Hawaiian Singer Arrested for Shooting Neighbor

Hawaiian Singer Arrested for Shooting Neighbor

Santa Barbara County – The tranquility of a northern Santa Barbara County mobile home park in the city of Orcutt was shattered on the morning of Friday, September 25th, when, according to Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department Public Information Officer Kelly Hoover, deputies responded to a 911 Emergency call reporting “a victim who was shot in the leg.”

Upon arrival, deputies discovered a 39-year-old male victim indeed suffering a bullet wound to the leg, who reported he’d been engaged in a verbal dispute with his neighbor, Aylett Hauki. It was at the entrance to Hauki’s residence where the victim had allegedly been shot. Deputies determined that Hauki, a 55-year-old native of Oahu, Hawaii who frequently performs as a Hawaiian singer at local venues, and is known professionally as “Big A”, was still inside his home, whereupon “a reverse 911 went out to area residents instructing them to shelter in place.”

With the neighborhood then secure, deputies called Hauki on his cell phone and presumably gave him the “easy way or hard way” choice to either step outside on his own or be extricated by force at the hands of those experienced in doing just that. Hauki, apparently not interested in a forcible extraction from his home, then “cooperated with orders to come out” and surrendered himself to armed deputies.

At that point the reverse 911 warning was rescinded, and Hauki was taken into custody to be transported directly to Santa Barbara County Jail, where he was booked on charges of assault with a deadly weapon.
