“The knee jerk reaction from myself was that this guy needs to be arrested and brought to justice- as a police officer… but when you step back and you compose yourself and you think – what needs to be done…” Chief Louis Kealoha said in a press conference regarding the incident.
Sgt. Darren Cachola, an 18-year, newly promoted, veteran at the Honolulu police department is under investigation after a video was given to police of him savagely beating his girlfriend in the restaurant she manages.
In the video, the sergeant is seen attacking and repeatedly punching the woman as she moved from room to room, until coworkers came and put a stop to it before the police arrived.
The officer has not yet been arrested, and his coworkers who responded at the scene did not arrest Cachola or open any criminal case. They are currently under investigation, but have not been removed from duty.
Cachola’s girlfriend alleges that they were just playing around, however, this is not the first domestic violence complaint against the officer, Hawaii News Now reports.
The officers ex-wife, and mother of his children, filed two petitions for temporary restraining orders against him in 2002 and 2009. She also alleges he threatened to kill her if she went to police.
Cachola has been temporarily stripped of his police duties pending the investigation.

Reporting domestic violence is scary, reporting domestic violence by your significant other to their coworkers and peers is even scarier, especially knowing how rare it is for an officer to cross the thin blue line against one of their own.
