A 37-year-old Hilo man, Skyler Fisher, was charged with numerous drug and firearms offenses in connection with a violent incident early Friday evening in downtown Hilo, police said.

According to police, officers responded shortly before 5:15 p.m. to a reported weapons incident in the parking lot of a retail establishment on the 500 block of Kilauea Avenue. Two men told officers their vehicle was struck in the parking lot by another vehicle. As the victims got out to assess the damage to their vehicle, the driver of the other vehicle physically assaulted one of the males and threatened him while holding a firearm, police said.

Acording to police, the search yielded the recovery of a: loaded semi-automatic pistol; loaded revolver; unloaded semi-automatic pistol; AR-15 type rifle; bolt-action rifle; pump-action shotgun, pistol silencer; miscellaneous caliber ammunition; approximately 270 ml of testosterone enanthate, a liquid steroid; more than 200 steroid pills; and more than 1000 diazepam pills.

Fisher was charged Saturday with: first-degree unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle; first-degree terroristic threatening; third-degree assault; carrying or use of firearm in the commission of a separate felony; two counts carrying or possessing a loaded firearm on a public roadway; three counts of illegal place to keep unloaded firearms other than pistols and revolvers; three counts of illegal place to keep pistol or revolver; possession of a prohibited weapon, the silencer; illegal place to keep ammunition; and two counts first-degree promotion of a harmful drug.

Fisher is free after posting $68,000 bail on Sunday afternoon.
