    I'd put Scottie Scheffler arrested and brought to jail as one of the most unlikeliest headlines I ever expected to read.

    If he was trying to drive around a fatal crash site through the median, I get why it got heated.

    Sounds like he was acting like an idiot based on the initial report.

    What in the world! I thought being a new father, less sleep/practice might slow him down, but I didn’t have this as one of the ways he’d be slowed down.

    Btw, somehow, you can still bet on Scheffler winning on FanDuel. I just cashed out on him, but he has pretty good odds now.

    Someone from his team should have let him know the situation and that patience was required.

    Jeff Darlington reported that Scotty drove around the police cars thinking it was security, but they were police officers. The officer stopped him and tried to grab him out of the car. Said when Scheffler got out, he slammed him against the hood, cuffed him, and put him in the back of a cruiser. He said everything happened fast and at one point Scheffler looked over to Darlington asking him for help.

    The crazy thing is, he was in a tournament vehicle. Seems like a massive misunderstanding that escalated very quickly.

    Charging him with second degree assault of a police officer.

    Scottie thought he was the typical security person that are all over the place there directing people around and wearing yellow jackets and vests. He had no idea what had happened and that this guy was a police officer. This is going to wind up being a huge misunderstanding and miscommunication.

    I have a friend who lives there and has been to the course every day this week. He said it's been a zoo and when he was leaving yesterday he felt like he leaving some lawless 3 day European rock festival. He also said they've been shouting all over the radio and TV airwaves the last 2 months how there would be no pedestrian walk-ins this year. They've allowed it for the Ryder Cup and PGA in the past, but were disallowing it this year because of the risks and traffic.

    But they apparently did not enforce it all and its been a free for all. There are hundreds of houses and businesses around the course and basically no parking. So people pay to park in yards and then walk the short distance to the course instead of going to the actual lots and taking the shuttle. And there are no sidewalkds and barely a shoulder. Sounds like something like what happened this morning with a pedestrian was inevitable. So sad someone lost their life. Seems like this could have been avoidable.

    Kind of funny, for the longest time people have acted like pro golfers were more sophisticated and intelligent athletes, and it seems like a lot of them are idiots and degenerates.

    Scottie received a police escort to the course so he could make his tee time. Oh, the irony.

    I’m guessing all charges will be dropped over this misunderstanding.

    Re: Breaking: Scott Scheffler arrested this morning

    If he dragged a police officer 10-20 yards (if that's what actually happpend), that's a bit more than a misunderstanding. They''ll need to at least move that down to a misdemeanor and make him pay some fine. The guy can't be above the law, right?

    He’s definitely not above the law and I don’t believe anyone thinks that.

    Like others have said, he thought it was a security guard which he deals with on a daily basis. These guards typically go out of their way to for the professional golfers entering the tournaments. And, as the number one golfer in the world trying to enter Valhalla in a Valhalla courtesy vehicle, I’m guessing he assumed the guard should’ve know who he was. I’m not saying or assuming he didn’t do anything wrong, but I can see how easily this escalated quickly. Just a terrible misunderstanding and so unfortunate that someone lost their life this morning trying to watch a golf tournament.

    It's been reported that other golfers were doing the same thing. Also, it was unclear that the officer was a cop or just security. He's back at Valhalla now with, with no small irony, a police escort.

    It's probably just a misunderstanding but in the sports world these days where you can gamble on anything, who's to say some cop or security person with a bundle on one player wouldn't pull something similar with a top ranked player to hinder their chances at winning?

    Mr. Scheffler won’t be the only person today that ends up in that same booking room wondering why they’re even there. Scottie has prestige, money, and backing the likes of which very few people on this planet can even conceive of. His ending will be different than what mine or yours would have been.
