PGA star Scottie Scheffler made headlines in late May after he was briefly arrested at Valhalla Golf Club during the Tour Championship for an interaction with a traffic officer. The incident turned out to be a misunderstanding, and the parties involved agreed to have charges against Scheffler dropped. Moreover, the officer who originally arrested Scheffler released a statement amid the altercation's conclusion.

Officer Bryan Gillis said there is no “ill will” between him and Scheffler after news of charges against the PGA star was announced.

“Mr. Scheffler and I both agree there will be no ill will over this going forward,” Gillis said, per On3. “Instead of giving a negative public reaction, he chose to speak with dignity, humility and respect. My family and I appreciate that.”

Gillis appreciated Scheffler's approach to the incident but was not fond of Scheffler's attorney, Steve Romines.

“It was unfortunate and disturbing to hear Steve Romines’ commentary today claiming that a ‘false arrest’ was made and for him to challenge my honesty and integrity,” Gillis stated. “I’d be surprised and disappointed if Mr. Scheffler actually had any part in making those statements.”

“To be clear, I was drug by the car, I went to the ground, and received visible injuries to my knees and wrist. I’m going to recover from it, and it will be okay. This is the extent of my commentary on the incident,” Gillis added.

Gillis also addressed the damage to his “$80 pants” that caught the public's attention.

“Yes, the department had us buying freaking $80 pants,” he said. “To those concerned, they were indeed ruined. 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 take care and be safe.”

Scottie Scheffler puts PGA Tour Championship incident at Valhalla behind him 

The incident between Scheffler and Officer Gillis stemmed from the tragedy of John Mills, an associate of the PGA Tour Championship who was struck by a bus and killed near the Valhalla golf course. Scheffler attempted to navigate a traffic slowdown following the incident when the altercation between him and Gilis occurred.

Nevertheless, Scheffler is putting the incident behind him. He released a statement when charges against him were dropped on Wednesday.

“Earlier today, I was informed by my attorney, Steve Romines, that all charges were formally dismissed in regard to the incident outside of Valhalla Golf Club on May 17,” Scheffler wrote. “As I stated previously, this was an unfortunate misunderstanding. I hold no ill will toward Officer Gillis. I wish to put this incident behind me and move on, and I hope he will do the same. Police officers have a difficult job and I hold them in high regard. This was a severe miscommunication in a chaotic situation.”

Scheffler ended with thoughts for John Mills and his family.

“I appreciate the support during the past two weeks and want to again encourage everyone to remember the real tragedy of May 17. My thoughts and prayers continue to be with John Mills and his family, and I hope to personally offer my condolences now that the case is over. May John rest in peace.”
