Hawaii authorities have arrested former NBA star, Lazar Hayward, after he tried going into the US island with fake covid-19 vaccination documents in order to gain entry.
Hawaii officials have made it a rule that any guests who are unvaccinated are required to show documents proving that within the last 72 hours, they have tested negative for COVID. If they don’t have that test, then they must first quarantine for 10 days on the island before patronizing anywhere.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Hayward, 34, was with Raven Randle, 33, when he arrived at the Lihue Airport on the island of Kauai.
They traveled to Hawaii from Los Angeles, and upon arrival, they attempted to upload fake vaccination papers into the airport’s Safe Travels portal.
Hayward and Randle’s paperwork was flagged and the pair were reportedly “arrested on charges of unsworn falsification.”
The penalty the pair will face are uncertain as at press time.
