A man who made national headlines when he took a news cameraman hostage 21 years ago is back behind bars.

Ulysses Kim, 48, was arrested in Waipahu on Monday for auto theft, terroristic threatening, and a firearms violation.

In Aug. 1992, Kim took a television cameraman hostage on Round Top Drive in Makiki while on the run from police.

Police shot Kim and arrested him.

He was convicted and sentenced to 20 years in prison in 1994. He was later released then arrested again in 2007 for failing a drug test. He was also arrested last year for breaking into a car.

Kim has 10 previous convictions.

He has not yet been charged for his latest crimes.
