LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Criminal charges against Scottie Scheffler have been dismissed, ending a legal saga that began with images of the world’s top male golfer being arrested and handcuffed in Louisville during the PGA Championship.

Jefferson County Attorney Mike O’Connell, a local prosecutor, asked a judge Wednesday afternoon to drop the four charges against Scheffler.

Scheffler was not required to be in the courtroom Wednesday.

Scheffler was charged with a felony for assaulting a police officer with his vehicle, along with three misdemeanors.

Scheffler has said he simply misunderstood the commands coming from traffic officers.
