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.

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.
