WATERFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -

A 34-year-old woman has been arrested after leading police on a car chase and later striking an officer northwest of Detroit.

Waterford Township police say another officer tried to stop the woman early Wednesday morning after receiving a report that she had followed a teenager to the girl's home.

The woman eventually was stopped by a second officer who ordered her from the car. Police say she accelerated, striking the officer who fired eight shots into the car.

The woman drove off again, stopped at a dead end and ran away. She later was found hiding nearby.

She suffered an arm wound, but police aren't sure if she was shot. The officer struck by the car was treated at a hospital and released.

The incident is under investigation.
