Louisville, KY — May 18, 2024 — Louisville May­or Craig Green­berg con­firmed on Sat­ur­day that there is no body cam­era footage avail­able of the inci­dent that led to the arrest of top-ranked golfer Scot­tie Schef­fler ear­ly Fri­day morning.

Schef­fler was arrest­ed ahead of his sched­uled tee time at the 2024 PGA Cham­pi­onship at Val­hal­la Golf Club. The two-time Mas­ters cham­pi­on was charged with sec­ond-degree assault of a police offi­cer, third-degree crim­i­nal mis­chief, reck­less dri­ving, and dis­re­gard­ing traf­fic signals.

Accord­ing to May­or Green­berg, the Louisville Metro Police offi­cer involved, Det. Bryan Gillis, either did not have his body cam­era acti­vat­ed or was not wear­ing one dur­ing the alter­ca­tion with Scheffler.

“The offi­cer did not have a body cam footage turned on dur­ing the inci­dent we will release the footage that we have,” Green­berg said. “We did not have any
 to my knowl­edge. We have not dis­cov­ered any video of the ini­tial con­tact between Offi­cer Gillis and Mr. Scheffler.”

The may­or added that there is some fixed cam­era footage from across the street that is expect­ed to be released soon. Schef­fler was even­tu­al­ly released and returned to the golf course, going on to shoot a 5‑under 66 in the sec­ond round.

In a state­ment, Schef­fler said it was a “very chaot­ic sit­u­a­tion” and a “big mis­un­der­stand­ing” over what he thought he was being asked to do by police. Fel­low PGA Tour pro Xan­der Schauf­fele defend­ed Schef­fler, call­ing him a “sol­id guy” with “no mal intent.”

The inci­dent remains under inves­ti­ga­tion, and Schef­fler is sched­uled to appear in court on May 21.
