OLYMPIA, Wash. —

The Thurston County sheriff's office says a deputy shot a driver in the arm after the deputy's vehicle was rammed multiple times.

The Olympian reports (http://is.gd/USuYD2 ) that the deputy was called to help Nisqually Tribal Police, who had been pursuing an apparently intoxicated driver at about 3 a.m. Saturday.

Sheriff's Lt. Greg Elwin says that when the deputy tried to intercept the suspect, the suspect's sedan crashed into the deputy's marked sport-utility vehicle head-on. As the deputy got out, the suspect's car continued ramming the SUV. The deputy fired, hitting the 29-year-old suspect in the arm.

The suspect was being treated at a hospital and was expected to be booked into jail upon his release for investigation of assault.

Elwin would not confirm how many shots were fired by the deputy.

The officer-involved shooting is now being investigated by a regional team headed by Mason County Sheriff's Office.
