A Warrnambool man facing assault charges attempted to escape police custody at the weekend, injuring an officer in the process, a court was told.
Joshua Hall, 31, appeared in Warrnambool Magistrates Court on Monday charged with offences, including escaping police custody, resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer and unlawful assault.
The man made a self-represented bail application which was refused on the grounds he did not show compelling reasons why he should be released from custody.
Mr Hall became enraged, yelling and shouting at both the magistrate and police prosecutor.
He told the court the alleged offending was "all lies".
A police custody officer restrained Mr Hall and led him out of the court room.
The accused will appear in court again on July 10.
The court heard Mr Hall had allegedly assaulted a woman on the weekend.
Police prosecutor Sergeant Sandra Skilton alleged he had then fled in a white Nissan Pulsar.
She said Mr Hall was later arrested and conveyed to the Warrnambool police station.
The court heard a police officer told the accused he would be remanded in custody.
Sergeant Skilton said Mr Hall immediately fled the station, running through the front sliding doors of the Koroit Street building and jumping over a wall.
She said the police officer chased the man outside and tackled him to the ground.
The pair tussled for a couple of minutes before the officer took control of the situation and placed the man under arrest.
During the scuffle, the officer injured his right knee, the court heard.
Mr Hall allegedly told police he was "sorry", that he had made a mistake and his "anxiety got away from me".
