"Authorities became aware of his social media posts from citizens who saw posts of him - on the beach with a surfboard, sunbathing, and walking around Waikiki at night," the statement reads.

Bail for Peters, who was arrested in the presence of an unnamed local man, has been set at $4,000, according to Ige's office.

"We appreciate the assistance of local people who spot flagrant violations of our emergency rules on various social media sites and report them to the appropriate authorities," Attorney General Clare Connors (D) said in a statement.

During the coronavirus pandemic, the state has begun requiring all tourists to provide contact and lodging information and sign an agreement to self-quarantine for 14 days.

"By signing the legal document, they acknowledge they understand violating the order is a criminal offense and they are subject to a $5,000 fine and/or a year imprisonment," the state's Department of Transportation said.

Ige said in a recent online question-and-answer session that the measures are "extreme, but necessary to flatten the curve and lay the groundwork for our recovery," according to a San Francisco CBS affiliate. Ige has said the mandatory quarantine rule will remain in place at least through the end of June.
