A teenage thug has been caught on camera knocking a police officer off his motorbike while driving a stolen car.
Callum Fellows, 18, was driving a dark blue Seat Leon when PC Steve Lovering pulled up alongside him as he waited at a set of traffic lights on Ashes Road in Oldbury, West Midlands.
CCTV and the officer’s body-cam captured the shocking moment PC Lovering was sent sprawling. Fellows reversed the car before ramming into the officer, knocking him on to the other side of the road.
Video shows the officer shouting out in pain before radioing colleagues for help as Fellows sped away during the incident on August 27.
He said: ‘I’ve been deliberately rammed off my bike from that vehicle. It’s gone left, left towards Blackheath.
‘Two IC1 (white) males on board.’
Fellows narrowly missed running over the officer when he turned onto the wrong side of the road before going through a set of red traffic lights.

Shocked members of the public can be seen rushing to help PC Lovering while one woman photographed Fellow’s registration number on her mobile phone.
One man asks the officer: ‘Are you alright? Are you sure you don’t need to sit down?’
PC Lovering replies: ‘I’m good thanks, mate.
‘Worst thing about it – it’s not the first time it’s happened, it won’t be the last. It was a stolen car. Thank you everyone very much for stopping.’
