Police were called and Byrnes left before returning an hour later in a rage of fury as she began yelling, banging on doors and crying as she ‘got her belongings’, Fraser Coast Chronicle reported.
The grandfather, 78, was helping unload items from a car to give to Byrnes when she grabbed him and threw him aggressively onto the ground.
The man suffered bruising and bleeding to his arm, a grazed knee and pain.
The mother-of-one then threw a brick through the back window the man’s vehicle.
Byrnes appeared in Hervey Magistrate’s Court on four charges including serious assault including charge to wilful damage after smashing the window with a shovel.

Byrnes apologised to her ex-boyfriend’s grandfather and was ordered to pay $250 for the broken car window.
She was also handed a 12 months’ probation with no conviction recorded.
