BREAKING: World’s Top Golfer Arrested (Video)

(TheRedAlertNews.com) – In a startling turn of events, the world’s No.1 golfer, Scottiе Scheffler, was arrested and taken to jail after an incident near Valhalla Golf Club.

Watch the video below.

This shocking development occurred just before Scheffler was scheduled to play in the second round of the PGA Championship.

Captured in viral footage, Scheffler was seen handcuffed and being escorted into a police vehicle. During the distressing moment, he was heard pleading with a nearby reporter, “Can you please help me?”

The trouble began when police instructed Scheffler to stop his vehicle “at a traffic barricade trying to get into Valhalla. That traffic barricade was set up after a pedestrian was hit and killed by a shuttle bus.”

Instead, Scheffler continued to drive, giving the officer “minor injuries after Scheffler refused to stop and dragged the officer with his car.”

Louisville Department of Corrections later released his mugshot and Scheffler now faces several charges, including: second-degree assault of a police officer (a felony), third-degree criminal mischief, reckless driving and disregarding traffic signals from an officer directing traffic.

Although Scheffler was not involved in the incident, the resulting traffic chaos affected his route to the club. Initially scheduled to tee off at 8:48 AM ET, Scheffler’s start time was delayed to 10:08 AM due to the incidents.

As per ESPN, there was confusion when Scheffler and other players were allowed to pass through the gates while general access was restricted. The officers involved reportedly did not recognize Scheffler, which caused further complications.

ESPN reporter Jeff Darlington recorded the incident. Police cautioned him when he tried to intervene, with one officer stating, “Right now, he’s going to jail. He’s going to jail and there’s nothing you can do about it. Period.”

Scheffler’s arrest stemmed from a misunderstanding as he attempted to bypass a traffic barricade set up after the nearby accident.

Sky Sports reports indicate Scheffler was released around 7 AM local time. Players typically arrive at tournaments like the PGA Championship several hours early to prepare, and Scheffler’s morning was unexpectedly disrupted by this incident.

He completed his first round tied for 12th place.
