The woman tried to leave by kicking the door made of koa when staff found her, breaking off panels in the process.

The woman was later arrested by Hawaii police after jumping over a seawall and swimming across Kailua Bay. Officials said the door and glass date back to the 1800s when King Kalakaua renovated the Palace.
