July 28—The Hawaii Department of Public Safety has confirmed that State Sheriff Robin Nagamine and First Deputy Patrick Lee have been placed on “unspecified leave.”

No reason was given, in accordance with the department’s policy on disciplinary actions. However, it is believed that the suspensions are related to the department’s handling of another sheriff deputy’s arrest for driving under the influence of an intoxicant two years ago.

Shawn Tsuha, deputy director for law enforcement, is filling in for Nagamine. Lee’s duties are being temporarily filled by Lt. Albert Cummings.
