Billings police said two suspects fled Tuesday night after crashing a white 2001 Chevy Malibu into a South Side residence.

The home at 304 S. 28th St. was struck at 8:19 p.m. and is the same home involved in a police standoff that ended peacefully last week. 

Witnesses stated that the vehicle was speeding southbound on South 28th Street when it lost control and crashed into the house. A man and woman were seen fleeing from the scene.

Daniel Brawley, 28, was arrested in the 3700 block of 2nd Avenue South and was charged with resisting arrest, obstructing a peace officer and fleeing the scene of an accident, according to a Billings Police Department press release.

The release states that alcohol appears to be a factor in the accident and is under investigation.

Officers later tracked down the woman who was a passenger in the car but, after questioning, did not arrest her, Lt. Kevin Iffland said.

Resident Mary Chavez was in her bedroom making her bed when she "heard a big crash."

"I knew something had hit because I felt the shock," Chavez said. "I jumped high and far away."

The Malibu, with license plate that reads, "BOBETTY," drove over the lawn and crashed into the side of the home.
