A 49-year-old homeless man allegedly threatened a police officer in Waikiki early Saturday morning and was arrested.

Police said the suspect brandished a dangerous instrument and threatened to kill the offer at about 12:30 a.m.

Police arrested him ten minutes later at Paki Community Park on Leahi Avenue  on suspicion of first-degree terroristic threatening, several drug offenses, violating park rules and an outstanding contempt warrant.

The officer was in the process of citing the man for violating the city’s park closure law when the incident escalated, police said.
