RYAN Rabauliman Pua has been arrested again, this time for threatening a store clerk at New Downtown Market in San Jose and for resisting arrest.

An arrest warrant was signed by Superior Court Associate Judge Teresa Kim-Tenorio on June 11, 2020 and bail was set at $3,000.

Pua, 35, was charged with disturbing the peace, assault and battery, and resisting arrest.

The store clerk called the police after Pua “menacingly accosted him for the prices of beers that he was purchasing.” The store clerk said he recognized Pua because he has a long history of causing disturbance at New Downtown Market.

Responding police officers found Pua at an old shop behind the store with a bottle of liquor at his feet.

A police officer who approached Pua immediately detected a strong odor of alcohol from him. When the officer asked Pua what had happened, the defendant told the officer to stop bothering him or he, Pua, would file a complaint against the officer.

After he was identified by the store clerk as the person who threatened the victim, Pua was arrested by the police.

According to the police, as they were taking Pua to the police vehicle, Pua started to resist and kicked the arresting officer.

Pua also told the officer that once he gets out of prison, he will hunt down the police officer and kill him and his family, police said.

On the way to the Department of Corrections, police said Pua continued to spit at and kick the arresting officer.

Last month, Pua was released from Corrections after serving time for his involvement in a disturbance at Saipan Vegas and for “head-butting” an arresting police officer in February 2020.

Pua has been arrested for various offenses including disturbing the peace, misdemeanor theft, assault and battery, and criminal trespass.

In April 2017, he admitted stealing a black pickup truck at an auto shop in Gualo Rai.

Pua was sentenced to the maximum five years’ imprisonment, all suspended except for one year. He was placed on two years’ probation. He was also ordered to pay a $1,000 fine and perform 100 hours of community service.
