Police in Anderson say officers shot a man who tried to hit them with his car after they discovered his meth lab.

Detective Joel P. Sandefur says 32-year-old Dustin Roy Anderson was in stable condition Saturday at St. Vincent's Hospital in Indianapolis, where he was taken following the shooting.

Sandefur says police were searching a garage for a burglary suspect when they smelled an odor associated with making methamphetamine. While police were questioning the people in the garage, Sandefur says Anderson drove his 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier through the garage door at officers surrounding the building, knocking one of the officers down.

Another officer fired shots that struck Anderson once in the side.

Anderson faces charges of manufacturing meth and criminal recklessness. Police also arrested a woman who was with him.
