SAO PAULO (AP) —Brazil’s federal police arrested Argentine golfer Angel Cabrera for handing over to his hometown on charges of several alleged crimes between 2016 and last year, two police officers Said.
Cabrera, who won both the Masters and US Open championships, was on Interpol’s Red Code list.
Police said in a statement that they were arrested in the upper class of Rio de Janeiro without announcing the suspect’s name. It only described him as a 51-year-old Argentine.
Two Rio-based federal police officers separately confirmed to the Associated Press that Cabrera was the man arrested. Both sides agreed to provide information only if anonymity was granted, as they were not allowed to discuss the topic publicly.
According to a police statement, the arrest was approved by the Brazilian Supreme Court and the man was detained until handed over to Argentina. Argentine officials have charged the suspect with assault, theft, illegal intimidation, and repeated contempt for the authorities, according to a statement.
Argentine media reported in early January that Cabrera’s ex-wife, Silvari Badero, had filed two accusations against golfers. Another former partner, Cecilia Torres, reportedly claimed that Cabrera had beaten and threatened her and tried to turn her over in his car in 2016.
