Revealing Video Sheds Light on Scottie Scheffler’s Controversial Detainment

Unjustly, the world’s leading golfer, Scottie Scheffler, was arrested in Louisville last week. The incident occurred while he was awaiting his tee time in a car clearly identified with tournament credentials, right in the golf course parking lot. This situation has sparked indignation and is considered by many to be a shocking event.

Scheffler was merely attempting to maneuver through traffic and bypass an incident in his PGA-marked vehicle. However, Louisville Detective Bryan Gillis made an unfounded allegation that he was dragged by Scheffler’s vehicle for approximately 10 yards. Scheffler refuted this claim, stating he wasn’t even aware of the officer’s presence on his car.

In an audacious move, Gillis noted in a police report that Scheffler “demanded to be let in and proceeded forward… I was dragged/knocked down by the driver.” However, Gillis neglected to activate his police bodycam during this interaction with Scheffler – a blatant breach of LMPD policy on uniforms and equipment.

Police Chief Jacquelyn Gwinn-Villaroel acknowledged Gillis’ failure to adhere to procedure. However, the truth surfaced when a street pole camera video was released showing that Detective Gillis was not dragged at all. Instead, it depicted Gillis chasing Scheffler’s vehicle for a few seconds before Scheffler halted.

If Gillis was indeed dragged, it would have occurred before the street pole camera captured him. But the question remains – why wasn’t his bodycam activated?

On Thursday, LMPD also released a dashcam video:

This entire incident is permeated with a sense of injustice. Scheffler was stopped, arrested, transported to jail, forced into an orange jumpsuit, and booked – all based on a questionable claim.

Scheffler now faces four felony assault charges on a police officer and is scheduled for arraignment on June 3rd. This incident is a complete travesty!
