Posted Tuesday, October 15th 2013 @ 1pm

Honolulu Police Department lieutenant Colin Wong, a 27-year HPD veteran who was arrested for driving under the influence of an intoxicant in Waikiki will be in court October 25 on drunk driving and refusing to submit to a breathalizer and blood-alcohol test. He was arrested March 30 near the Modern Honolulu Hotel after he allegedly hit a parked car. He was reportedly off-duty at the time.Both offenses are petty misdemeanors. Wong remains on restricted duty.  If convicted, he faces a yearlong revocation of his driver's license, up to 30 days in jail and up to a thousand-dollar fine. The case was dismissed in September by District Judge David Lo without prejudice because the arresting police officerwas unavailable to testify. Under state law, the trial has to be held within six months from the time of an arrest or indictment, but city prosecutors quickly refiled the charges after the hearing.
