Videos have been released of the arrest of No. 1 world-ranked golfer Scottie Scheffler.

Louisville Metro Police Department held a news conference Thursday, during which official spokespersons said charges against the golfer stemming from a May 18 arrest would not be dropped. However, videos of the incident were released later that day.

While no bodycam footage of the incident and subsequent arrest exists, the LMPD released both pole camera and dash cam footage of the arrest Thursday.

While the camera angles don’t have a particularly full view of the incident, both videos shine a little more light on the happenings.

The pole cam video shows Scheffler making a left-hand turn down a road, when a yellow-vested police officer chases and stops his vehicle. It’s unclear what’s said from the officer to Scheffler, but the golfer exits his car and is placed under arrest roughly 30 seconds after his vehicle is stopped.

Below is the pole video released of the incident (Scheffler’s car can be seen being stopped left of center in the video):

The first video, a nearly hourlong dash cam video, shows an alternate angle of the golfer being stopped and subsequently arrested and placed into a police vehicle. The incident can be seen beginning at 22:46 in the following video.

In both videos, Scheffler’s vehicle is obscured by buses along the road.

LMPD spokespersons said detective Bryan Gillis, the officer who arrested and filed an incident report on Scheffler, received internal ‘corrective action’ for his failure to activate his bodycam, as is department policy.
