A Maui police officer was arrested in California on Saturday for, according to the Maui Police Department, being “drunk in public.”
John Salomon of Pukalani, a three-year Maui police veteran, was arrested by the Newport Beach Police Department in Orange County, California.
His bail was set at $500.
The 39-year-old, at the time of arrest, was on unpaid administrative leave from the Maui Police Department due a previous arrest earlier in June.
Salomon was put in Maui police custody on June 11, 2015, on suspicion of driving under the influence of an intoxicant, where he then refused to submit a breath, blood or urine test. He was released a day after that arrest but was placed on administrative leave and stripped of his police credentials and firearm.
