HONOLULU: Former Browns linebacker Kaluka Maiava, now of the Oakland Raiders, and his brother are charged with assaulting two men at a Maui bar.
Maui Prosecuting Attorney John Kim says Maiava and 30-year-old brother Ilima Maiava are charged with misdemeanor assault and criminal property damage, a petty misdemeanor.
They allegedly caused bodily harm during a brawl at Life’s a Beach in Kihei on March 17. That would be four days after the Raiders signed the 27-year-old from Wailuku to a three-year, $6 million contract. He played four seasons with the Browns after being a fourth-round pick out of Southern California.
Maiava’s agent couldn’t immediately be reached for comment Wednesday.
The brothers were served with summonses on July 2 when prosecutors learned they would be on the island.
Arraignment is scheduled for July 25.
