Robert Allenby arrested for disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing at casino after missing cut at John Deere Classic
Robert Allenby in the news again for his actions outside the golf course.
The 45-year-old Australian golfer was arrested for criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct at 2:30 a.m. early Saturday morning outside Jumer's Casino and Hotel in Rock Island, Ill. The casino is about 20 minutes from TPC Deere Run, where this week's John Deere Classic is being held. Rock Island Police told GolfDigest.com Allenby spent "probably less than an hour" in jail before being released after posting bond.
Allenby missed the cut in the tournament on Friday -- his 19th missed cut in 21 events this season. Allenby has just over $25,000 in earnings on the PGA Tour in 2015-'16.
This news comes about a year and a half after Allenby had another odd off-the-course incident, that time in Hawaii. The Aussie claims to have been kidnapped, drugged and robbed at a bar in Hawaii while playing at the 2015 Sony Open. Golf Channel reported that Allenby was seen at a strip club earlier that night, but Hawaiian police refuted that claim and said their investigation found no evidence that he was at the club.
WQAD-8 Quad Cities first reported the incident, and the charges from the early morning of Aug. 13 were confirmed with the Rock Island Police jail.
