A Koroit man accused of intentionally driving at a woman has been banned from driving a motor vehicle.
Wayne Delaney, 60, allegedly drove his 1989 Mercedes Benz at the victim before colliding with a fence on Wednesday about 10pm.
He appeared in Warrnambool Magistrates Court the following day charged with reckless conduct endangering injury, assault with a weapon, drive in a manner dangerous and possess a drug of dependence.
The court heard the man was at home with the female victim on Wednesday night when they began arguing.
He left the house, hopped into his Mercedes and began revving the engine.
The victim came out and tried to talk to the man but he allegedly reversed out of the driveway at speed.
The victim stood in front of the vehicle to stop him from leaving but Mr Delaney allegedly drove directly at the woman, causing her to jump out of the way to avoid being hit.
The vehicle then crashed into a fence.
Nearby residents heard a loud bang and came out of their property to observe the Mercedes driving off at speed.
Mr Delaney drove straight to Warrnambool police station and handed himself in.
The court heard he smelt strongly of cannabis. When asked if he had any drugs on him, he retrieved a sandwich bag containing seven grams of green vegetable matter.
Mr Delaney allegedly told police his eyes glazed over before he hit the accelerator and drove towards the victim.
"I wanted to f**** run her over," he allegedly told police.
The court heard that if released from custody, Mr Delaney would reside at Penshurst.
He was granted bail with strict conditions, including he not drive a motor vehicle or attend the city limits of Koroit.
He will appear in court at a later date.
