M'boro man threatened to 'smash' police officers

A 40-YEAR-old Maryborough man with a history of domestic violence and drug use has apologised to the community for three incidents where he yelled and swore at his former partner, threatened to "smash" police officers and was found with cannabis.

The man pleaded guilty to six charges in Maryborough Magistrates Court on Tuesday, including public nuisance, breaching a domestic violence order, breach of bail, possessing dangerous drugs and contravening a police direction.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Chris Elder said the man went to the hotel where is former partner was staying in March, banging on her door and swearing at her to open up.

After she called police, the man was told to move on and not return however he came back several hours later and fell asleep under a tree on hotel property.

In a letter he read out to the court, the man said time in jail made him rethink the relationship.

He was granted immediate parole but it came with a warning from Magistrate Graham Hillan not to reoffend.
