The off-season and calamity in NRL always continue; this time new Canberra Raiders recruit Curtis Scott being arrested in Sydney.
In a NSW Police statement in the early hours of Monday morning, police were notified of an incident in Moore Park.
Scott allegedly kicked and punched an officer in the face, before he was arrested after being tasered.
The rap sheet does not read well for Scott who faces numerous charges as a result of the incident.
He was charged with two counts of assaulting an officer, resisting an officer, behaving in an offensive or indecent manner and entering trust lands are being requested to leave.
It continues another off-season of off-field ruckus, as the NRL reels from yet another incident.
Scott has been granted conditional bail and will face court again on February 20.
The Raiders released a small statement on Scott regarding the incident:
“The Canberra Raiders have been made aware of an incident involving Curtis Scott.
The club has informed the NRL integrity unit and will work with them on the investigation.
The club will be making no further comment.”
