Kevin Kolenda, 55, of Norwalk, Conn., has been booked into the King County Jail. He was flown to Seattle from Connecticut under guard Thursday, according to a release issued Friday by the Washington state insurance commissioner.
Kolenda specializes in insuring golf tournament hole-in-one prizes, and similar allegations have been made against Kolenda or his business in numerous other states, including Montana, Ohio, Georgia, California, New York, Hawaii, Alabama, Massachusetts, Florida, Connecticut and North Carolina.
Police charging documents from Washington accuse Kolenda of failing to pay prize money when several Seattle-area golfers connected on elusive aces.
Kolenda is expected to be arraigned Monday at King County Superior Court in Seattle.
