This month in history — January 1904 — Hawaii congressional delegate Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole said policemen in Washington D.C. hit him from behind, tackled him to ground, and arrested him for “disorderly conduct” in a billiard saloon. But they said the Hawaiian prince was arguing with a man, they told him to quiet down, and he told them he was a congressional delegate and acted abusively.
