A dad threw a used vibrator at an Australian shop worker while raging that the sex toy didn't work.

Benjamin Thomas Pellicaan appeared in Maroochydore District Court, Queensland this week after his violent rampage in Totally Adult, which sells a variety of erotic goods.

The 29-year-old father-of-three turned up with the vibrator he'd recently purchased from the store, claiming it was broken.

He said the toy got "extremely hot" after just 10 minutes of use and asked that it be examined for any faults.

The shop sales manager later called him to inform him there were no issues with the vibrator.

The court heard Pellicaan flew into a rage, verbally abusing the woman in a string of phone calls. He called her a "c**t" and threatened to "sort her out", local media report.

"He said he would take a replacement from the shelf and she would not be able to stop him," crown prosecutor Stipe Drinovac told the court.

The store owner then joined the manager to pre-emptively remove all vibrators from the wall of the shop.

Pellicaan returned to the store and yelled "where are the other toys?" before throwing a sex toy at a shelf, the prosecution said.

The sales manager approached the irate customer and handed him his original purchase, repeating that no fault had been found with the toy.

Pellicaan threw the vibrator in the manager's direction and it bounced off a cabinet and hit her lower left leg, the court heard.

The frightened manager then pushed a police panic button, prompting more abuse from Pellicaan who also called a visibly upset male employee a "f****t".

Pellicaan eventually left the shop but was later arrested at his home, where he proceeded to verbally abuse a female police officer, the court heard.

He pleaded guilty to threatening violence, committing public nuisance, obstructing police and two counts of using a carriage service to cause offence.

On Thursday Judge Gary Long sentenced him to four months' jail, suspended for two years.

He was also placed on probation for 18 months and given a $200 good behaviour bond for two years.

The exact brand and model of the vibrator that provoked Pellicaan's violent outburst has not been identified.
