'Dad, please calm down’: Child deals with vicious rage

A man who so viciously berated his partner and threated to kill her had to be calmed down by his own child, a court has heard.

Caboolture Magistrates Court heard the man launched a tirade of abuse at the woman including calling her "a f*cking mutt" and a "dog".

Magistrate James Blanch heard the father, who appeared via video link from custody, told the woman "I'm going to kill you".

"You've painted me into a corner," Magistrate Blanch said.

"Calling the aggrieved a dog at least four or five times... you were out of control," he said.

"Your own child had to say 'dad, please, calm down.

"You're a bully and a coward."

The court heard the man had a long history of domestic violence offences, including being sentenced to jail for a domestic violence order breach in September last year.

The court heard he also struck a man in the head after a disagreement, leading to a charge of assault occasioning bodily harm.

He pleaded guilty to breaching a domestic violence order and the assault occasioning bodily harm of the man he was sentenced to six months jail on each count, to be served concurrently, and ordered to pay $500 compensation to the man.
