The temporary restraining order filed against a Honolulu Police Dept. major has been dropped.

Kristopher Aiana had filed a TRO against Maj. Ryan Borges after claiming to feel “threatened” and “harassed” during a phone conversation.

But during a hearing Wednesday morning, the 33-year-old said he never intended the case to get so much media attention, so he dropped the TRO.

“The case is over and if (Aiana) has any further allegations, I hope the court will use its wisdom and not issue any more unfounded temporary TROs just based on the allegations of just one side,” said Borges’ attorney, Richard Wurdeman.

Borges, a 31-year veteran of the department, had his gun and badge removed after the TRO was granted.

“Maj. Borges expressed to me that he’s just thankful for the overwhelming support from the community and also his family,” Wurdeman said.

Wurdeman says Borges doesn’t intend to speak with Aiana in the near future unless his job requires him to do so.

A HPD spokesperson says Maj. Borges’ status at the department remains unchanged. His police powers are restricted and the internal investigation is continuing.

KHON2 reached out to the police chief, but he had no comment.
