Supercop's villain sentenced

A man's been jailed for 15 months after leaving a policeman badly injured in the road in a hit and run accident. PC Diederik Coetzee was cycling to a gym in Blidworth near Mansfield while off duty. He was well respected in the Nottinghamshire force, where he was nicknamed RoboCop.

A judge at Nottingham Crown Court said twenty six year old Mitchel Graham had driven off not caring if PC Coetzee lived or died. Graham admitted dangerous driving and failing to stop at the scene of an accident.
