HONOLULU (KHNL) -- Honolulu police opened an internal affairs investigation after an officer, who's restricted to desk duty, managed to disappear with a blue-and-white car for 12 hours.
Officer James Urban is charged with drunken driving. Sources say the 31-year-old appeared to be intoxicated when he finally returned with the patrol car at about 2 am Tuesday.
Sources say the Kapolei officer was stripped of his gun and badge following a previous DUI arrest. They say he left the Kapolei station to deliver some paperwork, then disappeared.
Sources say, at one point, the blue-and-white car he took was seen parked in front of a bar on Kokea Street in Kalihi.
