(AP) —A Honolulu police sergeant is accused of domestic violence.
The Honolulu Police Department said Wednesday that Sgt. Darren Cachola was charged with misdemeanor abuse of a household member and two counts of harassment. He was being held on $1,500 bail, and the department said his police powers will be removed.
Police released Cachola from custody after he posted $1,500 bail.
Correction: An earlier version of this report inaccurately said the new arrest was in connection with a 2014 incident.
In an earlier case, Cachola was caught on video in 2014 punching his girlfriend in a Waipahu restaurant has been charged with domestic violence.
While the surveillance video showed Cachola pummeling his girlfriend, Cachola and the woman said they were horsing around.
