Scottie Scheffler was handcuffed and detained by Louisville Metro Police at Valhalla on Friday morning, US time.

According to ESPN’s Jeff Darlington, Scheffler attempted to drive past a police officer Friday morning outside Valhalla. There is a traffic issue due to an accident outside the club, where a shuttle bus hit and killed a pedestrian early on Friday morning. The officer attempted to attach himself to Scheffler’s car, followed by the officer telling Scheffler to get out of the vehicle.

When Scheffler exited the car the officer shoved Scheffler, placed him in handcuffs and put him in the back of a police cruiser. ESPN video confirmed Darlington’s report.

Scheffler allegedly pleaded for help to an ESPN crew; when Darlington attempted to intervene, the police officer responded, “There’s nothing you can do, he’s going to jail.”

The PGA of America has not responded to a Golf Digest request for comment at this time.

Scheffler, the world No.1, has won four of his past five tournaments, highlighted by his second Masters title and becoming the first player to successfully defend the Players Championship. Scheffler shot a first-round four-under 67 at Valhalla.
