Ewa Beach man out on bail in handgun-firing case

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 06:24 a.m. HST, Sep 01, 2013

The 21-year-old man accused of firing a handgun into the ground Wednesday during an argument in Waimanalo has been released after posting bail.

According to police records, Brandon Abiva was released around 2 p.m. Friday on $35,000 bail. 

Police arrested Abiva shortly after the Wednesday afternoon incident and later charged him with first-degree terroristic threatening and first-degree reckless endangering.

The Ewa Beach man was one of three motorcyclists who were involved in a traffic incident on the H-3 freeway Wednesday afternoon that prompted a woman motorist to call family members, who followed the motorcyclists to Waimanalo.

In Waimanalo, one of the woman's relatives, a 33-year-old man, got involved in a verbal argument on the street with Abiva, police said. The motorcyclist allegedly pulled a handgun out of his backpack and threatened to shoot the man. 

Police spotted Abiva shortly after the 4 p.m. incident on his motorcycle stopped in traffic on Kalanianaole Highway near Keolu Drive and apprehended him as he was attempting to flee the scene on foot.

Probably Eldert's relatives. It seems that this state thinks it is ok to chase someone down and assault someone.

this guy is on probation for 5 years and is out on bail????? what kind of justice system do we have here? it will be 3 years before he goes to court on this charge, and probably get a few more years on probation. you have to kill at least 20 people here to get prison time.

His bail was pretty low considering that he is an ex-felon carrying a handgun. This just highlights what is wrong with our system. When an ex-felon gets no time in prison but instead gets probation for robbery and then gets let out on a low bail for gun violence as an ex-felon something is wrong. This guy either has family with pull withing the judicial system or has nine lives. This is a miscarriage of justice and would wonder what he will receive out of all of this.

Why is everyone only looking at Abiva? What about the woman and her family? For one thing, she had to be talking on the phone while driving to keep her family members informed to where the bikers were. Secondly, I'm sure the family member had plans to kick Abiva's butt. Shouldn't that family member get in trouble for threatening as well? BTW, to the person that was trying to compare this incident to Elderts, not even close! Abiva would have been more like Deedy but instead Abiva had brains enough not to shoot to kill. He shot to the ground not to the woman's family member. Imagine if Abiva did shoot and killed that woman's family member. I bet Abiva would not be able to get away with saying that he was defending himself.
