World No. 1 golfer Scottie Scheffler ask for HELP and detained in cuffs by cops

36

World No. 1 golfer Scottie Scheffler was detained in handcuffs by police outside Valhalla Golf Club as he found himself on the wrong side of law enforcement on Friday morning.

What Happened?

Officers reportedly asked him to stop his vehicle, only for Scheffler to keep driving for around 10-20 yards. 

In remarkable footage on Friday morning, Scheffler was seen being led into a police car in handcuffs as he tried to enter the club before his second round of the PGA Championship.

‘Can you please help me?’ a panicked Scheffler could be heard asking in the stunning clip.

Why the Second Round of the PGA Championship was Delayed

The incident occurred as the second round of the PGA Championship was delayed Friday due to a fatal accident near the club.

A pedestrian was hit and killed by a shuttle bus outside the golf course. Scheffler was not involved in the accident but it caused a massive traffic backup around Valhalla.

‘You’re Going to Jail Also’

As the golfer was then led away, ESPN reporter Jeff Darlington – who filmed the incident – attempted to get the attention of officers. He was warned: ‘Back up or you’re going to jail also!’

‘Right now, he’s going to jail,’ another officer said. ‘He’s going to jail and there’s nothing you can do about it. Period.’

It is claimed that confusion arose as Scheffler tried to navigate his way around a traffic cordon set up following the accident. The entrances to Valhalla were swarming with dozens of cop cars on Friday morning.

According to Darlington the situation moved ‘very quickly, very rapidly, very aggressively’. Scheffler was put in a squad car – still in handcuffs – before reportedly being released.

It’s claimed that Scheffler was unaware that the person he was dealing with was a police officer.

According to Sky Sports, Scheffler had been released by around 7am local time.
