Cop who arrested Scottie Scheffler Breaks Silence: ‘Freaking $80 Pants

The Kentucky police officer that arrested No. 1 golfer Scottie Scheffler finally broke his silence on Thursday, calling it a “chaotic situation for everyone involved” and discussing his “freaking $80 pants.”

Scheffler, 27, was attempting to enter the Valhalla Golf Club in the early morning of May 17 in Louisville, Kentucky, to compete in Round 2 of the PGA Championship. He was detained around 6 a.m. for allegedly driving through a police cordon at the site of a fatal car accident outside of the golf club.

The accident was not related to Scheffler. A man, who worked at Valhalla, died.

Detective Bryan Gillis stands by the fact that he was “drug by the car” and “went to the ground.”

“I received visible injuries to my knees and wrist,” Gillis wrote in a statement. “I’m going to recover from it, and it will be ok.”

Social media is poking fun at Gillis mentioning his pants that “were indeed ruined.”

“Yes, the department has us buying freaking $80 pants,” Gillis wrote in a postscript. “But Scottie, it’s all good. I never would’ve guessed I’d have the most famous pair of pants in the country for a few weeks because of this
