For some time I have been in charge of following long time felon Lyon Hamilton of Princeville, Hawaii. Lyon grew up in the small town of Princeville on the island of Kauai. His dad Billy Hamilton was a soul surfer and huge legend on the island. His status wasn't only from surfing though. It was also for his ability to get drugs into the islands from Peru and Columbia. Meth, Cocaine, and Marijuana were imported into the islands inside Bill Hamiltons Surfboards. Lyon's brother Laird Hamilton was a pro surfer who fell under the worlds magnifying glass from the big waves he rode. Today he is a waterman and a fitness guru that celebrities of all types flock too. Growing up Lyon was always tried to step out of the shadows of his older brother Laird. This fell short when he picked up his father old habits. Lyon entered the dark world of drug trafficking, dealing, and prostitution. He was Hawaii's first real drug cartel. Lyon was growing Marijuana in his banana fields, pedaling Oxy Cotton, and running a prostitution ring on the islands. Eventually, his business expanded to Meth and Cocaine. Lyon didn't care if you were friend or family as long as he was doing his job. Lyon expanded his business to the mainland (California) with longtime and San Diego Drug Kingpin John Riddle. Riddle also owned a house in Hawaii. In the year 2000 Crime caught up with Lyon Hamilton and he was convicted of 3 counts: (Count 1- Promoting a dangerous drug in the third degree), (Count 2 - Unlawful use of drug paraphernalia), (Count 3 - Promoting A Detrimental Drug in the third degree). His partner John Riddle was convicted to 9 years in Prison.

Case No. 5PC00-1-000051 7/10/2000

Lyon Hamilton was sentenced to 1 year in Prison and 5 years probation

After getting out of jail and forced to live a clean life Lyon married Amy J. Hamilton. Lyon's probation was lifted and life seemed to be back on track. Lyon was using his brothers fame to get jobs and meet people. He tried to gain credibility off his brothers well being. Although, people didn't know Lyon was the black sheet of the family. No one wanted anything to do with him. Not his dad nor his brother Laird. Lyon had no skills and no education and fell back into crime. Him and his surfer friends fell into the Oxy Cotton craze that swept the islands. Lyon was the main distributor and had all his friends hooked. In a rage one night he was arrested for Domestic Abuse against Amy J. Hamilton (Wife). In 2007 Lyon was arrested and issued with a restraining order.

Case No. 5DA07-1-000084 5/4/2007

Only 3 months later Lyon was arrested again for Harassment, Unlawful Entry, and Abuse of family and household members. Lyon was collecting on some drug debts like any Cartel would.

Lyon was becoming a monster. His wife feared him and ended up filing for a divorce in 2008. Can you blame her?

Case No. 5DV08-1-000017 2/20/2008

After a long career in drugs Lyon finally gained fame but not in the spotlight he probably wanted. Lyon was hated by every surfer and surf fan that knew who he was. Lyon played a role in the death of World Champion Surfer Andy Irons. Andy was hooked on Oxy Cottons in result of Lyon Hamilton doing what he does best.
In 2010 Andy flew home from a contest and died in a Texas hotel. The Tarrant County Medical Examiners Office concluded that Andy died from a cardiac arrest due to a sever blockage of a main artery of the heart. The second cause of death was "acute mixed drug ingestion," listing alprazolam, methadone, benzoylecogonine (a metabolite of cocaine), and traces of methamphetamine.

Even after the loss of his friend in 2010 Lyon is still going large today. He has ruined tens of thousands of lives including friends and families. He uses his family's credibility and careers to gain "ins" with people. He is unemployed aside from paintings he attempts to sell. He is also unemployed.

shame on chris and connie carmichael

AUTHOR: friend of the Hamiltons - ()

After reading this report i was concerned with it and contacted Bill,Lyon and also the state attorney office as this says this report was listed by them. Being a long time resident of Oahu and personal friend to Joann Hamilton Lyons mother, i felt that something should be done. first off when i contacted the state attorney they said that David and his staff would never file a report publicly on any matter concerning any case. i then asked if there was any on going investigations into such allegations filed by this report, they said whoever filed the report did so unlawfully. they seemed more concerned with the fact that someone used the state attorney office to falsify a report. Stating they would look into a potential alert of someone impersonating a law official. They also stated no pending or official record had been kept by them of Lyon Hamilton.

i then contacted Bill Hamilton and asked him if he read the report and directed him to do so as Lyon had not returned my call yet. When Bill read the report he called me back and said that it was written by Chris and Connie Carmichael who are former friends of the Hamilton's and Lyons former employer. He stated that the Carmichael's who are degenerates that have no class. they have been feeding off of people for years. Not to worry as it work it self out. Bill then laughed saying Lyons never been publicly shy when stating his faults, just ask him as he's plain and simply honest as Joann was.

i then received a phone call from Lyon whom i had not spoken to since the passing of his mother over a decade ago, as i went over the report with him he was as Bill put it just like Joann. i could hear he had nothing to hide or be ashamed of. after reading the report Lyon said to me that it was in fact Chris and Connie Carmichael whom wrote this report as he even had a text from Chris identical to the report. He said to me that he's close to Bruce,Lynde and the Irons and publicly was never blamed by any surfer he or Andy knew. He said yes I did drugs,yes i was arrested,and yes i've been aware that these mistakes are part of my past but in no way am i responsible for anyones choices,nor did Andy die of drugs. He died of genetic heart disease,as others members of his family from the identical disorder.

He then went on to say that he worked for Chris and Connie Carmichael whom are the current owners of UBIQUITY INC and SMELIVE.COM. Stating that he lived with them off and on for several years, during his employment and friendship with them  he saw them do a bunch of things that were illegal,and basically felt guilty for being part of it and left on bad note.  He said that they Chris and Connie are telling people that he was extorting them for money. That he was in fact an employee and had records to prove it. That were actually afraid of the fact that he was aware of their illegal activity,making up a story about him wanting to have sex with his wife Connie and extortion to go with it. he said that this report is another attempt to slander,hurt,and twist what really matters the truth of which will come out no matter what. He then stated Laird and Bill are famous surfers from media not famous from actual people that are personal friends that know them as its never affected him or people that truly know him. Saying hey if people want to contact me they can  and i'm gonna tell them the truth about anything as thats just how i am, plus i don't owe anyone money and thats whats this whole slander report thing is about, the Carmichaels are the ones who owe all the money. 

we concluded our conversation with little concern to this report, me and most of Hawaii knowing full well that the Hamiltons are beloved citizens with a reputation of respectability as i'm sure Joann still sees it.
