Early Sunday morning (March 24) just after 4:00 a.m., Hilo patrol officers found Fernandez on the side of the road fronting a residence on Ahuna Road.  He was taken into custody without incident.

Just before noon, he was charged with revocation of supervised release under the strength of a recently issued bench warrant.  He is being held without bail at the Hilo cellblock pending his initial court appearance scheduled for Tuesday (March 28).
