These are the shocking moments before and after a motorcyclist mows down a police officer after being flagged down for travelling more than 30km/h over the speed limit on a suburban street last year. The dramatic CCTV was released by the WA District Court on Thursday after Judge Charlotte Wallace jailed the rider — Seth Andreas Andersen — for two years. In sentencing the 37-year-old, Judge Wallace said it was clear from the footage Andersen — who was on bail for other offences — was trying to evade police and that the officer, who was wearing his uniform and hi-vis, was “incredibly brave” by putting himself in the path of a speeding motorbike rider. “I have seen the CCTV,” she told Andersen. “In my view the officer is completely and utterly blameless. He took immediate action to protect the community. He was incredibly brave.” The court was told Andersen was travelling 81km/h along Holcombe Avenue in Warnbro on February 23 last year when he was flagged down by police for speeding. At first, Andersen began to slow down — prompting the officer to step off the footpath and onto the road. However as he drew closer, and passed a car, he accelerated and moved into the opposite lane. In a bid to stop him, the officer also stepped into the opposite lane but Andersen kept going, hitting the senior constable at 46km/h before fleeing the scene. The court was told the officer — a father-of-one — sustained an open wound to his left leg, fractures to his left tibia and fibula as well as a wound to the back of his head. While some of those injuries have healed, he still suffers pain in his leg leaving him unable to perform operational duties. The incident has also left him with emotional scars. In his victim impact statement, which was read out to the court, the officer revealed how his life changed dramatically that day — and how his worst nightmare had come true. “Under no uncertain terms, it has been hell,” he wrote. “What happened in February 2022 was very much life-altering. I had a lot of anger and resentment both towards myself and Seth Andersen. “(This) has rippled into every aspect of my life.” The officer wrote the only thing he remembered from that day was “lying in agony” and repeatedly trying to phone his wife who, the court was told, received a call from his colleagues saying he had been injured in the line of duty. He also revealed how he suffered a breakdown and had to be hospitalised and that he could not return to operational duties because he feared being injured again. “This has changed part of my identity,” he added. “And it has left me feeling powerless to change anything.” The court was also told Andersen had a history of obstructing police and traffic offences with prosecutor Nathan Fawkes revealing one of those involved an incident in 2018 where he was arrested following a struggle with officers during a random breath test. His lawyer, Mark Hager, told the court his client “wholeheartedly” accepted responsibility for his actions, the effect it had on the officer’s life and that he was remorseful. Andersen had handed himself in to the police two days after the incident. However, Judge Wallace said his contention that he didn’t see flashing lights, that he was “anxious” on the day and that he tried to avoid the police officer did not, in her view, amount to genuine remorse. She did however take into account his early guilty plea. She jailed him for two years, backdated his sentence to February last year and made him eligible for parole after serving 12 months, which means he could walk free this month.
