Close Friend of Obama Arrested for Soliciting Prostitute in Honolulu
ABC News at the time of the arrest: One of President Barack Obama’s oldest friends has been arrested in Honolulu on suspicion of soliciting a prostitute. Robert “Bobby” Titcomb was one of four men arrested in an undercover prostitution sting operation Monday evening and later released on $500 bail, according to Honolulu police.
Titcomb, 49, attended Punahou School with Obama in their hometown of Honolulu in the 1970s. The president graduated in 1979, a year before Titcomb. Since their time together in school they have remained close. Titcomb has visited the White House on numerous occasions to see the president, most recently during Obama’s August birthday when he was included in a round of golf with Obama’s closest friends at the links of Andrews Air Force Base. Afterwards Titcomb, among other friends, joined the president for a barbeque at the White House.
