Bail tripled for suspect in Waianae standoff

A state judge tripled the bail to $3 million today of a convicted felon accused of shooting at police officers during a car chase.

Acting Circuit Judge Clarence Pacarro granted the prosecutor’s request to increase the bail for 34-year-old Frank Hampp after an Oahu grand jury returned an indictment charging Hampp with three counts of attempted first-degree murder and one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

The charges stem from an incident that started with a police pursuit on the H-1 Freeway on Saturday and ended when Hampp surrendered to police on Sunday following a more than 17-hour standoff at an apartment in Waianae.

Hampp had been wanted on a no-bail warrant for failing to show up in state court Jan. 9 for two felony cases. One case is for unauthorized entry into a dwelling. The other is for carrying a firearm without a permit and for being a felon in possession of a firearm. He has prior convictions for drug promotion, drug paraphernalia possession, escape, burglary and unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle.
