Tabree Pea

Hawai‘i Island police have arrested and charged 34-year-old Tabree Pea, of Hilo, with several offenses following a domestic violent incident that resulted in a man being stabbed in their home on Monday morning.
The charges against Pea stem from an incident reported shortly before 9:30 a.m. Oct. 24, when South Hilo patrol officers responded to an unknown disturbance at the couple’s Puueo Street residence. Officers found a man bleeding from his upper left leg. He told the officers he had been stabbed by Pea during an argument in their residence, according to a police news release.

The police did not reveal the identify of the man who was stabbed, or his condition.

Pea ran towards the downtown Hilo area. She was located a short time later near the Hilo Library and arrested without further incident. During the arrest, a Zip-lock bag with a crystal-like substance was located on the ground next to Pea and a glass smoking pipe with residue was in her possession. The substance and residue in the smoking glass pipe tested presumptive positive for methamphetamines.
At 2 p.m. on Oct. 25, after conferring with the County Prosecutor’s Office, detectives charged Pea with second-degree assault, abuse of a family household member and third-degree promotion of a dangerous drug. Her bail is set at $5,000. 
Pea remains in police custody pending her initial court appearance scheduled for Oct. 26 in Hilo District Court.
