High-speed chase leads to crash, arrests


December 23, 2019

A high-speed pursuit in Havre Sunday that ended in a crash resulted in two arrests being made by the Havre Police Department, including of a man facing charges stemming from a string of burglaries earlier in the year.

Jaylen Crazyboy and Jaden Blacktongue, both 18, were being held in the Hill County Detention Center this morning without bond on pending charges.

Blacktongue and an unnamed 21-year-old female from Box Elder were immediately detained at the site of the crash on the 900 Block of Fourth Avenue while Crazyboy fled the scene, a Havre Police Department press release issued this morning said.

Crazyboy was located and arrested on the 1600 Block of First Street.

The release said Havre Police officers attempted to stop a 1985 Chevrolet Camaro Sunday at 10 p.m. for reckless driving as the vehicle entered city limits on the east end of town at an extremely high rate of speed.

Officers attempted to stop the vehicle on the 200 Block of 12th Avenue, but the driver of the vehicle didn’t stop and yield to the officers. Officers then pursued the vehicle through the city, but the pursuit ended after the vehicle crashed into a Chevrolet pickup that was parked and unattended on the 900 Block of Fourth Avenue. Both vehicles sustained extensive damage, the release said.

Blacktongue was arrested on four counts of felony criminal endangerment and charges of driving without a valid license, reckless driving, traveling the wrong way down a one way, speeding, failing to stop at stop signs, obstruction of a peace officer, possession of an intoxicant by a minor, open container and driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol and on a City Court warrant of arrest.

Crazyboy was arrested on charges of two counts of obstructing a peace officer, criminal trespass to property, violation of District Court conditions of release, open container and minor in possession.

Crazyboy is also facing counts of burglary, deceptive practices and theft relating to a string of thefts and burglaries in the area earlier this year. 

In January, the Havre John Deere dealership Frontline Ag Solutions and E-1 Towing reported people had broken into and robbed their facilities. Investigations of the burglaries led to charges or suspicion of involvement of a number of people including Jaylen Crazyboy, who was 17 at the time.

Crazyboy was not charged in that case, but charges on suspicion of another burglary were filed Oct. 11.
