Agreed but ultimately it will surely come down to a judge to make that decision and any form of speculation won't change that decision based on the evidence they have at hand. Surely it has to go through due process

I dunno how the US system works and, even more so, state by state
Is it still the case in the UK that if the police determine they have insufficient evidence to give them a fair chance of a 'win', then charges will be dropped (so no judge)

Like you I have no idea how the US works. Here, don't the police need to get a charging authority from the CPS to proceed further and so if they present a case with limited evidence chances are they'll be told to drop it.

Based on years of watching US crime dramas, so practically an expert ;) , it is pretty much the same. For our CPS, they have the DA's office, District Attorney.

Read the comments

And those comments are from as @Slab said “fanboy” etc “PGATetc”

There doesn’t appear to be a single comment from someone within main stream media or players etc saying that the charges should be dropped etc because of who he is

And should be treated as such , just randoms wanting the guy they support to be free

So whats your point?

If PGAT fanboys are saying it, then is it not worth discussing?

Pretty sure there will be people within the PGAT, and schefflers legal team that are doing their utmost to get them dropped.

And so they should if the charges are trumped up.

From what witnesses have, allegedly, said....the cop tripped up and then went beserk to show his authority.

Even look at the aftermath. Police escort back to the course after being taken away, cops at the event treating Scottie without issue. You reckon they'd do that if there was an actual evidence Scottie assaulted on of their own. Not a chance.

Isn't that generally part of his legal team's job description???

I'd be surprised if Scheffler's legal team were doing everything they could to get him charged.

I'll nibble, how are they unbalanced?

I used to listen to the odd NLU podcast, and I generally like their views and golf trips… but a lot of the gossip they post is made up.

It’s classic social media: they started off with something fun and engaging, had enough success to become professional influencers, but once it was their job they need to constantly produce content and remain relevant and the quality drops off.

Police officers, making stuff up? I can hardly believe it.

As it happens this cop has some history...

Gillis was suspended for five days for "conduct unbecoming" for driving "an intoxicated civilian in your police vehicle" and "proceeding to doing 'donuts' in a business parking lot," according to a Sept. 18, 2013, memo by then-Chief Steve Conrad.

He was also disciplined for pursuing "a vehicle that did not commit a violent felony or wanted on a warrant," according to a June 9, 2021, memo by then-Chief Erika Shields.

Gillis was found "at fault" for accidents on May 22, 2021, and Aug. 6, 2019, that led to oral reprimands.

Gillis was also found to be "at fault" for a Dec. 1, 2013, accident that led to an oral reprimand and mandatory driver's training.

The officer was hit with one-day suspensions in both 2010 and 2011 for failing to show up to court. That was followed by a four-day ban in 2012 for continuing to miss court appearances, documents showed.
