Charges against former members of DUI team are dismissed

By Star-Advertiser staff


Charges against two former members of the Hono­lulu Police Department’s DUI checkpoint unit have been dismissed a little more than a month after they pleaded no contest to falsifying arrest reports in order to pad overtime earnings.

Christopher and Patrick Bugarin pleaded no contest Aug. 7 to one charge each of tampering with a government record.

State Circuit Judge Edward Kubo told the brothers if they each paid a $500 fine and stayed out of trouble for three months, he would dismiss the charges.

On Wednesday the Bugarins asked Kubo to end their deferral periods early. Kubo agreed.
