Honolulu police have charged a 58-year-old homeless man in connection with the beating death of longtime Honolulu sportscaster John Noland.
Mark Coleman was charged Saturday with manslaughter after police confirmed via security video that he and Noland had been involved in an altercation that ended with Noland being struck several times then falling to the pavement and hitting his head.
Noland, 60, was found unresponsive on the sidewalk fronting 1153 Maunakea St. on June 9. He died June 15 at The Queen’s Medical Center, where he had been on life support.
Coleman was arrested on June 14 on suspicion of second-degree attempted murder and two outstanding warrants after he was located a few blocks from where the fatal encounter happened.
He is being held in lieu of $300,000 bail.
