Illegal Camper Arrested On State Warrants, Park Charges

Haleakala National Park

National Park News

On February 16th, protection ranger James Mar contacted a group of seven visitors at the 10,000-foot summit of Haleakala for illegal camping and alcohol violations. During the contact, Mar learned that a member of the group, a 21-year-old Maui resident, had state warrants out against him. When Mar attempted to arrest him, he fled on foot into a closed area. Mar chased the man by vehicle and foot and was able to intercept him as he tried to cross a road. Mar pointed his taser at the man, which proved instrumental in effecting the arrest. The man was booked into the Maui Police Department jail on federal charges (interference and the camping and alcohol violations) as well as the state warrants.
