PGA champion Angel Cabrera – who won the Masters in 2009 – has been extradited to his home country, Argentina… where he is set to face assault charges against 3 different women.
The 51-year-old golf star – nicknamed “El Pato” – was arrested in Brazil in January after officials said he was considered a fugitive after he bailed out a meeting with prosecutors.
The women accusing Cabrera include 2 ex-girlfriends and his ex-wife.
As we previously reported, one of the women accused the golfer of hit her in the face, uttering threats and trying to run over him with his car in ’16.
Another woman, Cabrera’s ex-wife, Silva rivadero, also allegedly filed two charges against the golfer … including assault and threats.
Cabrera is already in custody in Argentina – and his trial is reportedly scheduled for July.
And, understand this… Cabrera’s defense isn’t that he didn’t attack the women, it’s that the incidents weren’t really that bad.
REALLY, THIS IS HIS DEFENSE!
Cabrera’s lawyer, Carlos Hairabedian, told TN Todo Noticias, “The accusations come from a long time ago … and he was not in jail because the facts attributed to him are insignificant. They are minor injuries.”
Cabrera won the US Open Tiger woods in 2007 and the Green Jacket in 2009 … and narrowly lost in the play-off against Adam scott at the 2013 Master.
