Road rage cyclist hit policeman
A cyclist has been given 100 hours community service after a road rage incident in which he attacked a man who turned out to be a police inspector.

James Steele, 21, of Lord Nelson Street in Sneinton, Nottingham, jumped a red light in front of a car in Radford.

Nottingham Crown Court heard the driver looked over at Steele, who opened the car door and punched him in the eye.

He admitted causing actual bodily harm and was also ordered to pay his victim 250 compensation.

The court heard Steele also bit the officer on the arm and finger in the struggle which followed the attack.
