Wong was arrested at 12:15 a.m. Saturday, March 9, by police at a residence in Wailuku. He was charged with abuse of a household member and has since posted bail.

“We are still investigating this matter as we speak, however, any domestic abuse is completely unacceptable,” Mayor Michael Victorino said. “I do not tolerate abuse or harmful behavior from anyone. We are handling this alleged incident as quickly and thoroughly as possible.”
