Colorado man arrested, returns home after violating 14-day quarantine on Maui

A Colorado man was arrested on Maui today for violating Hawaii’s mandatory 14-day quarantine.

The 23-year-old flew into Maui Friday without a negative COVID-19 test and was required to begin his 14-day quarantine.

He was supposed to quarantine at Kahului Hotel, but when he was contacted today by the quarantine call center, he said he had to check out of the hotel and had nowhere to spend the rest of his quarantine, so he was arrested.

He chose to return to Colorado, and was transported to the airport by police.
