Authorities said two Honolulu police officers who fled from Clark County Park Police were arrested on drug possession charges this past weekend at a police softball tournament.

Park police officers entered Desert Breeze Park, at Durango Drive and Spring Mountain Road, at 8:15 p.m. Saturday and spotted a white van parked across two spaces illegally, Clark County spokeswoman Stacey Welling said.

As officers approached the van, it took off and two men got out and started running across the park, Welling said.

Park police arrested 37-year-old Kevin Fujioka, the driver of the van, and charged him with driving under the influence of narcotics and possession of marijuana, Welling said.

Police also arrested 47-year-old Shayne Souza for possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting a police officer and obstructing a police officer, Welling said. Both Fujioka and Souza are police officers in Honolulu.

In the course of the arrest, park police had to spray Souza with pepper because he resisted arrest, Welling said.

A third man, 38-year-old Scott Wilson, a Honolulu social worker, was also arrested for possessing marijuana and having an open container of alcohol in the van, Welling said.

The three men were attending a softball tournament in Las Vegas sponsored by the Nevada Police Athletic Association.
