A Warrnambool man alleged to have breached a court order the day after it was put in place has been arrested and charged with a range of offences after an incident at a Warrnambool hospital.
Warrnambool police Acting Sergeant Paul McGovern said the order was put in place on Thursday last week, but on Friday the 23-year-old called a woman from a hotel.
Police allege he demanded the woman pick him up or he would jump off a cliff into the ocean.
The woman felt guilty, took her toddler and picked up the man who was intoxicated.
The man again threatened self-harm and the woman took him to the Warrnambool Base Hospital for assessment.
They argued in the hospital car park and a security guard intervened, taking the 15-month-old toddler into the hospital.
The man entered the hospital to be assessed and is alleged to have assaulted a nurse.
The security guard intervened, but he was placed in a headlock.
The guard was able to free himself, restrained the man and police arrested the offender.
The man was lodged in the police station cells but police and custody officers had to again intervene to protect the man from himself.
The man struck out hitting the leg of a custody officer.
The Warrnambool man has been charged with making threats to kill, breaching a court order, unlawful assault, recklessly causing injury, assaulting an emergency worker on duty and breaching his bail conditions.
He was arrested on Friday and remanded in custody over the weekend.
He appeared in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court on Monday for a bail application, which was adjourned until Thursday for more documentation to be obtained.
