LMPD have released two videos of the Scheffler case

Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD) has released two unseen videos after confirming its officer Bryan Gillis ‘violated policy’ for not turning on his body camera during the arrest of Scottie Scheffler.


Scheffler, 27, was detained by police and led away in handcuffs after he misunderstood the traffic flow situation following a fatal collision in the early hours last Friday.



Shocking images showed the World No.1 being frog-marched to the back of a police vehicle.

Scheffler was charged with second-degree assault of a police officer, third-degree criminal mischief, reckless driving and disregarding traffic signals from an officer.


He was due to appear in court on 21 May but his arraignment was rescheduled to 3 June, a week before the 2024 US Open at Pinehurst.


But a big update on the case emerged on Thursday 23 May courtesy of Louisville Metro Police Department Chief Jacquelyn Gwinn-Villaroel during a press conference.


Two unseen videos were also then released.


Scroll down to watch the press conference, and to see the two videos…



“Regarding the results of our internal investigation, Detective Gillis did have an encounter as we know with Mr Scottie Scheffler.


“Detective Gillis should have turned on his body-worn camera, but did not. His failure to do so is a violation of LMPD policy on uniforms and equipment, subject category ‘body-worn camera’, and he was sustained for violation of our policy 4.31.6 procedures and 4.31.7 operation.


“Detective Gillis did not have his body-worn camera operationally ready as required by our policy. He was performing a law enforcement action as defined in our policy.


“Further, in section 4.31.7 states, ‘members will maintain their BWC in a constant state of operational readiness’.


“Detective Gillis was counselled by his supervisor. We understand the seriousness of the failure to capture this interaction, which is why our officer has received corrective action for this policy violation.


“This corrective action has been noted on a performance observation form, which is in line with our disciplinary protocol and practices.


“We respect the judicial process and we will allow the courts to proceed accordingly. We will not be able to make any further statements as relates to this matter.


“At the conclusion of this press conference as you’ve already heard, we will release the documents as follows. You will find the investigating findings memorandum by the commander of the unit. You will also see the failure to activate form completed by Detective Gillis. You will also find our policy located as well, as well as the two aforementioned video footage that the Mayor has mentioned.”



After hearing LMPD’s press conference, Scheffler’s attorney Steven Rominees said: “Scottie Scheffler didn’t do anything wrong. Our position remains the same. We will either try it or it will get dismissed.”


Romines has told CNN he plans to plead not guilty to the charges.



Two unseen videos of the Scheffler arrest were then released by LMPD, one from a nearby traffic poll camera and another from a nearby police dash cam.


We will let you make your own mind up as to what really happened.

A spokesperson for the Jefferson County Attorney’s office confirmed on Tuesday that ‘no decision has been made regarding the prosecution of the case involving Mr Schefler’.


Multiple Louisville police officials have agreed the felony assault charge Scheffler is facing is ‘excessive’, a source told CNN on Wednesday.


LMPD’s news conference about Scheffler’s case took place at 11.45am on Thursday 23 May.


That was two hours before Scheffler teed off in the first round of the Charles Schwab Challenge on home turf in



Scheffler went on to card a lacklustre 2-over 72.
