A Pahoa woman was arrested for the second day in a row atop Mauna Kea.

According to the Hawai’i Police Department, Cynthia Marlin was arrested by South Hilo patrol officers following a 9:18 p.m. call Monday.  Officers arrived to the Mauna Kea Access Road to find the woman yelling. She was allegedly disruptive to peaceful protesters and briefly removed her clothing.

Marlin was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct at 10:30 p.m. Her bail was set at $1,000.

HPD says Marlin was held at the Hilo police cellblock overnight and is scheduled to make her initial court appearance Tuesday afternoon.

The incident follows an arrest by State sheriffs early Sunday morning. She was charged with criminal property damage and obstruction after she used her car to run into an Office of Mauna Kea Management Ranger’s vehicle. HPD processed Marlin on the charges and she was released from custody the same day after she posted $500 bail.
