For the second day in a row, a Pāhoa woman was arrested on the Mauna Kea access Road.

Cynthia Marlin was arrested at 10:30 p.m. on Monday, July 13, 2015 and was charged with disorderly conduct.

Police say South Hilo Patrol officers responded to the report at 9:18 p.m. of a woman yelling.  According to police, it was reported that the woman had been disruptive to peaceful protesters and that she had briefly removed her clothing.

Marlin was being held at the Hilo police cell block in lieu of $1,000 bail at last report. She is scheduled to make her initial court appearance this afternoon.


The incident comes following another encounter with police on early Sunday, July 12, in which Marlin was processed on charges of criminal property damage and obstructing.


Police say she was detained on the mountain by a Sheriff’s deputy for allegedly using her car to ram the vehicle of an Office of Mauna Kea Management ranger.

She was released from custody on those charges the same day after posting $500 bail.
