A federal police statement confirmed that an arrest had been made in Brazil on Thursday on suspicion of crimes committed between 2016 and 2020 in Argentina. Cabrera’s name wasn’t confirmed in the statement, but diplomats confirmed it was a golfer.

Consul Claudio Gutierrez said Cabrera was jailed in a Rio suburb pending extradition proceedings, with the golf star having been named on Interpol’s red list. The police confirmed that a 51-year-old Argentine was detained at an apartment in the Leblon district of Rio.

The player, known as “El Pato”, rose to prominence as his country’s top player in the 2000s, and captured the 2007 US Open and 2009 Masters.

Cabrera, whose career earnings total more than $14.5 million, is currently a member of the PGA’s Champions Tour, but hasn’t played since the PURE Insurance Championship in September 2020.
