Pritchard was also charged with driving while disqualified, drink driving, driving without insurance and taking a motor vehicle without the owner’s consent.

Superintendent Peter Quinn, of Nottinghamshire Police’s public protection team, said: “Anyone who makes violent threats towards another person can expect a robust response from police.

“And we take very seriously reports of drink driving and driving offences to make sure other road users throughout Nottinghamshire are protected.

“Because as police officers we witness the immediate aftermath of traffic collisions and the wider impact they have on a community.

“I am pleased we have been able to bring a charge in this case and would like to reassure people that he was known to the victim and there is no wider threat to the community.”
