Man who filed TRO against HPD major speaks out

Kristopher Aiana, 33, says he had no idea that filing a temporary restraining order against his ex-girlfriend’s father would draw so much attention.

“We had a conflict on the phone. It was a disagreement,” Aiana said.

In the TRO filing, Aiana said Honolulu Police Maj. Ryan Borges called him on Dec. 28, 2013, and told him that he didn’t want him with his daughter.

The two men spoke again on the phone, but this time, Aiana said he recorded the conversation.

In the report, Aiana told Maj. Borges that he felt “threatened” and “harassed.”

According to the report, Borges told Aiana, “Where do you want to meet so that I can beat you up?”

“Can you tell us what was in the recording?” KHON2 asked Aiana.

“Let’s just say, it was [an] aggressive communication,” Aiana said.

Aiana dated the Major’s daughter for nine years and the two have a 6-year-old son.

Aiana also has a lengthy criminal past including assault, theft, and abuse of a family or household member.

“Have you ever hit the major’s daughter?” KHON2 asked Aiana.

“In the past, I’ll be totally honest. I was an abusive person. And I cannot lie. I’ll come straight forward and say the truth. But that was four years ago,” Aiana said.

“As a father, can you see where Maj. Borges is coming from and why he’s so protective of his daughter?” KHON2 asked Aiana.

“Oh yes, yes. I totally understand,” Aiana said.

Aiana says he’s now turned his life around, and has stayed clean and sober for more than a year.

“I’m trying to move forward in my life and be a better father for my kids. So in order to do so, I have to draw these boundaries. I don’t need to be harassed by nobody,” Aiana said.

He hasn’t spoken with Maj. Borges since the TRO was filed, but hopes to get the matter resolved as soon as possible.

“I don’t want to take his job away. He’s been there a long time. About 30 years that I know of. I would like him to keep his job. This is not a personal vendetta between me and him,” Aiana said.

We also contacted Maj. Borges wanting to hear his side of the story. He responded in a text message saying, “I am unable to make any comments until after the court hearing.”

A hearing on the TRO is set for next week.
