What’s going on with Scheffler’s arrest

Scottie Scheffler, world No. 1 in golf, was arrested by police on Thursday (local time) ahead of the second round of the PGA Championship. Scheffler was charged with second-degree assault, reckless driving and neglect of police signals.

Scheffler has won four of the last five games and is aiming for a Grand Slam by winning the Masters. Though not in his prime Tiger Woods, the golf world was shocked by the arrest of Scheffler, the reigning champion and the overwhelming favorite. What happened.

Valhalla Golf Club is located about 30 kilometers east of Louisville, Kentucky. It usually takes about 20 minutes from downtown. However, when men’s major golf competition takes place in the U.S., crowds gather and congestion occurs. It is complicated to sell the golf course as a parking lot at houses or shopping malls near the golf course.

A minor traffic accident occurred near the entrance of the golf course on Saturday and an accident of death occurred at around 5 a.m. on Sunday when the first round took place. A safety guard was hit by a shuttle bus carrying volunteers while crossing the street and died instantly. Police closed traffic to recover from the accident, and organizers announced that the event would be postponed for about an hour. However, they did not say what caused the accident.
Due to traffic control, players could not enter the front gate and entered the back gate. It was difficult to pass the accident site. Scheffler arrived at the stadium around 6 p.m. It was before sunrise and it rained.

The details of Scheffler’s arrest vary slightly from witness to witness.

“I tried to pull over, but Scheffler ignored the instructions and accelerated the car, and I was pulled over with my fall,” Louisville police Brian Gillis said. Gillis was taken to a hospital with pain and abrasions on his left wrist and knee, the police report said.

“Police tried to stop Scheffler, but he didn’t stop because of an misunderstanding,” said Jeff Darlington, an ESPN reporter who witnessed the incident. The police were swearing and being dragged by the car next to the driver’s seat. Scheffler’s car moved about 15 yards. The police started knocking on the car. “She pulled down the window and pulled her out, handcuffed her, and put her in the police car.”

“I thought we were going to follow the police instructions, but I didn’t get it right,” Scheffler said. “She tried to enter the golf course for the game and submitted her ID and tried to go inside according to the police instructions,” Scheffler’s attorney said.

She spent about an hour at the Louisville Police Department. After being released at around 8:40 a.m., she arrived at the stadium at 9:12 a.m. and started playing at 10:08 a.m. Despite the turmoil, she birdied the first hole. In the second round, she shot 5-under 66 with six birdies and a bogey. She is tied for fourth by three shots behind Xander Schopley, who is leading the team, with an interim tally of 9 under par.

On the day, spectators wore shirts with instructions to release Scheffler and T-shirts with his mugshot printed on them. Cheffler was generally supported.

Scheffler said, “My condolences to the family of the victims of the car accident. It was a dark, rainy, chaotic situation, and there was a big misunderstanding. The police worked to protect us.” “I stretched out in the detention center. I focused on my routine, but I warmed up because I thought I could get out soon and play. I was lucky to be back and play.”안전 토토사이트
