Tulsa Police officers open fire on a man they say tried to run them over with his car. Police say they were called Saturday to the 2100 block of East Ute Street after the suspect's mother said he was suicidal.

When Tulsa Police arrived, they say the suspect tried to back-over an officer with his vehicle. Police say the officer shot at the car to keep it from hitting him. The suspect was not injured, except for a few cuts from the broken glass.

Police say the suspect was arrested and may face charges of assault and battery on a police officer.
