A 30-year-old Mt. View man was arrested and charged for two counts of terroristic threatening, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and two counts of assault on a police officer following a disturbance at the Hilo Airport this past Sunday (November 10).

Hawaiʻi Island Police were called to a disturbance at the Hilo International Airport at about 3:00 PM involving an irate male. Police learned that Dean Padamada was upset after landing at the airport and discovering that his luggage never arrived.

According to reports, Padamada began to throw pamphlets and create a disturbance over the luggage issue. When asked to settle down by Airport Staff, Padamada became verbally threatening to airport employees.

When police arrived Padamada continued to behave violently and police arrested him. During the arrest an officer was knocked to the ground and sustained an injury to the knee.  Another officer injured their hand before police deployed a taser and were able to arrest Padamada.

Padamada was subsequently charged and bail set at $5,750.00 pending a court appearance.
