Arrests for underage drinking
Fifteen Maui residents were arrested early Tuesday morning for charges related to underage drinking at Castle Karaoke on Lower Main Street in Wailuku, police said.
The manager of the business, Yun Song, 48, of Wailuku was charged with promoting intoxicating liquor to a minor, and Jordan Dagulo, 21, of Kihei was charged with disorderly conduct and obstructing government operations. All others, Central Maui residents, were charged with prohibitions involving minors.
The incident occurred around midnight, when police received a call about underage drinking inside the business. Police arrived and found a group of people - ranging from 14 to 21 years old - celebrating a birthday party, police said. The adults were arrested.
Police said Dagulo tried to interfere with the arrests and was "highly belligerent" and "swearing at police."
Police said the location has been an "ongoing problem" in regards to underage drinking and patrol officers have responded to complaints, typically on the weekends.
