Criminal charges have been dropped against Scottie Scheffler, ending a legal saga that began with images of the world’s top male golfer being arrested and handcuffed in Louisville, Kentucky, as he drove to the PGA Championship.

Jefferson County Attorney Mike O’Connell said during a court hearing Wednesday that prosecutors could not move forward with a case stemming from Scheffler’s May 17 arrest.

“Based upon the totality of the evidence, my office can not move forward in the prosecution of the charges filed against Mr. Scheffler,” O’Connell said. “Mr. Scheffler’s characterization that this was a ‘big misunderstanding’ is corroborated by the evidence. The evidence we reviewed supports the conclusion that Detective [Brian] Gillis was concerned for public safety at the scene when he initiated contact with Mr. Scheffler. However, Mr. Scheffler’s actions and the evidence surrounding their exchange during this misunderstanding do not satisfy the elements of any criminal offenses.”
