Citizen’s Arrests ARE LEGAL in Hawaii

According to Hawai’i Revised Statutes, section 803-3, “Anyone in the act of committing a crime may be arrested by any person present without a warrant.”

The law also permits the use of force in the arrest, according to Jim Fulton, spokesperson for the Honolulu city prosecutor’s office. After arresting someone, though, you are required to promptly turn over the suspect to the police-no instant justice, no overnight detentions.*
