Police officer injured during arrest of bar fight suspect

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 08:13 a.m. HST, Sep 24, 2012

A Honolulu police officer was treated for minor injuries at a local hospital Saturday night after a man pushed an officer, assaulted another, and two additional suspects tried to prevent the officers from arresting the man, police said.

Police responded to a bar in the Keeaumoku area around 11 p.m. Saturday following an alleged assault that involved one of the three suspects, a 29-year-old Honolulu man, police said.

The suspect fled the scene, so witnesses provided police with a description of the suspect's vehicle. Police located him a short distance away at Keeaumoku Street and Wilder Avenue.

While two officers were conducting an investigation, a 34-year-old Nuuanu man allegedly pushed one of them and assaulted the other. The 29-year-old assault suspect and a 28-year-old Liliha woman then attempted to stop the officers from arresting him by pushing the officers away, police said. 

All three suspects were arrested after a brief struggle, and only one of the officers was treated for injuries, police said.

The 29-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of two counts of harassment and one count each of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest; the 34-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer, harassment and resisting arrest; and the 28-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of harassment and resisting arrest, according to police records.

Attacking a police officer should be punished more severely. Forced labor chain gang, because such agressors proof by their actions that they are able bodied.

I am amazed that culprits out here beat up on officers of the law and are not penalized heavily. Bizarre.

look, we've got strip clubs up and down Kapiolani and Keeaumoku where young guys can go to redline their testosterone and alcohol levels...then we hook them up when they get aggressive. Makes no sense.

Stupid is as stupid does. Alcohol and its subtle influence on the weak minded males and female in this case. All losers, who do not know how to control their intake of liquor. Throw the book at them and throw away the keys.

I remember Honolulu back in the day if you assaulted an officer...you would have gotten a beating that would have sent you to the hospital. Now days these thugs dont seem to fear anything and are quick to cry police brutality.
