Thug punched Doorman after being knocked back from Glasgow bar

A THUG punched a bouncer after being knocked back from a Glasgow bar.

Dean Watt and two of his pals were refused entry into Bag O Nails, in Partick, due to appearing to be too drunk.

Watt left the main door entrance and walked towards the side door – where another bouncer, Asif Ali, was covering.

The security worker approached Watt, but the thug punched Mr Ali twice to the head.

Watt and the other two people left.

However, they returned shortly after – and Watt was seen throwing a traffic cone across the road.

He then challenged Mr Ali to a fight.

Police were called and officers were unable to trace the 30-year-old.

But Mr Ali and his colleague stopped Watt themselves, and he struggled violently.

Different officers arrived and Watt, from Govan, was arrested.

He refused to provide his name, date of birth and address to cops, and was taken to Clydebank police office where he was cautioned and charged.

Watt appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court for sentencing after previously admitting to the assault that took place earlier this year on February 26.

Sheriff Patricia Pryce pointed out that he can’t complete unpaid work due to an injury.

Watt’s lawyer replied: “He’s fractured his neck and has to go back to the hospital in five weeks’ time.”

The defence solicitor said his client would comply with a restriction of liberty order (ROLO) and asked if this could be imposed at his partner’s address.

But the sheriff revealed Watt has a serious domestic offence on his record and replied: “I’m willing to impose a ROLO and supervision but not to his partner’s address. He can remain at his current address or go to jail.”

The lawyer confirmed Watt would comply with the tag at his current address – which is his uncle’s home.

Sheriff Pryce told him: “You need to address this type of offending. You’re going to end up causing serious damage to someone.

“Given the serious domestic offending conviction, I’m not prepared to do the ROLO at your partner’s address.”

He was tagged and ordered to stay within his address from 7pm-7am for 20 weeks.
