A former Big Island resident is awaiting trial in Indonesia for a surfing incident that happened two years ago.
Hawaii News Now reports that Oahu resident Zack Moore was visiting 43-year-old Jordan Heurer in Indonesia two weeks ago when Heurer received a summons to speak with prosecutors. Moore says that conversation request turned into Heurer being suddenly arrested and imprisoned.
Heurer moved to Indonesia in 2000. He owns Kandui Villas, a luxury surf resort.
Friends, family, surfing colleagues and former resort guests are rallying to support him.
The arrest stems from an incident in May 2015 when Heurer and another surfer allegedly got into a fight. Hawaii News Now reports that Heurer filed a police report claiming the other man started the fight, but now could face attempted murder.
