HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - One of President Obama's closest friends is scheduled to appear at Honolulu District Court next month, after he allegedly solicited sex from an undercover officer posing as a prostitute.
Police arrested Robert Richard Titcomb, 49, of Waialua on suspicion of prostitution Monday night. He allegedly offered money for sex near the intersection of South Street and Pohukaina Street at about 9:40 PM.
Titcomb and the President have been close friends since high school. The two are frequently seen golfing and dining together when the Obama family visits Hawaii.
Police have been conducting undercover operations in the Downtown Honolulu area in response to community complaints about prostitution activity.
Also arrested on suspicion of prostitution at the same location Monday night were Joseph C. Chavez, 48, Jon M. Hatakenaka, 51, and Todd T. Shirai, 46.
Titcomb, Chavez and Shirai were released from police custody after each posting $500 bail. Hatakenaka is free after posting $1,000 bail.
titcomb busted on pohukaina
Uh, oh! Looks like he's not one of Eric Holder's people...tough luck, buddy - under the bus!
The one guy on earth who has the same nickname as Conway Twitty.
Titcomb??? You can’t make this stuff up. LMAO!!!!!!!!!!
Every punchline I think of is banning material.
Male or Female prostitute?
Obama’s Titcomb is a Dick.
(wonder how long that will stay?)
So was the undercover officer male or female?
Must be Honolulu Police acting stupidly. Nothing to see here . . . move along.
Has Obama said the cops acted stupidly yet?
the fact this information was released in conjunction with that pos in the wh is astonishing to me. CIA? NSA? FBI? did they approve? i think they did!
Need to get the police report so we can know the gender of the officer.
So, wait . . .the other three guys were prostitutes? Arrested on “suspicion of prostitution” and not “solicitation?” Was the undercover cop a guy?
“Male or Female prostitute?”
Maybe he was looking for a shemale.
Trying to get some Pohukaina?
I’m betting his customers are male.
If this was a female prostitute this is quite unexpected.
Look at the ages of these perverts! Good grief!!! 48, 49, 51 freakin years old?
There are a lot of cross dressing prostitutes in Hawaii. I saw a documentary about it and there was a lot of them. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if he was looking for a chick with a prick.
Was Titcomb Obama’s dealer in HS??
“What is he afraid of ? I’ll tell you what - the truth about his past and revelations about him and his good “best” friend Barry Obama.
I have nothing personal against a loser like Titicomb who ruined many young lives and I do have personal first-hand knowledge of many, many of Titcomb’s exploits from 1977 to 1990. From his drug using and dealing in high school thru the decade later where he was notorious in the Honolulu club scene and his hair-trigger drug-induced temper.
Since you like act big and profess to be one of the corrupt old-boy judiciary here in Hawai`i you might want to enlighten us on the inner world of Hawai`i law enforcement and judiciary during the years of 1960 to 1990 when corruption ran rampant.
By the way, these forums are not blogging you ignoramus.
Finally, the fact that Barry Obama maintains his friendship with Bobby Titcomb speaks a lot about Barry’s character especially since Barry has now had ample time to do a thorough backround check on Titcomb since my first post in August.
Not just Titcomb but many other of Barry’s enduring friendships with persons of highly questionable character have caused me to now cast my vote against him.”
News the MSM won’t use.
Just out of curiosity, what do you think the average age of men who solicit prostitutes to be?
Trash consorting with trash.
That was my first thought too -
"I don't see a pwoblem here."
Is that a rolled-up copy of Obama’s Birth Certificate in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?
LOL About these ages, actually! I mistakenly read that they were the prostitutes! LOL oops! That’s why I couldn’t figure out who would actually pick up a 51 year old dude. And pay.
Doesn't he have any normal friends?
Most likely one of the typical Hawaiian cross-dressing street-walking prostitutes. Notice that the liberal media is refusing to report the sex of the undercover cop.
I’d love to see how McGarrett and Five-0 would handle this.
This isn’t Titcomb’s first time on FR...
Titcomb was a “male” flight attendant?
“Titcomb, 42, now a commercial fisherman and Northwest Airlines flight attendant living in Kailua, remembers visiting Obama in Chicago shortly after his friend had moved there.”
There are a lot of strange items in that article. Obama saying he hasn’t liked ice cream since he worked at Baskin Robbins in high school. The spelling of Malia’s name. The use of his older daughter’s given name Natasha instead of Sasha. No mention of Occidental College. Etc.
It doesn't say and I was looking for more information on this.
Probably male,I mean the guy IS a friend of Obummer.
....arrested Robert Richard Titcomb, 49, of Waialua on suspicion of prostitution Monday night.
Obama’s close friend a MALE PROSTITUTE!
So, Larry Sinclair was lying? Probably not! lol
Plotting to do something unseemly to the caddy perhaps?
0bama's close friend arrested during prostitution sting Remember Bobby Titcomb?
It took a convoy of official SS vehicles for 0hbama to visit Bobby during Christmas in Hawaii.
At the time we wondered why it would take a dozen black oil-burning SUV's to drive a few miles up the road, and why didn't Bobby just drop by 0bama's $8,500 per night rented digs, instead. Surely the two incidents aren't connected in any way. Bobby is an old friend, and this is all a misunderstanding. ... Right?
Thanks, Brown Deer.
The smell gets even more foul.
I think this is Bobby Titcomb’s father. Nothing on Bobby’s sordid past but there is the “Hawaii Five-O!” connection :)
Frederick James Kealiimahiai Titcomb, a retired District Court judge and former Honolulu deputy prosecuting attorney, died Friday, March 10, 2000 in Honolulu.
President Obama provoked fresh outrage today after taking a 20-man motorcade to visit a childhood friend during his lavish Christmas holiday in Hawaii.
The 10-vehicle convoy drove the president and wife Michelle from his rental property in Kailua, across highways cleared of traffic and through a military community to reach Bobby Titcombs beachfront house.
Larry Sinclair. Male prostitute in Hawaii. Child slavery in Chicago. Gay men’s club? Once, maybe speculation. Twice, coincidence. THREE times....pattern. FOUR times, guilty as charged.
Laughing so hard I am snorting!!!!
