Billings man, Brian David Massa was arrested and charged with Criminal Child Endangerment

According to the Billings Police Department, specifically Officer Ryan Donovan, Officer Donovan was dispatched to the area of 14th street West and Central Ave for a reported disturbance.

According to dispatch records, a Chevrolet Silverado pickup was reported to be erratic driving. The pickup was described as having a large grill guard and the pickup truck appeared to be “jacked up”.

Several Billings police were out looking for the vehicle and found the vehicle at the Rimrock Mall.  Brain David Massa observed getting out of the vehicle as the police officers pulled up in his pickup.   Officer Strobel and Officer Milam, both approached Massa’s vehicle.

Why would not Officer Strobel check on the children first?  Was not their safety more important that dealing with Massa first?

According to Billings Police Officer Ryan Donavan’s notes, Officer Strobel stated that the children appeared to be scared and crying and that one of the minor children stated “I’m Scared.”  Another  minor children was crying uncontrollably  Officer strobe stated in his police notes.  Strobel says he could barely understand the child, but then later in his notes he states that the minor child told him that Massa had left both children in the truck as he was in a casino.

Officers Milam, Lehman and Strobel had to forcibly place Massa in the patrol car as Massa was physically refusing instructions to get in the patrol car.

It turned out later that Massa may have been intoxicated and refused to allow the Officers to draw blood, or rather let Yvonne Houle in the detention center draw any blood.  The officers had to apply for  a telephonic search warrant for Massa’s blood sample.

Massa was yelling, being belligerent towards the Billings Police Officers so Massa was placed in a restraint chair  as he was becoming more physically violent towards the Detention staff and the Billings Police Officers.
