There’s been a shocking update in the Scottie Scheffler saga. The world’s top golfer was arrested for allegedly “dragging” a police officer during a confusing and chaotic moment en route to the golf course.

As it turns out, ESPN reporters were also on the scene and revealed the true story. According to them, the Keystone cop managing the traffic went on an unhinged power trip and turned into a banshee. He was not “dragged,” the ESPN reporters claim. Once this news broke, charges were quickly dropped against Mr. Scheffler. We thought that was the end of it—aside from the massive black eye on the city of Louisville and their clownish police department. But that’s not the end—not even close.

We covered the original story below:

Now, we’re hearing that the charges actually haven’t been dropped, and Mr. Scheffer is still in the legal hot seat and could be facing a possible trial.

Here’s what Scheffler is facing:

  • Second-degree assault of a police officer, a felony
  • Third-degree criminal mischief
  • Reckless driving
  • Disregarding traffic signals from an officer directing traffic

Scheffler is facing down a felony and 10 years in prison over this circus. This is the statement Mr. Scheffler released after the incident:

‘This morning, I was proceeding as directed by police officers.

‘It was a very chaotic situation, understandably so considering the tragic accident that had occurred earlier, and there was a big misunderstanding of what I thought I was being asked to do. I never intended to disregard any of the instructions. I’m hopeful to put this to the side and focus on golf today.

‘Of course, all of us involved in the tournament express our deepest sympathies to the family of the man who passed away in the earlier accident this morning. It truly puts everything in perspective.’

This is the video that was just released:

Collin Rugg:

JUST IN: Footage released of number 1 ranked golfer Scottie Scheffler getting arrested while turning into the parking lot before the second round of the PGA Championship.

Talk about an overreaction.

The footage shows Scheffler turning left into the Valhalla parking lot before the officer appeared to attach himself to the side of the car.

The grainy footage is the only footage available at the moment because the officer did not activate his bodycam.

Despite this, the charges were not dropped against Scheffler who is facing up to 10 years in prison for second-degree assault.

That should have been the end of it. But, of course, in cities run by liberals, that’s never the case.

The two women pulling the strings in Louisville seem straight out of the DEI handbook. Based on how everything has unfolded, the police chief and the prosecutor appear to be poster women for choosing charity over excellence.

This is the Louisville chief of police. Her name is Jacquelyn Gwinn-Villaroel.

Truth be told, those eyebrows should be a felony.

It appears that Gwinn-Villaroel was chosen to be the chief of police solely for diversity reasons after the city of Louisville suffered a PR disaster with the shooting of Breonna Taylor—a shooting that Ann Coulter has persuasively argued was justified.

When Gwinn-Villaroel was appointed, the New York Times led with this headline: “In a First, Louisville Taps a Black Woman to Lead Its Troubled Police Force.”

The New York Times:

Louisville’s interim police chief, Jacquelyn Gwinn-Villaroel, will continue permanently in her role and take over a department that has been in turmoil since the 2020 police killing of Breonna Taylor and was excoriated this year in a scathing U.S. Department of Justice report.

Ms. Gwinn-Villaroel, 49, will be the first Black woman to serve permanently as the Louisville Metro Police Department’s chief. She had been interim chief since January, after the resignation of her predecessor, Erika Shields, one of several recent leadership changes.

“Over the past six months, Chief Gwinn-Villaroel has shown our city that she has exactly what I’m looking for in a chief and exactly what our community is looking for in a leader,” Mayor Craig Greenberg, who took office in January, said Thursday in a news release announcing her hiring. “She has extensive experience in law enforcement leadership and a record of reform.”


Ms. Gwinn-Villaroel is the fifth person to lead Louisville’s police force since June 2020, when Chief Steve Conrad was fired after officers killed a popular restaurant owner in a firefight during that summer’s protests. Two interim chiefs filled in before Ms. Shields took over the department in January 2021.

Louisville’s police department began drawing intense scrutiny in 2020 after officers shot and killed Ms. Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency room technician, in her apartment during a no-knock warrant raid in the middle of the night. Four officers involved in that shooting were charged last year.

In addition, this is Louisville’s top prosecutor, the governor-appointed commonwealth’s attorney. Her name is Gerina Whethers.

This is what the Louisville prosecutor website has to say about Gerina (emphasis ours):

Gerina D. Whethers has provided over 20 years of public service to the Commonwealth of Kentucky bringing experience in prosecuting cases, creating new program initiatives, trainings, and fostering lasting federal, state, and community partnerships. Prior to her appointment as Commonwealth Attorney, as Cabinet Secretary, she lead the Kentucky Personnel Cabinet in the development of innovative policies and procedures protecting the health and well-being of over 24,000 state employees. As Cabinet Secretary, Gerina lead the Kentucky Employees’ Health Plan (representing 7% of the state population), KY Work Compensation Plan, KY Employee Assistance Program, KY Deferred Compensation Plan, the Department of Human Resource Administration, and the Office of Diversity, Equality, and Training.

Whethers was appointed by the liberal governor of the state, Andy Beshear. Local media reported her hiring this way: “For first time ever, Black woman appointed as Louisville’s top prosecutor.” No surprise that this is what you get when you elect a liberal governor…


LOUISVILLE, Ky. —Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear has appointed a new commonwealth’s attorney for Jefferson County.

Gerina Whethers, of Louisville, is taking over the role. She is the first Black woman to serve in this post in Jefferson County.


Most recently, Whethers served as secretary of the Kentucky Personnel Cabinet, having been one of Beshear’s first appointments in December 2019.

“Gerina has the vast legal experience required as well as the dedication and compassion needed to best serve the people of Louisville,” Beshear said. “Having worked together for many years, from our time in the Attorney General’s Office to my current cabinet, I have seen firsthand how talented Gerina is, and I am proud to appoint her Commonwealth’s Attorney for Jefferson County.”


The president of the NAACP’s Louisville branch also gave support for the appointment.

“The Governor has made a wise and solid decision,” said a NAACP spokesperson. “Secretary Whethers has the capacity, understanding and willingness to bring tremendous assets to the city having lived in the county, being a prosecutor and as personnel’s cabinet secretary. This opportunity gives her a wide perspective about not only the law, but about the City of Jefferson County.”


Beshear’s office said Whethers is actively involved in many community organizations and boards, including serving as an executive board member of the Louisville Chapter of the NAACP.

So, shock of all shocks: it appears that these two women were hired solely to score diversity points in light of the George Floyd “racial reckoning.” The death of Floyd is truly the gift that keeps on giving.

It shouldn’t surprise anyone at this point that the focus of the Louisville prosecutors is on DEI—something we can also likely infer about their police department from the way this has been handled. After all, by all accounts, it seems that DEI played a major role in the promotion of these ladies to their positions of power.

Scheffler’s attorney issued a stinging statement, and the golf champ has multiple witnesses and video evidence on his side. There’s no way the Louisville Keystone Cops could secure a conviction here, so one has to wonder why these women are pushing so hard for one. Is this another example of women in powerful positions who are out of their depth? It certainly seems that way.

And speaking of ineptitude, rounding out these legal follies is liberal Mayor Greenberg, who gleefully hired Gwinn-Villaroel back in June of 2023.

It’s downright shocking to witness this group of bungled leaders completely botch the situation beyond belief.

Daily Mail:

Scottie Scheffler is due in court on June 3 after Louisville Police gave no indication that the four charges against the world No 1 golfer will be dropped. During the press conference, police chief Jacquelyn Gwinn-Villaroel revealed that Detective Bryan Gillis did not turn on his body-worn camera – a violation of police policy. Officials also released two new videos of the moment Scheffler was put in handcuffs and arrested. They said on Thursday that they are not aware of any footage of the initial interaction between the golf star and police.

Scottie will fight this, and in the end, the only victim will be the city of Louisville, which should never be allowed to host another noteworthy event again. The Daily Mail piece goes on:

Following the short press conference, when neither the mayor nor cops took questions from the media, Scheffler’s attorney released a stinging statement.

‘(This) won’t impact my case at all. Our position is the same as it was last Friday. Scottie Scheffler didn’t do anything wrong, we’re not interested in settling the case, we’ll either try it or it will be dismissed,’ he said.

‘It’s very simple. All the evidence that continues to come out continues to support what Scottie said all along – this was a chaotic situation and a miscommunication and he didn’t do anything wrong.

‘We’re prepared to litigate the case if we need to. If we don’t need to, fine, but our position remains the same: it will either be dismissed or we’ll go to trial… we’ll let the process play out.

He added: ‘My role is to represent Scottie Scheffler and that’s what I’ll continue to do. Nothing has changed since my comment last week: he didn’t do anything wrong. We will go to trial or the case will be dismissed. We have no interest in settling the case, there are no discussions regarding that. We’re prepared to litigate as need be.

Romines was aware of the video which was subsequently released on Thursday. ‘I’ve seen everything that there is to see. Everything out there supports exactly what Scottie has said from the start.’

This is stunningly humiliating for Louisville, the mayor, the prosecutor, and the police department. The fact that they are now doubling down on it is absolutely mind-boggling. Sadly, our entire country has turned into one big joke thanks to failed left-wing policies, like this dangerous DEI agenda.
