HONOLULU, Jan. 20 (UPI) -- Golfer Robert Allenby said he was robbed and beaten in Honolulu Friday night but his story conflicts with witness accounts.
Allenby claims he was jumped, beaten, robbed, stuffed in a car and dumped 10 km away after he left Amuse Wine Bar in Waikiki. He said two homeless people then kicked him and beat him to steal whatever was left on him.
However, a homeless woman named Charade Meade, who helped Allenby after his attack, said she saw him one block from the wine bar trying to pay two men $500 to return his belongings, after which they became aggressive.
That leaves into question what happened in the three hours from the time he left the wine bar and was discovered by Meade.
"I'm guessing she's getting paid," he said in a text to Golf Central. "It's such a shame that people are focusing on whether the story is true. I say you only have to look at me to see the truth."
