Jail for friend attack


AVICIOUS thug who knifed his friend and then kicked him as he lay helpless on the ground has been caged fo r 3 9 months.

The High Court i n Glasgow heard the violent attack in a Clydebank street on May 26 took place just hours after Kevin Meikle, 18, had appeared at Dumbarton Sheriff Court.

Meikle, who was in his sister’s flat in Burns Street, launched the unprovoked attack on his pal Scott McGarry, 19, following a row.

Sentencing Meikle, temporary judge Sean Murphy QC said: “It is no thanks to you the victim made a good recovery for you stabbed and kicked him as he lay on the ground for a number of minutes.”

Meikle had earlier been put on probation after police found a photo of him on Bebo posing with a meat cleaver.
