A Warrnambool man already on bail for trafficking methamphetamine has been remanded in custody charged with throwing a ceramic bowl at a young teenage girl.
Matthew Price, 37, appeared in Warrnambool Magistrates Court on Tuesday where he made an unsuccessful, self-represented bail application.
He told the court he'd been attending the Western Region Alcohol And Drug Centre (WRAD) in Warrnambool for one month and had a doctor's appointment for his mental health on Thursday.
But magistrate Franz Holzer said Price had not shown exceptional circumstances why he should be released on bail and remanded him in custody until December 23.
The court heard Mr Price was arrested on August 2 and charged with trafficking and possessing ice, possessing cannabis and possessing a controlled weapon.
He was bailed to reappear in court on February 15.
But on Monday, Mr Price allegedly further reoffended by throwing a ceramic bowl at a 13-year-old female victim.
The bowl hit her to the left side of her face, causing instant pain.
Police allege the victim began crying, causing the man to further lash out and break the landline phone at the victim's property.
The victim called her mother, who contacted police.
Police arrived at 4.50pm and told the man he was under arrest for criminal damage and other offences.
Mr Price allegedly continued to rage and resisted police by refusing to put his hands behind his back and attempting to shove the arresting members.
He was eventually arrested, conveyed to Warrnambool police station where he was interviewed and charged with criminal damage and assault and bail-related offences.
