PGA of America president Paul Levy has been arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.
Levy, 57, veered off Highway 111 in California on June 7 according to Riverside County Sheriff’s Office jail records.
Reports explain how Levy showed signs of being under the influence before being transported to an area hospital for evaluation and later booked into the Riverside County Jail.
“Paul Levy has accepted responsibility for his terrible lapse in judgment,” a PGA of America spokesman said in a statement. “He has expressed deep regret and fully understands how irresponsible his actions were.
“The PGA of America will support Paul as he seeks counseling, faces the consequences of his actions and works through the legal process in the months ahead.”
Levy became PGA president in late 2016. He is currently serving a two-year term.
