Scottie Scheffler’s arraignment has been postponed until June 3

Scottie Scheffler’s arraignment on multiple charges stemming from an incident that occurred before the second round of the PGA Championship has been postponed until June 3.

Scheffler’s attorney, Steve Romines, told ESPN that the not guilty plea will be entered on the new date in Louisville. The world number one is not required to attend the summons, which was scheduled to take place on Tuesday.

He told ESPN that a conflict in Romine’s schedule was the reason for the change in date.

Scheffler was arrested and handcuffed outside Valhalla Golf Club in the early morning hours of Friday for not following police orders during the investigation into the pedestrian’s death.

John Mills, 69, was pronounced dead at the scene at approximately 5:09 a.m. after being struck by a shuttle bus. He worked for a PGA Championship vendor. Traffic was stopped due to the accident and Scheffler was trying to get to the golf course when the accident occurred.

Scheffler was booked on four charges, including second-degree assault on a police officer after his vehicle allegedly dragged an officer to the ground.

Scheffler finished the PGA Championship in a four-way tie for eighth place at 13 after shooting a 65 in the final round on Sunday. Scheffler said on Sunday that he felt “somewhat tired, certainly a lot more tired than when I finished some other tournaments,” but added that he was “proud of the way I fought this week.”

Scheffler said the seriousness of his arrest may not have affected him until later Friday night. After being booked into a downtown detention center and released, he ate a few eggs and a piece of bacon before his second round, when he shot a 5-under 66.

Police Officer Det. Brian Gillis claims he parked Schaeffler’s SUV outside the golf course and tried to give him instructions. The officer alleges that the SUV accelerated and dragged him, resulting in injuries to his left wrist and knee.

A Louisville Metro Police Department spokesperson told ESPN on Saturday that Gillis failed to activate his video recorder during the incident.

Schaeffler described the incident as a “huge misunderstanding” and a “chaotic situation.”
