·1-min read

A man faces multiple charges after a police officer was knocked off his motorbike while attempting to help a motorist in southeast Queensland.

The officer was conducting speed checks at Rochedale about 1am on May 9 when a silver Holden Commodore stopped, appearing to have engine problems.

The officer attempted to stop in front of the vehicle, but the car drove towards him, clipping his motorbike and throwing him off.

It then reversed and rammed the police motorcycle before driving off.

The officer was uninjured as he was able to move away before his bike was rammed.

Police found the car in Upper Mount Gravatt about 9.40pm on the same day and it was identified as having false number plates.

A 43-year-old man has been charged with one count each of acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm and other malicious acts, dangerous operation of a vehicle, as well as a range of other offences involving registration and attempted stealing.

He will appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court on July 19.
