after his second round at the PGA Championship, Scottie Scheffler detailed his arrest and detainment before being released in time to make his tee time at Valhalla Golf Club

Scheffler’s troubles switched from off course to on it on Saturday, where he was without regular caddie Ted Scott due to him attending his daughter’s graduation, as he dropped four shots in a three-hole stretch during a two-over 73 – his first over-par round of the year.

The 10-time PGA Tour winner bounced back on Sunday to card a six-under 65 and end the week tied-eighth, eight strokes behind Schauffele, with Scheffler proud of his finish after a “hectic” few days.
