HPD lieutenant arrested for alleged DUI

A Honolulu Police Department lieutenant was one of dozens of motorists arrested for operating a vehicle under the influence of a intoxicant at the start of the Good Friday long weekend.

Lt. Colin Wong, who serves in HPD’s specialized services division, was arrested in Waikiki around 2:30 a.m. on Saturday.

He was released after posting $1,000 in bail.

Back in 2000, Wong received a six-month demotion after he was caught on camera putting his arm around fellow police officer Clyde Arakawa soon after Arakawa had been involved in a fatal motor vehicle collision on the Pali Highway. Arakawa, who was drunk at the time of the crash, was later convicted of manslaughter in the death of 19-year-old Dana Ambrose.
