They say he allegedly drove a car that struck two pedestrians on the street in front of the Waianakulani Beach Resort, causing one of them to be taken to the hospital.
Police say the suspect had been drinking.
The man was taken to Waianakea Medical Center for treatment.
Maui Police Chief Jim Filippini says officers had been watching for the suspect for a number of days.
“He was very erratic, very erratic and we didn’t think he was impaired, but we do know he was drinking,” he said.
Maurice Lai, the CEO of the Maui County Chamber of Commerce, said in a statement that the arrest was disappointing.
“While Maui is a great state, our residents deserve more from our government and that’s why we have asked for a full review of our tourism policies,” he wrote.
Makati and Hawaii are among the few US states to ban alcohol.
