Scottie Scheffler was arrested last week right before a round in the PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club. He was arrested in Louisville, Kentucky, and it was because he reportedly dragged a police officer with his car. Scheffler was charged with second-degree assault of a police officer, third-degree criminal mischief, reckless driving and disregarding traffic signals from an officer directing traffic. They were all misdemeanors. The officer that was reportedly dragged did not have his body cam on, but the Louisville Police Department did release a video of the incident.

As you can see, this video does not show a police officer being dragged by the vehicle, but it could've been out of frame. Either way, the golf world has seen the viral clip, and people don't think that Scottie Scheffler should have been arrested. He was about to play a round at Valhalla Golf Club for the PGA Championship, and he was trying to get into the parking lot when this occurred.

Everyone has been talking about the video since it surfaced on social media. Another claim from the police officer is that his pants were ripped when he was dragged by the vehicle. Pat McAfee doesn't believe it.

The stance that McAfee has on the situation is how most golf fans are feeling right now. Scheffler is certainly a fan favorite, and after seeing that video, people think that the charges should be dropped. They haven't been dropped yet, and the whole situation is still ongoing.

Louisville mayor and Police Chief had a press conference on Thursday

Louisville mayor Craig Greenberg and Police Chief Jacquelyn Gwinn-Villaroel held a press conference on Thursday, and Gwinn-Villaroel explained that the officer that claimed to be dragged by the vehicle that Scottie Scheffler was driving did not have his body cam on, which is a policy violation.

“Detective Gillis did not have his body-worn camera operational ready,” Gwinn-Villaroel said. “Our officer has received corrective action for his policy violation. We respect the judicial process, and we will allow the courts to proceed.”

Craig Greenberg and Jacquelyn Gwinn-Villaroel did not take any questions, and Greenberg noted that they want to move forward from this.

“We are all looking to move forward,” Greenberg said. “I know there are a lot of questions right now from every member of the media here and people across the entire city. We have to respect the legal process, and that's what we are going to do. And we're going to let that play out. We want to move forward. Mr. Scheffler has made it clear that he wants to be moved forward. And I know that everyone else involved, that LMPD, wants to move forward.”

Scottie Scheffler's defense attorney Stephen Romine noted that they have the same stance as they did when this happened: Scheffler did nothing wrong.

“Our position is the same as it was last Friday,” Romine said. “Scottie Scheffler didn't do anything wrong. We're not interested in settling the case. We'll either try it, or it'll be dismissed. All the evidence that continues to come out continues to support what Scottie said all along. This was a chaotic situation, a miscommunication. Scottie did nothing wrong.”

Scheffler is back in action this weekend at the Charles Schwab Challenge in Texas.
