A 42-year-old suspect who swam away from police for about two hours in the Ala Wai Harbor after an officer shot him with a stun gun was charged with assaulting a police officer.
Russell Clock, who didn't give police a home address, is also charged with five counts of first-degree terroristic threatening, criminal trespassing and resisting arrest.
Police said Clock jumped into the Ala Wai Harbor after being shot with a stun gun Saturday night.
Officers responded to a call about a man trespassing on a boat about 6:20 p.m. When they arrived, they saw the man on the boat and told him to disembark. Instead of complying, the man brandished a knife and threatened to kill the officers, police said.
One of the officers used his stun gun on the man, police said.
The suspect then jumped into the water and tried to swim away. Officers arrested the man when he got out of the water at about 8:11 p.m.
Police said he continued to resist capture by kicking an officer.
