Scottie Scheffler arrest: Louisville police reveal why golf star arrested at PGA Championship | LIVE


Following pro-golfer Scottie Scheffler’s arrest and charging, including second-degree assault of a police officer, Louisville police will provide an update on the investigation on Thursday.

Scheffler, a Masters champion and world No. 1 golfer, was arrested by police on Friday, while on the way to the PGA Championship, after he failed to follow police orders during an investigation into a pedestrian fatality.

The incident took place outside the entrance to Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Ky., around 6 a.m. ET, shortly after a man was struck and killed by a shuttle bus. Police had stopped traffic, resulting in a sea of red and blue flashing lights.

ESPN reporter Jeff Darlington, who witnessed the incident, said Scheffler was attempting to drive around the scene of the crash using a median when an officer ordered him to stop. Scheffler, Darlington said, continued to drive slowly toward Valhalla’s entrance.
