The man who assaulted Redskins left tackle Trent Williams in a Honolulu nightclub was the club’s owner, Michael Miske Jr., police told Michael Tsai of the the Honolulu Star Adviser.

According to police, Miske struck Williams, who was in Hawaii for today’s Pro Bowl, in the head with a dangerous instrument, reportedly a Champagne bottle, during an altercation. The incident took place at Miske’s M Nightlife nightclub at Restaurant Row.

Trent was unable to participate in the game due to his injuries.

National Football League Security subsequently warned players to stay away from the nightclub “pending (the) outcome of a criminal investigation conducted by the Honolulu Police,” according to NFL.com.

Miske, 38, was arrested Saturday at the Honolulu Police Department headquarters on Beretania Street and charged Sunday with second-degree assault. His bail was set at $250,000.

Miske, who is also the owner and president of Kamaaina Termite and Pest Control, has an extensive criminal history that includes 10 convictions, six for felonies, dating back to 1993.

In 1995, Miske was convicted of fraudulent use of a credit card and three counts of theft and was sentenced to 50 hours of community service and five years of probation, and was ordered to pay $5,300 in restitution.

Five months later, he was found guilty of kidnapping, felony attempted assault and speeding, and was sentenced to five years’ probation, assessed a $105 fine and ordered to pay $625 in restitution.

In 2006, Miske was convicted of third-degree assault related to an altercation with a high school student and was sentenced to a year of probation. The student was also granted a petition for an injunction against harassment from Miske.

  1. I am appalled at the behavior by these three men. I am ashamed of them and they should be as well! What a horrible example to set toward the Pro-Bowl players after they have shown nothing but Aloha to Hawaii. We are proud to host the Pro-Bowl and I would like to be the first to send an apology to the NFL and Trent Williams for the horrendous treatment shown to him.
