Honolulu nightclub owner arrested, again
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Honolulu nightclub owner is in trouble with the law again.
Michael Miske Jr., 39, was booked Tuesday morning on charges of second degree assault and second-degree criminal property damage stemming from an incident last December.
Miske is part owner of the M nightclub at Restaurant Row and the owner of Kama'aina Termite Company.
Police say the assault happened in Honolulu on December 15, 2012.
According to a police report, Miske along with another suspect, caused substantial bodily injury to the victim, a 40-year-old man. Police say Miske also caused damages exceeding $1,500.00 to the victim's property.
Police say a 41-year-old woman was also assaulted when she attempted to intervene.
Miske was arrested in January for allegedly striking an NFL Pro Bowl player in the head with a champagne bottle. Miske has pled not guilty in that case.
Miske's record includes 10 convictions and six felonies, including credit card fraud, theft, kidnapping and assault.
Attorneys for Michael Miske, Jr. released the following statement on Wednesday.
This incident in 2012 involved a large group of people. Half a year later, Mr. Miske is now being wrongfully accused by someone anxious to take advantage of his business holdings and pending legal matters. The accuser's claims are baseless and financially motivated.
