Scheffler's arraignment delayed until June 3

Scottie Scheffler's arraignment on multiple charges stemming from an incident prior to the second round of the PGA Championship has been delayed until June 3.

Scheffler's attorney, Steve Romines, told ESPN that a not guilty plea will be entered on the new date in Louisville. The world No. 1 is not required to attend the arraignment, which originally was scheduled for Tuesday.

A conflict in Romines' schedule was the reason for the change in date, he told ESPN.

Scheffler was arrested and handcuffed outside Valhalla Golf Club in the early morning hours Friday for not following police orders during a pedestrian fatality investigation.

John Mills, 69, was pronounced dead at the scene at about 5:09 a.m. after being hit by a shuttle bus. He was working for a PGA Championship vendor. Traffic was stopped because of the accident and Scheffler was attempting to reach the golf course when the incident occurred.

Scheffler was booked on four charges, including second-degree assault of a police officer after his vehicle allegedly dragged an officer to the ground.

Scheffler finished the PGA Championship in a four-way tie for eighth place at 13 under after shooting a 65 in Sunday's final round. Scheffler said Sunday that he felt "fairly tired, definitely a lot more tired than I have been finishing some other tournaments," but added that he was "proud of how I fought this week."

Scheffler said the gravity of his arrest probably didn't hit him until later Friday night. After being booked at a downtown detention center and released, he ate a few bites of eggs and a piece of bacon before his second round, when he shot a 5-under 66.

A police officer, Det. Bryan Gillis, alleges that he stopped Scheffler's SUV outside the golf course and attempted to give him instructions. The officer alleges that the SUV accelerated and dragged him, causing injuries to his left wrist and knee.

A Louisville Metro Police Department spokesman told ESPN on Saturday that Gillis failed to activate his bodycam video recorder during the incident.

Scheffler called the incident a "big misunderstanding" and "chaotic situation."
