HONOLULU — Honolulu police said Tuesday they had arrested a woman for driving under the influence of an intoxicant after she was observed driving the wrong way down a one-way street.
Police did not identify the woman but Hawaii News Now identified her as state Oahu Rep. Sharon Har.
Har’s legislative office told The Associated Press she would issue a statement on the matter. Har didn’t immediately respond to a text message seeking comment.
Honolulu police said they arrested a 52-year-old woman at 10:20 p.m. Monday near the intersection of Piikoi and Beretania Street. Honolulu Police Department spokesperson Sarah Yoro didn’t identify the individual arrested.
House Speaker Scott Saiki in a statement called the incident “unfortunate.”
“We are wishing Representative Har and her family the best right now,” he said.
Har is a Democrat who represents Kapolei and Makakilo. She was first elected to the state House in 2006. She is also an attorney specializing in real estate, land use and construction litigation.
