Most of the time, things don't work out like they do in action movies, which apparently came as a surprise to 18-year-old Luis Cardenas this morning.

Cardenas, who allegedly started a car chase with the Phoenix PD a little before 1:30 a.m. today, ended up driving to Scottsdale and onto a Scottsdale police car, at which point Cardenas narrowly avoided being shot by an Arizona Department of Public Safety officer.

According to a Scottsdale PD spokesman, Phoenix cops tried to pull over Cardenas near 52nd and Oak streets, and that got a few agencies on Cardenas' tail, since that area's just blocks from Tempe and South Scottsdale.

Cardenas' Saturn was found by a Phoenix PD helicopter on the Loop 101, where Cardenas got off at McDowell Road and headed into an alley near 70th Street.

Both a Scottsdale officer and an Arizona Department of Public Safety officer entered the alley, and Cardenas tried to escape by ramming the Scottsdale cop's car, police say.

Cardenas ended up driving onto the hood of the cop car, at which point the DPS officer fired a shot at Cardenas, which went through his windshield, but missed Cardenas.

Police were able to arrest Cardenas without shooting him or giving him any other injuries, police say.

Cardenas was booked into jail on a charge of aggravated assault.

"Cardenas tried to scape by ramming the Scottdale cop's car, police say" It might've been all the way around, with the cop ramming Cardenas's car- I don't think that Cardenas would be alive if He'd done that-. and the shot was fired just to play the part and don't look bad to other Officers or the PD. Keep in mind that people gets shot just for allegedly try to run over an Officer or the officer thinking that an individual is pulling a gun, now imagine somebody ramming the Officer's car with Him inside.... it just doesn't add up

The scum bag was purposely trying to hit the officer.  A civilian would have shot at anyone that was about to run them over so what is the difference if it is a police officer?!  The suspect's car had two wheels on top of the officers hood of his car and was stuck on it.  After spinning his tires in reverse he was able to get off of the police officer's car and sped backwards.  He plowed into my son's Jeep and totalled it.  The article failed to mention that the scum bag totalled an innocent person's vehicle.  We all know that you never get the value you deserve from a totalled vehicle.  My son had recently paid off his Jeep and now he has to find a new vehicle and start making payments again!!  Is that fair?!

@marcy Sure lets be just like a extremist country and kill anyone breaking the law without trial, or even a reason. sounds good right? why stop there, lets kill all the people who owe money or cannot pay rent also and live on the street.

Missed on purpose, and fired only once because they are currently under investigation for unloading their firearm into civilians.

@JustDoIt So if you had a gun and someone was racing toward your vehicle to run you over, you would not shoot to save your life?!?!

@ConcernedMom @JustDoIt Everyday I see people racing thru intersections, in fact just saw an 80+ year old woman cut in front of a 20 year old on a motorcycle. In that case should the driver of the motorcycle be able to shoot and kill her? Another man on his cell phone plowed into me at 75 MPH+ while I was stopped, many people die and they call them accidents. Proving intent to actually use your vehicle to kill someone and trying to run away or purely negligence are greatly different things, in this case I believe the officer did well by not killing the scumbag, prove intent he may get life or a real long time to deal with his mistake.
