This happened in the county of Mecklenburg, where Charlotte, the state's most populous city, is located. Varner III, a champion in the Saudi Super League Washington tournament last year and one of the PGA players who joined the LIV in its 2021 appearance, recently joined Dustin Johnson's 4 Aces from Bubba's Range Goats Watson.

The golfer was in low police custody at 7.30pm. According to the informant, he conducted the effects of a dangerous substance on Providence Road, in the area south of Charlotte, when he was ambushed by the agents. The amount of alcohol on the test revealed the double amount of alcohol permitted.

The golfer was free to pay a loan of 500 dollars, but his legal problems did not end yet. He will have to appear before a game on the 19th of January to respond to his actions, one week before he officially begins the 2024 season of the LIV with the Mayakoba tournament, from 2 to 4 February.

North Carolina, one of the thirteen original states of the United States of America, is located between the Atlantic and the Appalachian Mountains, including part of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The state is primarily agricultural, with heavy tobacco production and pig farms, as well as attracting considerable tourism thanks to its lovely Atlantic coastline and mountains.

It borders South Carolina and Georgia to the south, Tennessee to the west, and Virginia to the north, and is populated by over 10 million people as reported in 2020 data. North Carolina and South Carolina are usually collectively referred to as "the Carolinas".

The state capital is Raleigh, while the largest city is Charlotte. Within its territory there are four national forest parks (Pisgah, Croatan, Nantahala and Uwharrie) which are administered by the United States Forest Service, a branch of the United States Department of Agriculture.
