Curtis Scott, the former Raiders bad boy, has been arrested on domestic violence charges. Police will assume that the 24-year-old assaulted a woman he knows several times in 2018. Scott was charged while playing a round of golf at Sutherland Shire in Sydney. Wednesday afternoon, following an investigation that began in November 2021. He is due to appear in court next Wednesday on conditional bail. “A man has been charged following an investigation into historical alleged crimes of domestic violence,” a statement from NSW Police said. “In November 2021, detectives from Sutherland Shire Police Area Command began an investigation into reports of domestic violence allegedly occurring in 2018. After extensive investigation, detectives arrested a 24-year-old man on a golf course off Barden Ridge yesterday (Wednesday) just before 6 p.m. He was taken to Sutherland Police Station where he was charged with two counts of willfully asphyxiating a person with recklessness, two counts of assault which actually caused bodily harm, stalking/harassment with intent to cause physical harm etc. (domestic) and three counts of ordinary assault (DV). “Police will allege in court that in 2018 the man assaulted a woman known to him several times. “The Bonnet Bay man has been released on parole and is due to appear in Sutherland court next Wednesday (January 12, 2022). ).” MORE CANBERRA SPORTS: This week’s arrest is the latest in a string of off-field incidents that have plagued the ex-NRL player who was sacked by the Raiders in August, less than halfway through a four-year deal with the club for his involvement at a fight at a nightspot in Canberra earlier in the year. CCTV footage obtained by The Canberra Times in June shows Scott punching a man just before midnight on May 30, an incident believed to have broken the victim’s nose. Scott was given a violation statement and a $15,000 fine by the NRL before the Raiders board decided to tear his contract. In November, he was reportedly on the cusp of securing a rugby league lifeline with Parramatta, before his ex-girlfriend lodged a complaint with NSW police and the NRL, ultimately leading to Wednesday’s arrest. Nearly two years ago, he was arrested by police in Sydney’s Moore Park and charged with multiple offences. The Raiders stood steadfastly behind their new signing and his name was effectively cleared in September 2020 when police CCTV footage showed Scott had been tasered while under arrest. When he was fired from Canberra, it was also revealed that Scott had had a fistfight with former teammate John Bateman after a team function in 2020.
