A Terang man remanded in custody for 69 days has squealed in delight after finding out he would be released from jail.
Brett Hull, 25, of Spring Dam Road, screamed "you are the best" at a magistrate who sentenced him to the time he had already served in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court on Monday.
Hull pleaded guilty to drug and driving-related offences.
Police said on October 19 a search warrant executed at Hull's home uncovered 86 grams of cannabis.
Then on November 16 he was observed riding a trail bike south on Terang-Mortlake Road. He swerved onto the wrong side of the road before turning right into Terang's Blackiston Street.
He was intercepted by police and checks revealed his licence was disqualified and the bike was unregistered.
He blew 0.1 and admitted to drinking six or seven cans of bourbon.
Hull was also charged with aggressive and threatening behaviour toward police officers on October 23 and January 1. Police said during an attempted interview he threw water across the room, kicked a wall and flipped over a table.
No damage occurred. Hull was handcuffed and transported to a police cell.
Lawyer Ian Pugh said his client was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, had given up marijuana while in custody and was keen for rehabilitation.
He said Hull had previously breached community corrections orders but that a justice plan would provide his client with a "solid support framework to help him not fall back into the behaviour that leads him to breaching orders".
Hull was sentenced to 69 days' jail and placed on a 12-month community corrections order with a justice plan condition.He was also fined $750 and his licence was cancelled for 12 months.
