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.
