An employee of the Maui Police Department was arrested on Tuesday for a list of alleged offenses including harassment and impersonating a law enforcement officer in the 2nd degree.

Charles B. Barrett, 49, is a 10-year employee of the Maui Police Department, having served as an Information Systems Analyst since May 8, 2001.

The arrest stems from an incident on May 5, 2010 in which Barrett and an unnamed motorist were involved in a confrontation.  Other alleged offenses include reckless driving, and 2nd degree unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle.

Barrett turned himself in at the Wailuku Police Station at around 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, January 3, 2012, and was processed without incident.


He was released and a court date has been set for Monday, February 6, 2012, in Second Circuit Court.
