A Warrnambool man who told a court he had just come out of a coma has been remanded in custody and ordered to be medically assessed.
The 35-year-old man appeared in Warrnambool Magistrates Court on Thursday via video-link from the Warrnambool police station cells.
He told the court he had "just been in a coma" and was otherwise incoherent.
Magistrate Peter Mellas remanded the man in custody and requested he be medically assessed.
The man is charged with causing criminal damage, breaching his bail and committing offences while on bail for stealing from a shop.
It's alleged that earlier this year he broke the front wire door and a wooden door at an acquaintance's unit.
He's also charged with stealing a bottle of bourbon from a supermarket outlet on June 14.
