 Brighton police arrested a 71-year-old Roggen man on suspicion of careless driving causing death.

Officers think Billy David Metcalf Sr. was behind the wheel of a car that struck and killed 62-year-old Michael Steven Maes of Brighton in mid-September. The crash happened near Sixth Avenue and Bridge Street.

In addition to careless driving, Metcalf could face a charge of tampering with physical evidence. It's up to the Adams County District Attorney to make the decision.
