Allenby charged with trespass and disorderly conduct

AUSTRALIAN golfer Robert Allenby - who last year was caught up in a bizarre kidnapping saga - has been arrested outside a US casino and charged with disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing.

Earlier he had failed to make the cut in the John Deere Classic. Allenby, 45, was arrested at 2.30am outside Jumer's Casino in Rock Island, Illinois.

His bond was set at $1950, according to local television.

Allenby missed the cut by three strokes after making an even-par 142. In early 2015, Allenby was discovered with serious bruising a few hours after he visited a restaurant with friends in Hawaii.

He said he had been abducted and assaulted.

A Hawaiian man has since been sentenced to five years in prison for using the golfer's credit cards and identification.
