HONOLULU (KHNL) - A judge has postponed the trial for a former Honolulu liquor commissioner accused of driving under the influence.

Danny Kim appeared at Honolulu District Court Wednesday afternoon. Police pulled his car over in Kahala in February.

Prosecutors say they're not ready to go to trial because one of the arresting officers is on military leave and won't return until next month.

Kim's attorney asked the judge to dismiss the case. But the judge granted the prosecution's request for more time.

"How do you feel about the state getting another continuance?" this reporter asked the defendant.

"I'm sorry, there's not going to be a comment at this time. Thank you," Brian Costa, defense attorney, said.

Kim's DUI trial is now scheduled for October 23rd.
