Detective Who Arrested Scottie Scheffler Breaks Silence After Golfer Gets ALL Charges Dropped After PGA Championship Arrest

Bryan Gillis — the Louisville police detective who arrested Scottie Scheffler in Valhalla earlier this month — fumed that his «honesty and integrity» were challenged after all charges against the world No. 1 golfer were dropped Wednesday.

Scheffler faced four charges, including second-degree assault on a police officer, following the dramatic events of May 17; when he was arrested and led away in handcuffs after arriving at the second round of the PGA Championship.

The 27-year-old was accused of speeding off in his car when officers told him to stop – pulling Gillis to the ground in the process – before he was arrested and jailed in a stunning series of events.

On Wednesday, however, Scheffler was cleared of all charges after the Jefferson County District Attorney’s office filed a motion to dismiss the case, acknowledging his claim that it was a misunderstanding «is supported by the evidence.»

After the law firm decided not to pursue criminal charges, Gillis released a statement praising the golf star for agreeing to walk away from the incident while paying tribute to the family of John Mills — the 69-year-old hit by a bus and killed near Valhalla before Scheffler’s arrest.

‘Mr. Scheffler and I agree that there will be no ill will going forward. Instead of negative public reaction, he chose to speak with dignity, humility and respect. My family and I appreciate it.

“It was unfortunate and troubling to hear Steve Romines comment today claiming that there was a ‘false arrest’ and questioning my honesty and integrity. I would be surprised and disappointed if Mr. Scheffler actually participated in these statements. To be clear, I did drugs by the car, went to the ground and sustained visible injuries to my knees and wrists. I will recover from this and it will be fine. That is the extent of my comment on the incident. The reality is that there are more important things in the world right now than tossing and turning. A person lost their life that day and a family lost a loved one.

“At the end of the day, I’m proud to work for the people in the community to keep them safe. I have spent two decades trying to protect this city through some trying times. And I would like to continue to do so without the distraction caused by this series of events.

“I wish Scottie Scheffler and his family all the best.

Then he added, “PS… Yes, the ministry made us buy $80 damn pants. For those concerned, they were truly destroyed. But Scottie, everything is fine. I never thought that this would make me wear the most famous pants in the country for a few weeks. Take care and be safe.”
