A thug who broke a colleague's jaw after a row over his work ethic has been ordered to pay him £1,200 compensation.

David McDougall, 33, punched Dalton Miliken at Mortons Rolls bakery in Drumchapel on July 19, 2022.

McDougall, from Clydebank, initially argued with Mr Miliken about his attitude to the job.


He later apologised to Mr Miliken in the locker room but was met with a negative response.

This led to McDougall punching his victim which caused him to stumble back against a locker.

Mr Miliken suffered a broken jaw in two places and required to be fitted with a metal plate.

McDougall previously pleaded guilty at Glasgow Sheriff Court to assaulting Mr Miliken to his severe injury.

When he returned for sentencing, he was ordered to do 240 hours of unpaid work.


He was also put under supervision for 12 months as well as given the compensation order.

The court earlier heard McDougall started his shift at Mortons Rolls with Mr Miliken and another man.

Prosecutor Lauren Sangray said: "Through the shift, Mr Miliken and McDougall began arguing.

"During this, McDougall questioned Mr Miliken's work ethic and asked him 'where the f*** have you been?'"

After the shift, the pair entered the locker room where McDougall apologised for his earlier outburst.

Mr Miliken replied: "I don't want your apology, p****."

Miss Sangray added: "McDougall went towards him and punched him once on the left side of his face causing him to stumble back into a locker.

"Neither men said anything to each other and they all left."

Mr Miliken attended hospital later that day where he was found to have broken his jaw in two places.

Miss Sangray said: "He required two metal plates to be fixed in his jaw.

"He remained in hospital and was discharged two days later."
