Special agents from the Attorney General’s Investigations Division rearrested Evan Dorsey, 27, and Angel Henri, 30, in Waikiki on Friday afternoon. They were first arrested Thursday morning, Oct. 1, for the same reason.

When Dorsey was released that same day, officials said that he posted on social media that he was defying the state’s quarantine law. Security at the hotel, where the couple was supposed to quarantine, told special agents that they left. Ten minutes later, special agents arrested the couple.

A witness also reported to officials that Dorsey created a second social media post that showed him and Henri surfing at Kuhio Beach.

The couple face a second quarantine violation charge. Their bail was set at $2,000.
