A PORT Fairy man who terrorised his partner and smeared blood on a police officer has been given a day’s bail.
Billy-Jo Heard, 35, of Elizabeth Street, appeared in Warrnambool Magistrates Court yesterday on charges of criminal damage and committing an indictable offence while on bail.
The court heard that on June 7 about 12.20am Heard was arguing with his partner at their Port Fairy home when he stormed out of the house and allegedly threw a concrete ornament through a window.
On August 4 the couple had another argument, this time over tobacco, when it’s alleged he punched a hole in the wall and used a child’s scooter to crack the windshield of the victim’s car.
While at the Warrnambool police station cells, Mr Heard kicked a police officer in the leg and smeared the officer with blood from a cut on his hands.
Police had to use bolt cutters to remove the damaged handcuffs.
Magistrate John Lesser granted bail to the accused to see a liver specialist, with the condition that he report to police today.
Mr Lesser also issued Mr Heard with a family violence intervention order.
Mr Heard will reappear in the magistrates court today.
