The suspected thief, Stacy Ann Bunsey, was not hit by either shot fired by the officer, slamming the stolen car into the police cruiser. Officers chasing the vehicle arrived and reportedly needed to climb through the SUV's sunroof in order to arrest the driver.

Bunsey faces a host of charges, including assault and battery with a deadly weapon on a police officer.

Officer Stacy suffered only minor injuries.
