New witness: Robert Allenby hit head on rock, on ground for hours
The plot continues to thicken in the alleged beating and robbery of golfer Robert Allenby last weekend in Honolulu.
Allenby claims he was kidnapped after leaving a wine bar, then robbed and thrown from a car in downtown Honolulu last Friday night after missing the cut at the Sony Open.
However, a witness, Toa Kaili, tells Australia’s Channel 9 News that he and a friend found Allenby unconscious on a sidewalk and that Allenby’s injuries were the result of falling and hitting his head on a rock.
When Kaili and his friend attempted to help Allenby, he allegedly accused them of trying to steal his wallet.
"I was like, ‘Oh, no, brother, we are the ones who woke you up – we are the ones just helping you,’ " Kaili told Channel 9 News. "He was saying, ‘You don’t know who I am.’ "
Another witness, Charade Keane, told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that she saw the injured Allenby talking to two homeless men. Although she disputed Allenby’s claim that he had been thrown from the trunk of a car, she did say she believed the homeless men presented a threat to Allenby.
Allenby has announced that he will skip this week’s Humana Challenge to recover from his injuries.
Police are continuing to investigate the incident.
