HPD Sergeant Arrested in Domestic Abuse Incident
A sergeant with the Hawai’i Police Department was arrested early Thursday morning and later charged with four offenses stemming from a domestic abuse case in Kapa’au.
Police responded to a home on Kynnersley Road at 1:50 a.m., where 62-year-old Marvin Kelly Troutman reportedly pulled the hair of a 55-year-old woman and threatened her and an 18-year-old man.
Upon officer arrival, Troutman reportedly threatened a 44-year-old police officer.
Troutman was arrested and taken to the Kona police cellblock while detectives from the Area II Juvenile Aid Section, which is responsible for domestic abuse cases, continued the investigation.
Later Thursday, Troutman was charged with abuse of a family/household member and three counts of terroristic threatening. His bail was set at $4,000.
Police have initiated an internal administrative investigation into the incident, in addition to the criminal investigation. Troutman, who is a sergeant in charge of the Area II Traffic Enforcement Unit, has been placed on administrative leave.
