Cop ‘hit with bike’ in dramatic arrest
A man has been charged after he allegedly struck a Road Policing Command officer with a motorbike yesterday afternoon in Geebung.
Police say the senior constable was conducting speed camera duties near a school on the intersection of Newman and Robinson Roads at 3.45pm when he saw a motorcycle that had been involved in a number of traffic offences in the area recently pull up at the lights.
"It will be alleged that the officer then parked his motorcycle in front of the bike and activated his lights and the other bike then reversed before riding into the officer's bike before both dropped to the ground," police say.
"It will be further alleged that the man then attempted to flee the scene before the officer was able to chase him down on foot and take him into custody."
The senior constable was taken to hospital for treatment to a minor injury to his knee and his bike sustained minor damage.
