National Park Rangers Arrest Man at Hosmer Grove Campground

On Tuesday, August 27, Haleakala National Park Service Rangers arrested an adult male at the Hosmer Grove campground on suspicion of reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct, and vandalism. Park rangers responded at approximately 6 pm after a report of an assault and possible gunfire.  Upon arrival Rangers encountered a female victim who alleged that a male companion had threatened her and caused extensive damage to her vehicle, rendering it inoperable. After a brief search, the male suspect was found having fled a short distance away.  Further investigation also revealed that the initial report of gunfire was incorrect.  The female victim was transported by ambulance to Maui Memorial Hospital and discharged without serious injury later that evening.  The male suspect was transported and held at the Maui Police Department and later released pending a future court date.
