Irked concert goer arrested after cell-phone faceoff

Advertiser Staff

A 39-year-old Kapahulu man was arrested at Blaisdell Center Thursday night after he allegedly pushed a woman, took her cell phone and walked away with it.

Police were told that the man and woman, 19, were attending a concert when the man got upset at the woman for continuously text-messaging during the performance.

Concert ushers saw the commotion and detained the man until police arrived.

The man was arrested on suspicion of second-degree robbery and harassment.
