LIHUE, Hawaii

Police on the island of Kauai say 38-year-old Norman Akana Jr., of Lihue, was driving his truck along the beach Saturday behind the Wailua Golf Course when a wave pulled the vehicle into the surf.

Akana was not injured.

Three tow companies were needed to pull the submerged Ford F-150 from the water.

Akan was arrested on suspicion of operating a vehicle under the influence of an intoxicant, refusal to submit to testing and reckless driving.
