[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

 

A 23-year-old state inmate who failed to show up for his scheduled pickup in a work furlough program was found intoxicated Friday night at a Waipahu park.

Martha Torney, deputy director of the Department of Public Safety, said today that the man failed to show up for his scheduled 7:45 p.m. pickup at Patsy T. Mink Central Oahu Regional Park.

A decision was made to return the other inmates to Waiawa Correctional Facility, then send out two adult correctional officers to look for him, she said.

The inmate was later found intoxicated by police and was taken to Pali Momi Medical Center.

According to dispatch reports, the man had alcohol on his breath, slurred speech, and was vomiting. He admitted to drinking alcohol, but didn’t say how much. He also had low blood sugar. 

He was back at Waiawa at 11:52 p.m., Torney said.
