Police officers hit by car.
Joseph Edward McNeilis, 26, of All Hallows Drive, Speke, denies a charge of dangerous driving.
Lloyd Morgan, prosecuting, told Liverpool Crown Court officers were taking part in a covert operation aimed at detecting suspected drug-dealing outside the Halfway House pub in Woolton Road, Childwall.
Sergeant Charles Gregory and three constables were in an unmarked Ford Fiesta when a Vauxhall Vectra, driven by the defendant, came to a sudden halt in the pub car park.
Sgt Gregory gave the order to look at the car, but the defendant reversed the Vectra and the doors hit two officers, knocking them to the ground.
The case continues.
