SAND SPRINGS, Okla. (AP) – A woman who rammed a police officer’s car as he fired his gun at her speeding SUV has been charged with five criminal counts, including assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

The Tulsa World reports (http://bit.ly/1N1pLLx ) 41-year-old Stacey Ann Bunsey was charged Thursday in the dramatic chase captured on video from dashboard and body cameras.

Sand Springs Police Master Patrol Officer James Matthew Stacy survived with minor injuries after being thrown by the impact of the crash.

Stacy told investigators he intended to deploy stop sticks to disable the SUV’s tires, but realized he didn’t have time and instead took cover behind his car door.

Videos from cameras on police cruiser dashboards and officers’ bodies showed the end to the 6-mile pursuit through the streets of the Tulsa suburb.
