A Canberra Cavalry championship player booted from baseball over a doping scandal is in jail on remand after allegedly threatening to kill himself and his ex-partner.
Aaron James Sloan, 26, fronted the ACT Magistrates Court on Thursday via audio-visual link from the Alexander Maconochie Centre.
The former infielder has pleaded not guilty to two counts of breaching court orders and one count of stalking; the latter charge arising from a complaint made by his ex-partner.
Police documents said Mr Sloan called the woman 113 times in a single day in March this year, and would send her between five and 50 emails in the same timeframe.
Magistrate Louise Taylor said on Thursday: "That's a significant number of phone calls."
"He needs to have the self-control to say, 'This is not in my interest'."
The police documents said Mr Sloan once told his ex-partner, "I'm pure evil". They said police overheard him saying, "You want psycho, you'll get psycho", "I've already called the boys, they'll drop a gun to me", and, "I'll come back and make sure our son doesn't have a mother or a father".
Police said that in June last year, Mr Sloan sent the woman a photo of him holding a gun. They said he told her he was on the way to her house, and said he was going to shoot officers if she called them.
Baseball Australia banned Mr Sloan for four years after he tested positive to ice on January 20, 2017. The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority said the drug was a stimulant that could speed up parts of the body and the brain, increase alertness, and reduce fatigue.
On Thursday, Mr Sloan's lawyer Tim Sharman argued his client should be granted bail. He conceded the 26-year-old had a history of similar offending, but said the charges should be viewed in the context of Mr Sloan and his ex-partner having re-kindled a relationship.
Mr Sloan was arrested on Tuesday for one of the breaches, and the court on Thursday heard he's currently subject to an intensive correction order - a jail sentence served in the community.
Ms Taylor ultimately refused to grant Mr Sloan bail because she was "simply not satisfied that he has the capacity at this stage to abide by court orders", regardless of the context of his alleged offending.
Mr Sloan is next due in court for a hearing on October 27.
