 An incident took place on, (March 08), on Ali’i Drive, in which a pickup truck was observed by patrol officers traveling south near Magic Sands Beach at a high rate of speed, and was disregarding traffic laws. Upon a successful traffic stop, officer’s contacted the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle, later identified as Mundon. Officers requested the proper documents, and information from the driver, which were refused.

Based on his behavior, and refusal to comply, officers requested the driver to exit the vehicle, in which the driver refused. As officers began to open the door to remove the driver, he then placed the vehicle in drive and began to speed forward with one of the officer’s arms still within the vehicle, and three officers were directly fronting the vehicle.
