[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

 

HILO >> West Hawaii Today is reporting that Big Island Mayor Billy Kenoi and state Rep. Jerry Chang were participants in a loud drinking party broken up by police this month.

Kenoi told the newspaper in yesterday’s editions he was at the party and alcohol was served to celebrate the end of the annual Merrie Monarch Festival.

He said festival organizers publicly announced the party, and everyone was invited.

Hawaii County police responded to a loud noise complaint in early morning of May 1 at Aunty Sally’s Luau Hale, part of the county park complex near downtown Hilo. No arrests were made.

South Hilo Patrol Capt. Robert Wagner said he couldn’t locate an alcohol permit for the location.

Wagner said police wouldn’t treat the incident differently just because the mayor was there.
