HPD Sergeant's estranged wife granted TRO after claims of harassment from officers
Honolulu Police Sergeant Darren Cachola is facing new allegations from his estranged wife.
Tuesday, a judge granted her a temporary restraining order after she accused him of sending Honolulu Police Department (HPD) officers to harass her.
46-year-old Darren Cachola was arrested in April for misdemeanor abuse of a household member and two counts of harassment. Cachola's police powers were removed in April, and he remains on restricted duty.
His estranged wife's lawyer said on Tuesday, HPD officers blocked her vehicle into a parking lot and said they wanted to question her for violating custody orders. According to her lawyer, she has temporary sole custody and Cachola was the one who did not comply with scheduled visitation.
He plans to file a complaint against the Honolulu Police Department.
Back in 2014, Cachola was accused of punching his then girlfriend at a Waipahu restaurant. He was fired, but eventually got his was back in after a challenge from the Police union.
