PARIS, Tex. (KXII) -- A woman hits a man with her car and drives through his home before leading officers on a high speed chase through Paris Sunday night, with two small children in the car.

This Paris home located near the corner of East Booth Street and Northeast 11th was severely damaged Sunday night, when police say a woman used her car as a weapon and drove through the home.

"At 8:06 p.m, officers responded to the 1000 block of East Booth in regards to an assault. Officers were told that a known suspect had driven a 2012 Buick through the front of the house," Police Lt. John Berry said.

Police Chief Bob Hundley says the homeowner, Rafael Chaves, was outside his home when the woman hit him with the car then continued into the home

Hundley says it appears to be a domestic dispute.

Berry said the woman then drove out the side of the house before leaving.

"The suspect left and then returned. When officers arrived, that suspect took off in the car and led officers on a pursuit," Berry added.

A pursuit Hundley says hit speeds of 80 to 90 miles per hour, that police eventually called off when they learned a two-year-old and a six-month-old were both in the car.

"Officers were made aware of the possibility of two children being in the car and the pursuit was terminated at that time. We believe that the suspect may have fled to the area of Mt. Pleasant," Berry said.

Chaves suffered a broken leg.

Police say they're still investigating.

The woman could face a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
