 In a press conference held on Thursday, May 23, Mayor Craig Greenberg and Chief Jacquelyn Gwinn-Villaroel of the Louisville Metro Police Department disclosed that Detective Bryan Gillis violated departmental protocol by failing to activate his body cam.

The incident took place at the entrance to the Valhalla Golf Club during the arrest of the world’s top-ranked golfer Scottie Scheffler. Scheffler was arrested on May 17 and was charged with several offenses, including felony second-degree assault of a police officer.

 Scheffler’s arrest has garnered a lot of attention, not only because of his high-profile status but also due to the arresting officer’s missteps. Detective Gillis, who responded to the scene earlier than his scheduled reporting time, failed to turn on his body cam during the critical moments of the encounter.
