Suspect who tried to swim away from police is charged

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 05:45 a.m. HST, May 01, 2012

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.

Should have let him go in the Ala Wai. Would be punishment enough.

8:11 was the time of the arrest. The part about not giving a home address is what's known as "parenthetical phrase". i do get that you were trying to be funny, but better luck next time.

The best thing HPD should have done was to shoot him, once he pull the knife, with a real gun instead of a stun gun. Save the government the cost of prosecuting him and providing him room and board at one of our prisons.

Should've let the guy enjoy his time in the Ala Wai. Once he gets to the sides with the water rats running along the walls to give up, push him back in.
