A Monahans man accused of stealing oil was charged in federal court this week.
David Wayne Schroeder was arrested in December of 2013.
Police were called to a possible stolen vacuum truck.
When they arrived, Schroeder was off-loading oil.
According to the report, he started to run and then stole a car trying to escape.
The officer fired his gun twice, hitting Schroeder in the buttocks.
He got away but was arrested the next morning at a 7-11 in Monahans.
Schroeder told officers he stole the oil to pay for his drug addiction.
