HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Honolulu police officer arrested this month is set to make his first court appearance Thursday morning.

Officer Scott Valdez was arrested last week for unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle and criminal property damage.

The 43 year old was assigned to the traffic division at the time of the incident.

He has since been re-assigned, and his gun and badge were taken away.
