Fellows was jailed for three years at Wolverhampton Crown Court on Friday.

‘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.’
PC Lovering picked Fellows out in an ID parade and he was arrested.
PC Lovering said: ‘It was pure luck that there weren’t any cars near me when I was knocked off the bike, as it could have been much worse.
‘I had some some back and shoulder pain, but nothing was broken.
‘It was really heartening to see so many people stopping to help and check that I was OK and offer their help.’
Detective Sergeant Chris Jones, from West Midlands Police CID, said: ‘Fellow’s actions were completely reckless and it’s lucky that PC Lovering did not sustain serious injuries.
