BIG ISLAND (HawaiiNewsNow) - A 29-year-old Hawi man arrested following a confrontation at a fire station has been charged with second-degree assault and first-degree terroristic threatening.

Police say at 9:15 a.m. patrol officers responded to a call from the Hawi fire station. When they arrived, they saw a man struggling with a male firefighter on the floor of the firehouse driveway. Police say the 49-year-old firefighter was bleeding profusely from the head.

Police say Dylan Trumpy of Hawi, was arrested on suspicion of assault and taken to the North Kohala police station for processing. He was then transferred to the Kona police cellblock pending further investigation.

Police say it appears Trumpy had driven to the station and become disorderly and aggressive while demanding information and names of Fire Department personnel. He reportedly attacked the firefighter and stabbed him in the head multiple times with a ball point pen after being asked to leave the station due to his behavior.

The firefighter also suffered abrasions to the face and body from the struggle. He was treated at Kohala Hospital for his injuries and then released.

Trumpy remains at the Kona police cellblock in lieu of $4,000 bail pending his initial court appearance.
