Charges Dropped Against Robert Allenby Stemming from Incident at Illinois Casino

August 24, 2016

Prosecutors have dropped charges against PGA Tour player Robert Allenby stemming from his night in an Illinois casino.

Allenby was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing after an incident at Jumer’s Casino in Rock Island, Illinois, on Aug. 13, the night after he missed the cut at the John Deere Classic. A few days later, however, the casino’s head of security and director of security declined to press charges.

The 45-year-old Australian was arrested at about 2:30 a.m. on Aug. 13, and his bond was set at $1,500, which was first reported by WQAD.

“There’s nothing to be said or done about, nothing happened,” Allenby told USA Today Sports.

Allenby made headlines at the 2015 Sony Open in Honolulu when he said he was kidnapped, beaten and robbed after leaving a wine bar. In July 2015, Allenby fired caddie Mick Middlemo mid-round during the RBC Canadian Open. Middlemo claimed he was verbally abused.
