A woman was arrested on Mauna Kea Sunday after she allegedly rammed her car into a state ranger’s vehicle.
The woman allegedly drove up to a ranger and two sheriffs at 2:30 a.m. and argued with them for not allowing her to ascend the mountain, according to a statement from the state Attorney General’s Office.
She then “advanced her car” into the ranger’s vehicle, causing minor damage, the statement said.
No one was injured.
She was arrested on suspicion of criminal property damage.
The ranger was with the Office of Mauna Kea Management.
Mauna Kea has been the scene of recent protests against the proposed Thirty Meter Telescope.
