Man throws board at officers

Advertiser Staff

A 39-year-old Waikiki man was arrested last night after he allegedly taunted and threw a wooden board through a closed window at police officers.

Police were sent to the man's Ala Moana Boulevard apartment about 6:30 p.m. on a domestic abuse call-back. Police had been at the apartment earlier, but were called back after the alleged abuser returned.

Police said the man they were seeking refused to come out of the apartment, but they eventually took him into custody and arrested him on suspicion of first-degree criminal property damage and first-degree assault against a law enforcement officer.

Police investigating death of man in car

Police are investigating the death of a 36-year-old man who was found in the back seat of a car parked at Kailua Beach late Saturday night.

Police said the man had gone to a concert at the park and was drinking heavily before he passed out in the back of the car.

He was found about 11:20 p.m. when police were checking on cars still in the parking lot. Officers were able to awaken a man in the front seat and attempted to wake the man in the back seat.

When he did not respond, officers performed CPR on the man in the back seat and called an ambulance, which took him to Castle Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Suspects arrested for threatening, shooting man

Two La'ie men, both 23, were arrested yesterday morning after they allegedly threaten to kill, and shot at, a 52-year-old man.

The older man said he got into an argument with the men at about 7:30 a.m. He said one shot at him with a rifle, but missed, and the other man pointed a handgun at him and threatened to shoot him.

Police were called and the older man identified the two younger men.

The man with the handgun was arrested on suspicion of first-degree terroristic threatening and the man with the rifle was arrested on suspicion of attempted second-degree murder.

Man allegedly dents car, attacks officer

A 30-year-old man with no local address was arrested yesterday morning after he allegedly pounded a dent into the hood of a car and assaulted a police officer who was attempting to question him.

A 25-year-old woman told police she stopped for a traffic light at the corner of Ward Avenue and Kapi'olani Boulevard at about 8:45 a.m. when the man approached her car and punched the hood, causing a dent.

The woman flagged down a passing police officer, who located the suspect nearby and told him to sit on the curb. Police said instead of doing as he was told, the suspect unexpectedly attacked the officer, who eventually subdued the man.

The officer, 41, was treated and released at Straub Clinic and Hospital for scratches to his head and face. The man was arrested on suspicion of first-degree assault on a law enforcement officer and fourth-degree criminal property damage was taken to the Queen's Medical Center, where he was treated for cuts and scrapes on his arm.

Officer hit with flower pot during domestic disturbance

Police arrested an 18-year-old Kailua man and were searching for a second man following a fracas early yesterday morning in Kailua.

Officers were sent to a Kailua home on a domestic disturbance call about 1:20 a.m. The first officer who arrived heard a loud argument at the rear of the home and was confronted by a 39-year old man, who demanded that the officer get off of the property.

The same man then threw two flower pots at the officer, striking him on the top of the head, and punched the officer in the mouth.

While the officer was trying to defend himself, the 18-year-old man came from the rear of the house and punched the officer in the head twice, police said.

Additional officers arrived and arrested the younger man for suspicion of first-degree assault upon a law enforcement officer. The older man was able to evade arrest and was being sought yesterday.

The officer who was hit with the flower pots and punched was treated and released at Castle Medical Center for minor injuries.

The cashier suspected the check was forged and that the ID card had been altered and called 911.

Police arrested the woman on suspicion of second-degree forgery and second-degree identity theft.
