The Paul Hamilton will be leaving Pearl Harbor on Friday.

The destroyer is named after the third Secretary of the Navy who served under President James Madison from 1809 to 1813.

Violence at Aloha Stadium prompts call to ban alcohol

Image from YouTube video taken from Saturday's game

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow)- "This is what happens when beer happens," said the voice behind a YouTube video shot at Aloha Stadium Saturday night.

The two-minute clip captured a scrap in the stands during the second half of the UH Warriors game against Lamar.

"We got a fight going on," the cameraman said.

The tape showed a handful of drunken fans in an altercation with Honolulu police.

UH interim athletic director Rockne Freitas suggests Aloha Stadium officials consider banning alcohol sales during UH games.

"This is my own opinion. I want to see a ban," he said.

The Aloha Stadium Authority has the power to impose an alcohol ban. In 2006 a call for one was defeated by public testimony.

Saturday's altercation prompted Freitas to ask Aloha Stadium manager Scott Chan to discuss an alcohol ban with the Stadium Authority.
