LIHU‘E — Kaua‘i Police have confirmed Kaua‘i Councilmember Arthur Brun was the driver of a Hyundai involved in a Feb. 7 collision on Kapa‘a Bypass Road in the vicinity of mile marker 5.

According to a Feb. 8 release from Kaua‘i Police, Brun was driving a 2010 gray Hyundai Geneisis and heading northbound when the vehicle crossed the center line and struck a 2006 white Ford F-150 head on that was traveling southbound.

    You mean to tell me that I am correct. Fame and popularity like superstars like Rock Johnson makes no money. Just the fame is good.

    What you failed to mention in your article was that Councilman Brun was ALREADY in trouble with the Kauai police for an incident in October where, after being pulled over, he took off, striking one of the officers. A grand jury indicted him for first degree assault and resisting an order to stop. Now he has a head-on collision with another car, injuring its occupants, AND is driving without insurance??!!

    Arthur Brun ought to immediately resign his councilman position. And if he doesn’t, he should be removed by the Kauai County Council.

    You would think a council member would have auto insurance and would have had license suspended after recent events. So, why is the previous incident of hit n’ run not mentioned in this article when there appears to be a pattern of behavior that is a threat to public safety!?! https://www.thegardenisland.com/2019/11/14/hawaii-news/councilmember-charged/

    A lot of people once supported the self proclaimed recovering addict. We all hope he works to better himself but kauai voters got it dead wrong by voting this guy into office. Does he Attend council meeting or is he only collecting checks?
    It should go without saying, show up do your part and give people hope. You shouldn’t be a danger and a liability to the People.

    Yikes, mAhalo Ke Akua the accident occurred and nothing fatal, however, i do understand THAT particular kind of accident trauma been there done that!

    STILL, I am of the opinion there is some kind of setup going down and they tagged Brun to play in whatever sidestep role is Under the table. I don’t know facts at the moment. It could be conspiracy, but it is doubtful the way things run with our corrupt fraudulent voted-in peoples including mayor picture ops with military!

    Our supposed “leaders”, are the criminals, especially our P.A. judiciary officers. I surely have my inquiries about all the different role-play that moves our county in the most obvious “in our faces” circumstance that says we are the u.s.a.!

    We are fighting city hall, which my dad said “no can fight city hall”. WATCH US! I am finishing up of from my USAF intel officer dads career box documents, that outlines the “noose placement around Hawaii neck” and thousands of lies america has told the world or the sad Hawaii generations, U.S. planned americanization OR it has screwed the truth and integrity of the NON corporate Hawaiian Kingdom Nation.

      Hmmmm, the terrible Federal government? Well, by the looks of the trash dump on Aliomanu Rd, with Abandoned cars, Tents, and no running water or sewer, that the “supposed” legitimate government of Hawaii isn’t doing much or making any effort to take care of the 36 acres of Hawaiian AG land on Aliomanu Rd… Or is this some conspiracy? Is the Federal government paying people, perhaps, to dump their garbage, live in tents and yurts, and use the ground as a toilet? Have you seen it? Check it out, it might be a major conspiracy of the Feds

      So Deb if you had been elected mayor you would also be one of the fraudulent, corrupt officials. Those 170 votes are the true indicator of your self induced lunacy and flights of fancy. The place between your ears must be a rocky place were no new seeds of thought can develop. Now let your insults begin.

    Driving w/o insurance? And he’s STILL on the council after the car chase from the police a few months back. Seems like he’s going to be heading to KCCC soon. I wonder if the council will rid themselves of him then? Won’t make much difference to Brun’s ‘contributions’ since he rarely attended any meetings, and then only to back up his cronies on a vote.

    Perhaps the connection lay in the tonight airing of DATELINE NBC ‘Doomsday Couple’. Why are these visitors not incarcerated for missplacing two children since september 2019!?

    Pay Attention, Kauai is no longer what it appear and 95% are transplants who have no clue of their surroundings. Is RICO in the house, we sure could use your assistance!

    This makes all Council Members look bad. It cheapens and destroys any public respect for their office!

    C’mon. Get rid of this guy. What an embarrassment for the county

    As a Kauai tax payer, I am furious that the council allows this man to continue collecting a paycheck from my money!

    He should resign or removed from office.

    “There appeared to be no indications of driver impairment”… was a blood test done or not?

    I’ve had enough of this BS! Our tax dollars at work? Time to clean it up!! Innocent people are getting hurt in more ways than one!!!!!

    Do you really think that the County Council would get rid of one of their own, one of the “good ‘ole boys”. They may be afraid that if they took action and upset him he might reveal some questionable activities that have been occurring in the past. Otherwise why, given the circumstances, haven’t they taken action to remove him from office? If we can impeach a president surely we can remove a council member. Council members should be held accountable for their actions. They are supposed to represent us. This one obviously doesn’t.

    There once was a County lawmaker
    Caught twice for being a lawbreaker
    Were drugs in his system…?
    Or maybe they missed ‘em…?
    Stop him before he’s a life taker
