Man apparently died in parked car

Advertiser Staff

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 passing 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 awaken the man in the back seat.

When he did not respond, officers performed CPR and called an ambulance.

It took him to Castle Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.


Two La'ie men, both 23, were arrested Sunday 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 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.

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.


Police arrested an 18-year-old Kailua man and were searching for a second man after a fracas early Sunday 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 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 on suspicion of first-degree assault on a law enforcement officer. The older man fled and was being sought.

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


A 30-year-old man was arrested Sunday morning after he allegedly pounded a dent into the hood of a car and attacked a police officer who was trying to question him.

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

The woman flagged down a passing police officer, who found 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 at Straub Clinic and Hospital for scratches to his head and face, and was released. The suspect was held on suspicion of assault on a law enforcement officer.
