Man arrested after allegedly hurting officer
A Honolulu police officer injured her right hand Friday during a traffic stop in Wahiawa when the male driver allegedly drove off, momentarily trapping the officer’s hand in the driver’s window, police said.
The driver, 40, was arrested Saturday on suspicion of first-degree assault on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest, and for an outstanding retake warrant. The traffic stop occurred Friday when the officer learned the driver had a warrant. The driver allegedly accelerated while the officer was trying to arrest him, trapping the officer’s hand.
