Police injured after being struck by car

Three men have been arrested after two Ballarat police officers were hit by a car while responding to suspicious activity at Brown Hill in the early hours of this morning.

It’s believed the two police officers, a constable and senior constable, were speaking to the occupants of a vehicle along Bradbury Street before the driver allegedly reversed, striking both members about 2.40am.

The police officers suffered minor injuries.

A 21-year-old Napoleons man has been charged with reckless conduct, assaulting police, possessing a prohibited weapon and traffic offences.

He was remanded in custody.

An 18-year-old Ballarat man has been charged with drug related offences and was bailed.

A 21-year-old Wendouree man was interviewed and released pending summons.

Victoria Police spokeswoman Belinda Batty said the two injured police members were still fit to work.
