A man who sped away from police after allegedly hitting a woman with a car near Kalena and Kress Streets in Lihu’e at about 12:45 p.m. Friday afternoon had a temporary restraining order served against him later in the day.
According to the Kauai Police Department, the incident started as a domestic dispute between the woman and Chad Ishii, 28, of Lawa’i. The woman’s foot was run over by a vehicle.
Kaua’i Fire Department Acting Battalion Chief Michael Andrade said that the woman declined medical treatment after first responders applied an ice pack to her leg. She was released from the scene by medics from American Medical Response.
Police were not available to verify whether Ishii was arrested and the KPD did not issue a statement explaining the incident.
At about 2:45 p.m. Friday, Judge Murashige of the district of the Fifth Circuit’s Family Court granted a temporary restraining order against Ishii. A hearing for a protective order will be held Jan. 13. The TRO is believed to be the first one granted in 2003 according to case numbers listed on the Hawaii State Judiciary Web site.
