A MAN in custody has lashed out at his lawyer and thrown a chair after he was told he would not be applying for bail.
Warrick Cooper, 23, appeared in the Bendigo Magistrates' Court on Wednesday via a video link from the Bendigo Police Station.
He had been remanded in custody after an arrest warrant was issued last week. Mr Cooper is facing charges in relation to a theft.

When Mr Cooper's lawyer told the magistrate he would not be making an application for bail, the 23-year-old lashed out at his representative.
Mr Cooper called his lawyer an "f****** dog" and a "piece of sh**" before telling the court he was sacking his lawyer.
When the magistrate told Mr Cooper to be quiet, the 23-year-old picked up a chair in the custody room and threw it at the video camera.
The screen at the station was allegedly damaged in the incident.
Mr Cooper was remanded in custody. He is due to return to the Bendigo Magistrates' Court next month.
