According to a report by ESPN, LIV golfer Harold Varner III was arrested on a charge of “driving while impaired” in Charlotte, North Carolina last week.

The 33-year-old Varner was arrested at 7:24 p.m. ET on Thursday and charged with misdemeanor for driving while impaired. Varner’s blood alcohol was registered at 0.16%, which equates to about six (12 oz.) beers, according to AlcoMeters, a website which sells breathalyzers.

Varner posted a $500 bond and will have to appear in district court on Jan. 19.

The Gastonia, North Carolina native, who now resides in Charlotte, graduated from East Carolina in 2012 and immediately turned pro. During his 10-year career on the PGA Tour, Varner earned about $10 million total. Since signing with LIV Golf in August 2022, Varner has banked over $25 million on the PIF-financed circuit.

This past season, Varner picked up a $4 million check for winning his maiden LIV Golf trophy at Trump National in Virginia.

Recently, Varner was traded from Bubba Watson‘s RangeGoats GC squad to Dustin Johnson‘s powerhouse 4Aces team.
