A man has gone on a rampage in an Albury liquor store, grabbing bottles off the shelf to hurl at staff after he had been released from custody just a few days earlier.
One woman grew increasingly frightened of Ronald McGillvray as he tried to strike, the bottles just missing then smashing at her feet, so hid behind a counter.
This didn't stop McGillvray, Albury Local Court heard on Tuesday, as his next bottle was thrown at least 15 metres across the aisles of the First Choice Liquor store in Dean Street.
IN OTHER NEWS:
Twice the bottles he threw smashed other bottles on shelves.
Earlier on Monday afternoon, McGillvray threw a carton of flavoured milk at a woman in central Albury as he rode past on a bike, then kicked an automatic door in the basement car park of West End Plaza, instantly smashing the glass panel.
It was only a week ago that magistrate Richard Funston allowed McGillvray to be released from custody on a two-month intensive corrections order, for kicking a car door mirror and throwing a metal bin frame at the back window of another car.
MORE ON RONALD McGILLVRAY:
He became irate on Tuesday, via a video link to the Albury police station cells, when it became clear he was heading to Junee jail, having failed to secure bail.
McGillvray ranted and repeatedly swore as he refused to listen to Mr Funston, who had to direct court staff to press the mute button on the link.
Earlier, after saying hello to McGillvray, Mr Funston told him how he was "disappointed to see you back there" in custody.
Defence lawyer Tim Hemsley said McGillvray was pleading guilty, but asked Mr Funston to order both a sentence assessment report and a NSW Justice Health report.
Mr Hemsley said this could be crucial in establishing exactly why McGillvray continued to offend in the way that he had over the past few weeks.
McGillvray admitted to three sets of charges, including matters of assault, destroy or damage property, offensive behaviour and resist arrest.
He will be sentenced on March 1.
