The teenager found guilty of using a stolen car to mow down junior Queensland Police officer Peter McAulay, leaving him seriously injured on the roadside, has faced court for allegedly driving a stolen vehicle just weeks after he was released from jail.

The teen, now aged 18, cannot be identified due to his young age at the time he ran Constable McAulay down just west of Brisbane in September 2018.

Just weeks after being released from detention for the intentional, malicious act – committed in a stolen car – the teen has fronted court on multiple charges, including at least one charge relating to driving a stolen vehicle.
