WAIANAE, Hawaii, Aug. 5 (UPI) -- Authorities in Hawaii said an intoxicated man allegedly punched a store clerk who refused to sell him liquor.

Police said the 26-year-old man, whose name was not released, became angry at a Waianae liquor store around 3:30 p.m. Saturday when the clerk refused to sell liquor to the apparently intoxicated man, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Monday.
