CRAIG T. KOJIMA/ MAY 19, 2015

Hugh Jones, supervising deputy attorney general of the Tax and Charities Division of the state Department of the Attorney General, speaks at a news conference.

Deputy Attorney General Hugh R. Jones, the state’s leading authority on the regulation of thousands of local charities and trusts, was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence of an intoxicant on the H-3 freeway Thursday morning.

Jones, 56, posted $500 bail, and a court hearing on the charge will be held Oct. 3.

The arrest occurred at 8:30 a.m. on a westbound lane of the H-3 tunnel.

The attorney general’s office today said it had no comment on Jones’ arrest.

Jones supervises the AG’s Tax and Charities Division, which provides regulatory oversight for public charities, charitable trusts and private foundations. The division enforces Hawaii’s charitable solicitation law and provides legal services to the Department of Taxation.

    At 8:30 a.m.? Wow.

  2. HIE says:

    This is the idiot who backed up the H3 yesterday! He was pulled over in the tunnel well before 8:30 am and caused a major morning commute traffic jam. Passing by him and the two solo bike cops, you could see he was acting in a very beligerent manner.

    @830 am in the morning…does he have to go to work? working while intoxicated?…hmmmmm

  4. bobbob says:

    holy crap, must have been pulling an all nighter.

  5. akkman says:

    Yeah, how does that happen that someone gets a DUI on a weekday commuter traffic morning? How is that possible? And why was he drinking so early in the morning? His driving must have been horrific to get pulled over during that time frame.

  6. Marauders_1959 says:

    Definitely not a role model for the AG’s subordinates.
    His leadership effectiveness will be adversely impacted.

  7. Kailuadad says:

    Should say: “suspected DUI”.

    We all forget that just because one is charged with DUI it doesn’t mean they were DUI. I’m always skeptical of these articles because I’ve known people who never touched a drop, blew clean and still got charged – although eventually dismissed – with DUI.

  8. SomebodyElse says:

    How is it they can publish this, but not the “DUI” list that Coach “Skippa” Diaz was on? Suddenly after coach Diaz’ arrest, it was not legal, but this is? I thought it was an invasion of privacy since they weren’t convicted, only arrested. I hope this means they bring back the line-up photos. That was awesome looking for friends and acquaintances.

    He’ll make AG in the next 6 months!

    I’ve played early morning golf with guys that were on a bender the night before. They smelled like a distillery for hours until they sweated it out.
    I imagine some guys would probably still blow over on the test the next morning.

      Heavy drinkers can do that. I am not talking about local style drinking. I am talking the bourbon and scotch drinkers. I was one of those. Good thing I never got pulled over after a good night. I knew I would blow over the limit easy. Have not had a drink in over 10 years.

  11. iwanaknow says:

    As Wiki would say “Don’t drink and drive”.

    Brandy, Kahlua and milk…..Breakfast of Champions

    Please. Immediate termination without discussion

  14. Mr Mililani says:

    And this guy was on his way to work? Fire the bum! Oh wait. He works for the government.

      Hugh Jones has done more for Hawaii than most of us can dream of.

      • T_H_G says:

        Exactly. I’m with Hugh. Not really sure what happened. If he’s alcoholic, I and others will be supportive of him getting help and treatment. Hugh’s a wonderful, kind hearted man who truly has done so much for Hawaii. He’s the type of friend you both value his intelligence but also enjoy hanging out to just chill with. He’s loyal and loving. I feel so terrible, for all of us really, that this incident has occurred. But again, I hope he gets the help and I and others will be there for him, as he has always been for us.

    Hugh Jones is the Corrupt Attorney Katherine Lloyd’s husband. Hugh Jones should be kept in the slammer for aiding and abetting stealing inheritance money and ripping off the elderly, along with Attorney Nancy Budd and his wife.
