KANEOHE, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A man stationed at Marine Corps Base Hawaii was arrested Thursday following a high speed chase and multi-car crash on the Pali Highway.

The incident started around 12:45 p.m. when a solo-bike officer was conducting traffic enforcement on the H-3 freeway near Mokapu Saddle Road when a silver Scion drove past at a high rate of speed. According to police, the officer followed the sedan to the intersection of the H-3 Freeway and Kamehameha Highway, where the driver went off the road.

According to police, the Scion swerved towards the officer when he approached the vehicle on foot.

After a brief chase, police say the driver eventually hit the median and a sign near the intersection of Pali Highway and Nuuanu/Pali Drive, where it reversed and struck another solo bike officer. The driver then drove back toward Kailua and struck a vehicle near the intersection of Pali and Kamehameha Highways shortly after 1 p.m.

No serious injuries were reported.

The driver, 22-year-old Sean Michael Shipe, was arrested for two counts of second-degree attempted murder, but he was charged Saturday with terroristic threatening and criminal property damage. His bail is set at $200,000.

The incident snarled traffic and officials closed the left lane on the Pali going towards Kailua for several hours as police investigated.
