Bobby Titcomb, 49, was among four men arrested in a Monday night sting, for soliciting sex from an undercover officer in Honolulu.
Titcomb attended Honolulu's prestigious Punahou School with Obama, and has remained a close friend over the years.
A familiar face in Obama's Hawaii entourage, Titcomb has hosted the First Family and staffers at day-long barbeques at his North Shore beachfront home, played rounds of golf with the president, and even accompanied Obama when the then President-Elect spread his grandmother’s ashes off the cliffs of Oahu.
Titcomb was released after posting $500 bail, and is expected to appear in court next month for the charge that is considered a misdemeanor, according to reports.
