An Air Force sergeant re-indicted on attempted murder charges has been released from jail before his trial begins.
Claude Custard, 35, was back in court Monday morning for his arraignment and plea. The Ewa Beach man is accused of attempted murder after a 2011 shooting at the Princess Palace in Pearl City.
Police say Custard got into an argument with two men and fired his gun from his car, hitting one of the men five times.
After numerous delays with the first trial, the judge dismissed the case, but prosecutors re-filed the charges and asked for an increase in bail to $1 million.
"It boggles my mind that the prosecution would increase bail to a million dollars for someone who has been out in public working without incident. There has been nothing reflected regarding his conduct," said attorney Myles Breiner.
Breiner added Custard wasn't trying to flee the islands, but wanted to transfer with his Air Force unit as required by the military.
Judge Richard Perkins agreed that Custard did not appear to be a flight risk or a danger and released him to the supervision of his parents.
Trial is scheduled to begin in September.
