Mr Blackler, 30, did not enter a plea when he appeared before Magistrate Michael Antrum before the matter was adjourned until next week.

"Your honour, I had a conversation with my learned friend and tried to negotiate the AVO," Mr Blackler's lawyer Matthew Edwards told the court.

"Unfortunately we haven't resolved the matter."
