A few days ago, the golf fraternity went into shock when Scottie Scheffler was arrested just outside the Valhalla Golf Course ahead of the second round of the PGA Championship. The Lousiville Metro Police Department did so because, as per them, he tried to bypass the traffic.

On May 17, a fatal accident took place near Valhalla, after which the police presence was increased, and traffic was halted. Scottie Scheffler, who had to reach the course for the pre-round warm-up, ignored the police officer's instructions and evaded the traffic. While doing so, an officer was dragged by his car for some distance and was taken to hospital due to injuries.

Following that, the World No. 1 golfer was arrested. He hired Steven Romines, a Louisville, Kentucky-based attorney, for his defense. Romines is the co-owner of Romines, Weis & Young, a law firm based in Louisville. The firm consists of Mark Weis & Lawrence Young as the other two co-owners.

Since its formation, the firm has represented thousands of clients, and Romines has conducted over a hundred felony jury trials in both state and federal courts in Kentucky, as well as in multiple federal jurisdictions.

As per its website, Romines earned a B.A. from Centre College in 1989 and went on to study law at the University of Louisville School of Law and graduated in 1993.

Scottie Scheffler's attorney has been honored with multiple awards throughout his professional career. Romines has won the Frank Haddad Award for Outstanding Criminal Lawyer in Kentucky.

He was recognized by Kentucky Super Lawyers in 2008, 2009 and 2010 and was listed among the Best Lawyers in America. He has also been named among the Top 100 Trial Lawyers by the American Trial Lawyers Association.

"I am not negotiating, as we have no interest in settling" - Scottie Scheffler's lawyer calls for dropping all the charges

On May 22, Scottie Scheffler's lawyer Steven Romines issued a warning to the prosecutors that they were in no mood to change their stance. He said that either the prosecutor had to drop the charge or he was preparing to go to trial.

"Our position remains the same as it was last Friday," he said, as per Jeff Darlington of ESPN.
"I am not negotiating, as we have no interest in settling. I am preparing to litigate as needed, and the case will be dismissed, or we will go to trial because Scottie did absolutely nothing wrong"

Scottie Scheffler is scheduled for arraignment on Monday, June 3, just a few days before the Memorial Tournament.
