Obama’s Buddy Thrown Behind Bars For Allegedly Soliciting Prostitute

April 8, 2011 by  

Obama's buddy thrown behind bars for allegedly soliciting prostituteOne of President Barack Obama's longtime friends from Hawaii has been arrested in a prostitution sting.

According to media reports, Robert Titcomb, 49, was taken into custody with three other men on April 4 for allegedly soliciting sex from an undercover police officer posing as a prostitute. He was released after posting $500 bail, and he is scheduled to appear at the Honolulu District Court on May 2.

This wasn't Titcomb's first run-in with the law. In 1987, he was arrested for a DUI offense, according to the Honolulu Star Bulletin.

Obama and Titcomb, who have been friends since high school, celebrated the holidays together this past winter. Obama not only golfed with Titcomb on four separate occasions in an 11-day span, but their families also spent Christmas Day together, CNN records indicate. On December 30, the Obamas visited the Titcomb residence to dine, play volleyball and relax on the beach.

In an interview with the Star Bulletin in 2004, when Obama was gearing up for Illinois Senate campaign, Titcomb had high praise for his old pal.

"He’s honest, he’s truthful and he’s always encouraged the better things in you," Titcomb told the media outlet. "And you always go back to those people who water your plant, who water your garden."
