Nightclub owner charged with assaulting Pro Bowler is released

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 01:14 p.m. HST, Jan 28, 2013

Nightclub owner Michael Miske Jr. is out on bail after he was charged Sunday with allegedly assaulting Washington Redskins tackle Trent Williams at a Restaurant Row nightclub early Saturday morning.

Miske, 38, was arrested Saturday at the Honolulu Police Department headquarters on Beretania Street and charged Sunday with second-degree assault. Police said he posted $250,000 bail after he was charged. Miske is expected to be arraigned in Circuit Court later this week.

According to police, Miske struck Williams, who was in Hawaii for Sunday’s Pro Bowl, on the head with a dangerous instrument, reportedly a Champagne bottle, during a fight. The incident took place at Miske’s M Nightclub at Restaurant Row.

Williams was unable to participate in the game due to his injuries.

Miske, who is also the owner and president of Kamaaina Termite and Pest Control, has an extensive criminal history that includes 10 convictions — six for felonies — dating back to 1993.

Correction, it was in 2006. http://www.courts.state.hi.us/docs/opin_ord/ica/2011/feb/ica28856mopada.pdf. Excerpt "Later that day, Miske and two other adults chased Steven, who was on foot, with their vehicle through Kalihi. The Honolulu Police Department and paramedics were called to assist Steven. Steven also filed a police report against Miske for reckless endangerment. On May 6, 2006, Steven received a message from a friend who relayed a threat from Miske to not press charges. Steven then filed a police report against Miske for terroristic threatening in the first degree. On May 23, 2006, the District Court of the First Circuit granted Appellants' Petition For Injunction Against Harassment against Miske."

If the owner of this night club, with a liquor license, is a convicted felon then why he is allowed to hold a liquor license? Issuing a liquor license to convicted felon, or to a business in which the felon has a 25% controlling influence, used to be prohibited by the Hawaii Revised Statutes. Wasn't the Honolulu Liquor Commission supposed to clean up its act?

I wonder how a guy like this can own a nightclub and a termite company. Somethings up with him. I believe there's more to it than that. He does have insurance and is up for a law suit. I wonder what caused him to hit the other guy with a bottle in his bar.

But not enough SomeBody to get him out of $17,000 in Fed EPA fines, OSHA fines and 10 convictions and 6 felonies. He was worried about bad press when the EPA fines were released and in the news that he spent $10,000 on dog food when the nalo puppy milll story came out the same time as his fines to buy positive publicity. I wonder how he'll buy this bad publicity off this time? Not only wrong move BUT charges of AS2 to a REAL SomeBody? Quarter Million dollar bond? Interesting to see his arraignment this week. This should take him down a couple of notches and hopefully get him some cell time during the criminal and empty his pocket and loss of business during the civil. And yes, he's into da BLING. He bragged about a $12,000 bulldog he bought and a $100,000 Porsche a couple of years back. Now he may have to sell them to keep pace with attorney and court fees :)
