Man arrested for attempted murder after allegedly driving into crowd

By Star-Advertiser Staff

A 29-year-old Aiea man is facing several counts of attempted murder after he allegedly drove his vehicle into a crowd of people in Chinatown, injuring two on Saturday morning, police said.

The man was arrested on Pauahi Street at 2:12 a.m. for investigation of first-degree attempted murder, two counts of second-degree attempted murder, operating a vehicle under the influence of an intoxicant, and fleeing the scene of a crash.

Police said two people, a 35-year-old man and a 27-year-old woman, sustained non-life threatening injuries about 1:34 a.m.

Nearby workers said the incident began with a fight in the parking lot at the corner of Nuuanu Avenue and Beretania Street. Remnants of the clash remained Saturday afternoon, including two panels of a wooden fence that were knocked over and tire tracks cutting across a dirt median, leading toward Nuuanu.

Witnesses identified the suspect, police said.

At 1:34 am? color me surprised that none of thse things were going on in Chinatown at the time. good thing he did this in a parking lot...if he did it on Hotel St, he could have killed or injured scores of sleeping homeless on the sidewalk.
