SEE IT: Suspected DUI driver plows into Oklahoma cop

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

A suspected Oklahoma DUI driver plowed a stolen SUV into a cop and his squad car, called herself God as she was Tased and sang Christian hymns while handcuffed — a bizarre saga captured on the officer’s body camera shows.

Stacey Ann Bunsey, 41, drove into Sand Springs Officer James Matthew Stacy Friday during a police chase through the Tulsa suburb before she braked in a ditch and popped out of the car’s sunroof, police said.

“I’m God, b—h! Welcome to hell!” Bunsey yelled while smiling and waving at the officers who swarmed the SUV.

Stacy — who fired two shots at Bunsey before she crashed into his squad car — was not injured in the wreck and quickly joined his fellow officers to help take the suspect into custody.

“My only explanation was he was under the protection of God,” Police Chief Mike Carter said at a press conference Monday, according to the Tulsa World.

Stacey Ann Bunsey (r.) slammed a stolen SUV into Sand Springs Officer Matt Stacy Friday, police said.

The wild rampage started Friday when Sand Springs officers received reports of a stolen SUV. The cops caught up with the vehicle just after noon, but the driver refused to pull over and sped away.

Stacy caught up with the fleeing driver into a parking lot. The cop got out of the car and stood behind the driver’s door as Bunsey looped around and began charging toward him, video from his body cam showed.

As the white SUV barreled toward the cop, he fired two shots, but neither hit Bunsey. Instead, she hit Stacy’s car, sending him tumbling toward the ground.

The cop quickly got back on his feet and ran toward Bunsey’s SUV, which came to a halt nearby, the video showed.

Stacy fired two shots at Bunsey as she sped toward him, police said. Neither bullet hit the suspect.

Several officers surrounded the wrecked SUV and demanded Bunsey get out of the car. Instead she popped out of the roof, waiving one hand and cackling.

“This house is on fire! Burn this motherf–ker!” she screamed, according to video from a second cop’s body camera.

The cops repeatedly demanded she show her other hand, which was still inside the car. They eventually shocked her with a Taser, sending her tumbling back from the roof and into the car.

The officers pulled Bunsey out of the car, cuffed her and walked her to a squad car. As one officer examined her for possible gunshot wounds, he mentioned he wanted to make sure she didn’t “bleed out.”

“I don’t bleed out, I’m the Holy Spirit, b—h!” she yelled. “Now can you bow down?”

Then, she started singing “Jesus Loves Me.”

“Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so. Little ones to Him belong; they are weak, but He is strong,” Bunsey screeched as a cop held her against the patrol car.

When police asked Bunsey if she wished to make a statement, she recited the Lord’s Prayer, according to the police report.

She later told officers she “did a line of ice” the night before the wreck.

Officer Stacy, who has been on the force since Febraury 2011, was taken to a local hospital after the crash as a precaution and was treated for minor abrasions.

“He’s doing good,” Carter, the police chief, told the Daily News Tuesday. “We’re making him take a few days off work, just because of the ordeal, but he’ll be back on duty later this week.”

Bunsey, of Tulsa, was booked on a slew of charges assault and battery with a deadly weapon on a police officer, eluding a police officer, driving under the influence of drugs, possession of a stolen vehicle and resisting arrest.
