Policeman Hit By Car: Man Remanded
A man has been charged with attempted murder after a police officer was struck by a car in Birmingham.
50 year old Carl Anderson, from Aston appeared at Birmingham Magistrates' Court on Monday the 10th of June to hear claims he "used his car as a weapon" when he deliberately knocked down the constable and crushed him against a lamp post, police said.
A West Midlands Police spokesman said the 44-year-old officer was pinned between the open driver's door and a lamp post after the car reversed at him at speed.
The Sutton Coldfield-based officer was responding to a 999 call reporting a burglary in Gravelly Hill, Erdington, near Birmingham, on the afternoon of Friday the 7th of June. He suffered serious leg and pelvic injuries.
On Sunday night, he underwent a six-hour operation to have a metal pin inserted in his left leg and plates in his fractured hip. He remains in hospital in a stable condition.
A police spokeswoman said Birmingham Magistrates' Court heard how police responded to reports of a shed break-in Gravelly Hill at around 3pm.
After the suspect's description was radioed across police airwaves, attempts were made to stop a motorist in nearby Compton Road.
Police recovered a car abandoned in Minstead Road, a short distance from Spaghetti Junction, and arrested a man in Aston, Birmingham, at 7pm.
Anderson, of Aston, faces charges of attempted murder, burglary, dangerous driving, driving whilst disqualified, and assaulting arresting police officers.
He was remanded in custody ahead of his next court appearance at Birmingham Crown Court on Wednesday the 12th of June.
