Cop who arrested Scottie Scheffler told: “You must be fired”

According to a report, the police officer who detained Scottie Scheffler had a history of misbehavior, including smashing his squad car and doing donuts in it.

According to a report, the police officer who apprehended Scottie Scheffler was suspended for five days after it was discovered that he was “doing donuts” in his patrol car with a “intoxicated civilian” in the rear.

Reporter Jason Riley of WDRB made the discovery.

Scheffler was taken into custody by Officer Bryan Gillis prior to the second round of the PGA Championship at Valhalla.

It is said that the incident involving the “donuts” happened in May 2013.

Following an internal probe, the Louisville Metro Police Department sent Gillis a letter stating that his “conduct unbecoming” while on duty would result in a five-day unpaid suspension.

One golf enthusiast commented on X in response to the report, saying, “Officer Gillis’s prior incident reports were a -1200 lock of the century.”

“And yet, still employed?” said a second.

“He needs to be fired at the very least,” the writer stated. He ought to be prosecuted for his actions during the incident, which he entirely instigated, as well as for lying about almost everything else.

“The authority and power that come with being a police officer should not be placed in his hands.”

The news comes after another startling disclosure.

Gillis was reportedly disciplined on May 23 for failing to turn on his body camera when he stopped Scheffler at roughly six in the morning ET.

The golfer, who has maintained his innocence and said the whole thing is a “big misunderstanding,” was trying to flee the scene of a fatal incident.

Scheffler faces charges of reckless driving, second-degree assault, third-degree criminal mischief, and disobeying an officer’s traffic signals. He contests all of these allegations.

Chief of the Louisville Metro Police Department Jacquelyn Gwinn-Villaroel announced that Gillis had been given “corrective action” as a result of an internal probe.

“This corrective action has been notated on a performance observation form which is in line with our disciplinary protocol and practices,” the speaker stated during a press conference.
“We respect the legal system, so we will allow the courts to proceed in accordance with the law.”

Scheffler’s arraignment is set for June 3, one week prior to Pinehurst’s 2024 U.S. Open.

After a demanding major week, new father Scheffler has made the decision to play in this week’s PGA Tour event rather than take a break.

The 27-year-old had a rough start to the competition as he shot an unusual first round of two over par at the Charles Schwab Challenge.
