Katie Price has described the shocking moment her son Harvey broke a windscreen with his bare hands and attempted to attack a driver.
The mum-of-five, who recently recalled writing a "goodbye letter" to cocaine after her stint in rehab, said Harvey, 18, tends to get out of the car and punch the windows when the routing is wrong in the car.
Speaking out ahead of her documentary Katie Price: Harvey and Me, the star explained that her disabled son can do "more damage" to himself with these behaviours.
"To give you an idea how strong he is, he smashed out a windscreen on the car that takes him to school and back," she said.

The 42 year old continued: "If the routing goes wrong he gets out and just punches the window screen.
"I could have shown all that [in the documentary] and show all the smashed tellies lined up outside ready to be dumped. But I’m not really going to gain anything from all that. It's enough you see all the holes in the wall."
The former glamour, who recently revealed Harvey also "kicked off" on a plane after refusing to get off and armed police were called, model went on to tell The Sun: "But it’s more damage he can do to himself. If he smashes a window he can cut his hand up, or sometimes he head butts the wall and could split his head open.

"When he’s in the car, I worry that he might open the car door which is why he always has someone in the car with him when he goes to school, and sometimes he might go for the driver."
This isn't the only time Harvey, who is partially blind, autistic and has Prader-Willi syndrome, has acted out as Katie explained he gets anxiety when she is not around and causes harm to himself.
In the new BBC documentary, she heard that her eldest could be sectioned if he is unable to successfully make the transition to college later this year.

This weekend, Katie confirmed Harvey has moved into a house on the same road as the family home to make things easier when he does leave for his care. On the programme, the star spoke to her friend Anna Kennedy, who set up her own college when she couldn't find provisions for her autistic sons.
Anna warned: "If the placement doesn't work for Harvey you don't want it to start effecting his mental health, his wellbeing. Then he might start self-harming or harming others."
Katie then revealed: "He does that when he gets anxiety. He's got scars, it's when he gets worried."

Alarmingly, Anna then suggested Harvey could be sectioned under the Mental Health Act if his behaviour gets worse.
"Not that I want to scare you, but if the placement doesn't work the local authority can come in and forcibly take Harvey away if they feel he is a risk to himself and others," she added. "He could end up in a mental health unit or an assessment and treatment unit. Once they've gone in there it's really difficult to get them out as they've been sectioned. As a parent it's really difficult."
"This is bad," she added. "Hearing some stories on people who have been sectioned is awful. I can see they've got similarities to what Harv is like."
Katie Price: Harvey and Me airs oat 8.30pm on Monday 25th January on BBC One
