Man taken to hospital after stolen vehicle located

Around 5 p.m. yesterday, police attempted to locate a stolen vehicle at a Waimanalo residence. Upon seeing the first officer arrive, two males immediately fled the area. The officer and a private citizen were able to locate one of the males, who fought off and resisted attempts to detain him. Shortly after being brought under control, the male became unresponsive and resuscitation efforts were initiated. He was transported to the hospital where he remains in critical condition.

The Professional Standards Office (formerly Internal Affairs) has opened an investigation into the incident. The officer involved has 26 years of service and is on administrative leave.
