Robert Allenby was arrested at an Illinois casino shortly after missing the cut at the John Deere Classic.

According to a WQAD report, Allenby was arrested around 2:30 a.m. Saturday outside Jumer's Casino in Rock Island, Ill. He was booked into the Rock Island County Jail shortly after 4 a.m. and was reportedly charged with disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing. According to the arrest report, Allenby's bond was set at $1,500.

A representative from the Rock Island County Jail confirmed to that Allenby had been released from jail as of Sunday afternoon. Allenby's agent did not return a request for comment.

It's another late-night incident for Allenby, who was robbed and beaten at the 2015 Sony Open. A Hawaii man ultimately pleaded guilty to charges of identity theft after illegally using Allenby's credit cards and was sentenced to five years in prison.

The robbery was followed by an on-course spiral for Allenby, 45, who has missed the cut in 34 of 41 starts since last year's incident. That includes 20 missed cuts in 22 starts this season, where the Aussie's best result is a T-63 finish at the RBC Canadian Open.

Allenby missed the cut by three shots after rounds of 70-72 this week at TPC Deere Run.
