KALIHI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Authorities have arrested an OCCC detainee who should have been transferred to the Hawaii State Hospital but was released instead.

The detainee has been identified as Winston Kailimai, 25. 

The state Department of Public Safety said Kailimai was sentenced and released on a misdemeanor charge Wednesday.

However, he was also found unfit to stand trial on an unrelated assault case and should have been transferred to the Hawaii State Hospital, a psychiatric facility in Kaneohe.

Working on a tip, deputy sheriffs arrested Kailimai about 3 p.m. Thursday on Nimitz Highway near Sand Island.
