WAIKIKI (HawaiiNewsNow) - A 12-year-old boy was taken into Honolulu police custody Monday night, accused of brandishing a knife at a Waikiki bar.

Investigators say a 29-year-old male bartender asked the pre-teen for identification when he entered the bar at about 6:30 PM. At that point, the boy allegedly pulled out a knife and placed it on the counter of the bar.

Officers arrested the child on suspicion of first-degree terroristic threatening, but later re-classified the case as a harassment.
