Tony Goodchild was granted the domestic violence order against his former girlfriend. He told Darwin Magistrates Court the woman was trying to hunt him down and threatening to "cut his penis off''. The unusual application caused laughter in the courtroom. But the Northern Territory News reported Mr Goodchild -- who was shaking and carrying two backpacks during the hearing -- said he had been in hiding in the long grass from his ex since she had "bashed'' him up. "I'm pretty scared,'' he said. Mr Goodchild (pictured leaving the court with his DVO) told the court he went out with her for four years. Magistrate Greg Cavanagh made him take an oath in court on the Bible to swear he was telling the truth. "You didn't make it up?'' the magistrate asked. "No,'' Mr Goodchild said. Mr Cavanagh told Mr Goodchild he could only grant an interim domestic violence order -- preventing his ex-girlfriend from approaching or threatening him -- as she was not in court to answer to the case. Mr Cavanagh adjourned the case for two weeks to give NT police time to serve her with the order. Mr Goodchild thanked the magistrate and quickly left the courthouse, still clutching the order to his chest as he walked through Darwin's CBD.
