During the fight, deputies say the man in the passenger seat slammed the woman's face into the steering wheel and somehow caused the vehicle to go in reverse. That caused the car to smash into a mailbox, and then into a neighboring house.

The vehicle smashed into the house's bedroom, where a woman was getting out of bed. Deputies say she is OK.

Nicholaus Simmons was arrested and will be charged with domestic assault, reckless endangerment and felony vandalism, deputies said.

According to court records, Simmons has faced domestic assault charges twice becore.
