California woman, 51, is arrested for violating Hawaii’s 14-day quarantine order

A California woman has become the latest person from mainland America to be arrested for violating Hawaii’s strict 14-day quarantine order. 

Misty Beutler, 51, was detained by authorities Friday after witnesses reported her out and about in Honolulu just days after she arrived there. Visitors and residents returning to Hawaii are required to stay indoors and self-isolate for a fortnight in a bid to stop the spread of COVID-19. 

According to a press release from Governor David Ige’s office, Beutler touched down in Honolulu May 9 to stay with her son at his condominium complex. 

A resident at the complex claims they saw Buetler and her son unloading her luggage on that day. However, just two days later, they spotted her returning to the residence with beach equipment in hand.

Then, on May 12, the resident reported that Beutler was out again – this time walking her son’s dog. 

Investigators went to the complex to interview the witness on Friday, May 22 and saw Beutler and her son coming out of an elevator ready to head outside. 

She was promptly arrested and taken into custody. Her bond is set at $2,000.  

Hawaii Attorney General Clare Connors stated: ‘Law enforcement agencies across the State have cited hundreds of people for emergency rules violations and have made dozens of arrests for violating the travel quarantine. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation in these efforts.’

On Wednesday, another woman from mainland America was arrested for breaking the self-quarantine orders after she posted photos on social media of herself at the beach.

Alyza Alder, 18, allegedly flew to Honolulu from her home in Arizona on May 6 and started posting photos on Instagram just three days later.

Alder was arrested at that restaurant on Wednesday afternoon. Her bail has also been set at $2,000.
