Professional golfer Robert Allenby's bizarre kidnapping story—the one in which he claims that he was kidnapped from a Honolulu wine bar, beaten, robbed, and then dumped in a park six miles away—keeps springing more leaks.
Two homeless people who came into contact with Allenby that night have already disputed major details in his story. Now a third, Chris Khamis, is claiming that Allenby's facial injuries were not the result of a beating, but of Allenby drunkenly passing out and bashing his own face on a lava rock. Moments earlier, Allenby apparently told Khamis that he had just come from a strip club, where he had been hoping to "get some action," and believed that he had been drugged.
From the Star-Advertiser:
"There was no crime (when I was present). It was his stupidity," Khamis said in an interview. "(Allenby) passed out and hit his head. I was there. Nobody pushed him out of a car."
Khamis didn't actually see Allenby hurt himself because he had turned around, looking for someone on the street with a phone to call a taxi. At the time, Allenby was not injured.
"I had turned around for just a second," Khamis said. "Nobody was around us."
But when Khamis looked back at Allenby, the golfer was on the ground, bleeding.
"There he was, I was like, 'Oh, my God!'"
Either all three of the witnesses who have come forward are lying and Allenby really was the victim of a well-executed kidnapping; or the man just got really drunk, went to a strip club, lost his wallet and phone, and then passed out face-first into a rock. One of these scenarios sounds much more plausible than the other.
