Bail bid over Matthew Guy office ruckus

A web technician charged over a violent episode at the electoral office of Victorian Opposition Leader Matthew Guy has vowed to fight allegations against him.

Rohan Michael Brown says the incident at Mr Guy's Bulleen office in May - where he is accused of smashing a glass door - was a "brain snap" moment.

He says he went there to talk to Mr Guy about police corruption.

"I was leaving when I broke the door," he told the Victorian Supreme Court as he applied for bail on Friday.

A self-represented Brown admitted he had been smoking synthetic cannabis daily for a few weeks in the lead-up to his arrest early in June.

He said he purchased the product from a sex shop, and was using it to cope with stress.

Brown claimed he had been harassed by some members of Victoria Police.

"I'm the victim of endemic police bullying and suffer post-traumatic stress," he told Justice Christopher Beale.

Brown said he had been using his time on remand to exercise, pray and read the bible and study a "neurological mind-transforming technique".

He cried as he asked for bail to see his son.

Leading Senior Constable Mark Sontag said Brown could present a risk to the community, including police and Mr Guy's employees, if released.

The prosecutor also said Brown may not front up to court and could commit further offences.

Brown is facing a series of charges, including threats to kill and property damage.

Some relate to the electorate office, while others are linked to previous alleged incidents.

Brown said the allegations were the result of "misinformation" and "cherry picking".

"I will and do intend to challenge each and every one of them," he said.

Brown's friend, Jan-Neil Dull, offered for him to live with her and said she had plenty of web-related work to offer him.

Justice Beale asked that Brown be assessed for drug rehabilitation and mental health treatment programs.

"This is something that would need to be teed up before I think about granting bail," he said.

The bail application was adjourned to Wednesday next week.
