Man arrested for allegedly using Robert Allenby's credit cards

A man has been arrested for allegedly charging an amount below $20,000 on credit cards belonging to Allenby

Honolulu police have made an arrest in the strange case involving PGA Tour golfer Robert Allenby.

Authorities have arrested Owen P. Harbison, 32, for allegedly making charges on three credit cards belonging to Allenby, the Honolulu Star Advertiser reported. Harbison has been charged with three counts of identity theft and second-degree theft and one count of unauthorized possession of confidential personal information.

The case dates back to mid-January when Allenby had dinner with friends at a Honolulu wine bar.

The golfer turned up hours later bruised and bloody, claiming that he had been robbed, kidnapped and dumped in a park some six miles away.

But in the days that followed witnesses questioned that account, telling various media outlets that Allenby was seen at a nearby strip club and had actually hurt himself by passing out and falling on a rock.

As of yet police have not pursued robbery or kidnapping charges.

At a tournament in Phoenix last month, Allenby said he had no memory of the few hours that passed between the time he left the wine bar and passersby put him in a cab back to his hotel.

"From 11:06 to 1:27 in the morning is a complete blank," he said, adding: "I can't tell you how frustrating that is."
