SAND SPRINGS, Oklahoma -

Sand Springs Police released dramatic video of an officer trying to stop a woman they say used a stolen SUV as a weapon.

The video was recorded by the body camera worn by Master Patrol Officer Matt Stacy. It shows him responding to a call about the stolen SUV and turning into the entrance to Northwoods Elementary School. He stops his squad car when he sees the SUV coming toward him, opens the door, steps out and yells for the driver to stop. 

The video shows the SUV speeding directly at him and his car as he fires two shots. It also shows the impact of the SUV smashing into his car and sending him flying. 

At a news conference Monday afternoon, Chief Mike Carter said Officer Stacy's plan was to stop his car and put out spikes to puncture the SUV's tires. Carter said Officer Stacy had three seconds after he stopped his car and stood up next to it to determine the SUV wasn't going to stop and that's when he decided to fire his gun at it.

Officer Stacy fired twice, with one bullet hitting the SUV's hood and the other hitting his own car's windshield post.

Sand Springs Police also released video from cameras worn by other officers as they surround the wrecked Infiniti SUV trying to get the driver to surrender.

An officer eventually climbed through the sun roof and tased the suspect, Stacy Ann Bunsey, 41, before he and the other officers arrested her.

Somehow Officer Stacy avoided serious injury in the collision. He's been a Sand Springs police officer for almost five years.

Police booked Bunsey into jail on Friday, November 6, 2015 on complaints of possession of a stolen vehicle, eluding a police officer, assault and battery with a deadly weapon on a police officer, DUI drugs and resisting arrest.
