Wembley man who mowed down police officers and injured woman driver in Harrow is jailed

Michael Wilson, 30, left a scene of destruction during bid to escape cops last summer

A Wembley man who mowed down several police officers and left a woman driver injured during a getaway mission has been jailed for 18 months.

Michael Jason Wilson, of Central Road, knocked over the officers before ploughing into a parked car with a female inside, and smashing into another officer on June 27 last year.

Harrow Crown Court heard the 30-year-old was in his car in Harrow when he spotted the officers approaching his vehicle from behind in his rear view mirror.

He reversed into them causing minor injuries before colliding with the female driver.

In his haste to getaway he accelerated further resulting in him hitting another officer who sustained an injury to his shoulder.

The officers decided not to pursue him as they were concerned about the welfare of the injured woman.

Detective Inspector James McEvoy, from Harrow Police, said: “This was the behaviour of a man who clearly did not want to be stopped by police and his actions to avoid this were not only reckless but extremely dangerous as well.

“I’m only relieved that none of my officers or members of the public were more seriously injured in this incident.

“We welcome this sentence handed to Wilson by the court.”
