HONOLULU, Hawaii — President Barack Obama wrapped up his Hawaii vacation on Christmas Eve with one last round of golf with close friends. That group including an old school buddy who was arrested on suspicion of soliciting a prostitute.
According to TMZ.com, the photos obtained by the website show Obama’s second round of golf in Hawaii in the last week with Bobby Titcomb, who was arrest in April 2011 after allegedly approaching an undercover police officer for sex in downtown Hawaii.
Titcomb pled no contest to the charges and was fined $500. Since Titcomb stayed out of trouble for six months after the plea, the charge disappeared from his record.
Titcomb, 49, attended Punahou School with Obama in their hometown of Honolulu in the 1970s. The President graduated in 1979, a year before Titcomb.
The two have remained close over the years. In fact, Obama and his family usually spend a full day at Titcomb’s home during their annual Christmas vacations to Hawaii. Titcomb also attended Obama’s birthday celebration at the White House in August.
The prostitute charges didn’t represent Titcomb’s first run-in with the law. In 1987, he was arrested on drunken driving charges, which led to the 90-day suspension of his license and a $150 fine.
