Mililani man, 26, arrested in fight with ex-girlfriend

Police arrested a 26-year-old Mililani man Sunday night after he allegedly kicked his 26-year-old ex-girlfriend and later chased after her in a vehicle and forced her off the road.

Police said the woman reported that her ex-boyfriend kicked her several times during an argument over visitation rights of their 2-month-old baby girl in Mililani, so she left in her vehicle with their daughter.

The man then chased her and allegedly used his vehicle to sideswipe her vehicle and force her off the road at about 6:30 p.m. Sunday, police said.

The woman received minor injuries but refused medical treatment, police said.

Police arrested the man on suspicion of first-degree criminal property damage and abuse of a household member.
