A Hawaii County police sergeant was arrested and charged with four offenses in connection with an early Thursday morning domestic abuse incident in Kapaau.
Marvin Troutman, 62, was charged with abuse of a family/household member and three counts of terroristic threatening. His bail was set at $4,000.
Troutman, a sergeant in charge of the Kona Traffic Enforcement Unit, has been placed on administrative leave while police initiated an internal administrative investigation.
Police responded to a 1:50 a.m. call to a home on Kynnersley Road, where it was reported that Troutman had pulled the hair of a 55-year-old woman and then threatened her and an 18-year-old man, police said.
Troutman reportedly threatened a responding 44-year-old police officer.
He was arrested and taken to the Kona police cellblock while detectives continued the investigation.
