The cop who arrested Scottie Scheffler was suspended for five days after he was caught 'doing donuts' in his police vehicle with an 'intoxicated civilian' in the back, according to a report. 

The revelation was uncovered by WDRB reporter Jason Riley

Bryan Gillis was the officer who detained Scheffler before the second round of the PGA Championship at Valhalla. 

The 'donuts' incident is said to have occurred in May 2013. 

After an internal investigation, Gillis was written to by the Louisville Metro Police Department and told he would be suspended without pay for five days for 'conduct unbecoming' whilst on duty.

Reacting to the report, one golf fan wrote on X: "Previous incident reports for officer Gillis was a -1200 lock of the century."

Another added: "And yet, still employed?"

This person wrote: "At a minimum, he must be fired. He should face charges for his actions during the incident, which was completely created by him, and lying about those actions and nearly everything thing else. 

"He is not to be trusted with the power and authority that comes along with being a cop."

The news follows another shock revelation

On 23 May, it was confirmed Gillis was disciplined for not activating his body-worn camera when he stopped Scheffler at around 6am ET. 

The golfer was attempting to avoid the scene of a fatal incident and has repeatedly claimed he believes he has done nothing wrong and the whole thing is a 'big misunderstanding'. 

Scheffler is charged with with second-degree assault, third-degree criminal mischief, reckless driving and disregarding traffic signals from an officer, all of which he denies

Louisville Metro Police Department Chief Jacquelyn Gwinn-Villaroel said Gillis has received "corrective action" following an internal investigation

In a news conference, she said: "This corrective action has been notated 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."

Scheffler is scheduled to be arraigned on 3 June, a week before the 2024 U.S. Open at Pinehurst. 

New dad Scheffler has decided not to take a break after an exhausting major week and is in the field for this week's PGA Tour event. 

The 27-year-old didn't start the tournament well, carding an uncharacteristic two-over par first round at the Charles Schwab Challenge
