A 21-year-old farmer with "an anger issue" was sent to jail last week for assaulting his partner.

Shane Antony Manuel appeared before Judge Michael Turner in the Invercargill District Court for assaulting a female and breaching a protection order on July 1.

He was sentenced to five months and two weeks' jail.

Judge Turner said that after Manuel argued with his partner, he started packing his bags but she told him to get out immediately. A protection order was in force against Manuel at the time. Manuel ignored his partner and she threatened to call police. He grabbed her around the neck from behind and pulled her backwards, causing her to fall and land on her back, before standing over her, applying pressure on her neck, packing the rest of his possessions and leaving, Judge Turner said.

He told police he grabbed her around the neck because there was no need for her call police and he had planned to leave as soon as he finished packing.

Judge Turner said Manuel had an anger issue.
