A 33-year-old man has been granted bail after allegedly causing a disturbance outside the Christchurch High Court following the appearance of the man allegedly behind the March mosque shootings.
A police spokeswoman confirmed Rodrick Wayne Woods was charged with disorderly behaviour. He appeared from custody at Christchurch District Court on Friday afternoon.
The charge carries a maximum penalty of a $1000 fine.

Woods was granted bail and will return to court on June 28 to enter a plea.
Judge Tom Gilbert told Woods he was not to go within 50m of either Masjid Al Noor or Linwood Mosque.
He also must stay at least 500m away from the Christchurch courthouse on August 16 when the alleged gunman reappears in court.
The alleged gunman, a 28-year-old Australian man, appeared in court via video link from prison on Friday.
Local media, including Stuff and NZME, report loud music was being played by a man through a portable speaker outside the court following the hearing. One publication described it as "Nazi music".
It is alleged he then made racist comments towards two survivors from the terror attack.
"If it was a normal time it would be OK, but after the court, the anger had built up," survivor Abdul Aziz told Stuff.
The alleged gunman pleaded not guilty to all charges after making his third appearance in court on Friday.
His trial is expected to commence on May 4 next year.
