According to a report by a Louisville radio and TV personality Terry Mainers, the charges against PGA Golfer Scottie Scheffler will be dropped today. At press time, the charges have not been dropped yet.

Mainers is reporting that an agreement is in place. This will not allow each party to pursue legal action against one another.

Scheffler was arrested on May 17th before the second round of the PGA Championship in Louisville, Kentucky.

The New Jersey native, who currently resides in Dallas, Texas, is one of the best golfers on the PGA tour, was arrested on May 17th outside of Valhalla Golf Club. He was detained and then arrested after he allegedly drove through a police barricade.

The road had been blocked and the cars were stopped as police were investigating an early morning fatal car accident outside of the course involving a vendor.

An odd scenario played out where Scheffler was arrested, charged, and released less than two hours later. He arrived 56 minutes before his tee time.

Normally, if a person is arrested, they are in the process for hours before being released at least 12 hours or more. Sometimes, it may take a few days if the process happens on weekends.

The two-time Masters winner was charged with second-degree assault of a police officer, third-degree criminal mischief, and reckless driving. He was also charged with disregarding traffic signals from an officer directing traffic.

While he faced one felony and three misdemeanors, he called it a “big misunderstanding.” Since his arrest, the police have released several videos of the incident.
