A man accused of multiple domestic-violence offences that led to a stand-off with police in the early hours of Saturday has been denied bail.
Tolland man Michael Brian Mannell, 38, appeared via videolink in Wagga Local Court on Monday.
The court heard how Mr Mannell allegedly broke into a Mount Austin home before using a machete to threaten police officers.
Mr Mannell has not entered pleas to the charges, which include aggravated break and enter and commit serious indictable offence, detain person intending to obtain advantage and cause actual bodily harm and use weapon intending to commit an indictable offence.
Mr Mannell's application for bail was made via the show cause test, requiring his solicitor, David Rofe, to show why he should be released from custody.
Mr Rofe said his client suffers from paranoid schizophrenia and that he is an Indigenous Australian, which are two special vulnerabilities in the Bail Act.
"In addition, he tells me that he can stay with his sister [in Wagga]," Mr Rofe said.
"The proposed bail condition would be house arrest."
Police prosecutor Sergeant Priscilla Jones said the cause was not shown because Mr Mannell was also before the court for earlier alleged offences involving the same person identified as the victim.
Mr Mannell has also been charged with intimidate intending to cause fear and harm, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and contravening a domestic apprehended violence order.
Magistrate Christopher Halburd refused bail, saying the allegations were serious and that "it is an extremely strong Crown case".
He also said that there was no evidence to support Mr Rofe's argument about paranoid schizophrenia and that the bail conditions proposed were not enough.
Mr Mannell is set to reappear in Wagga Local Court on December 12. On Monday, the court also set November 7 and 15 for hearing and sentencing of two other domestic-related sets of matters involving Mr Mannell.
