Police unhappy with governing body’s handling of arrested rugby league star

Police are said to be unhappy with how the NRL has handled the situation surrounding the exiled Curtis Scott.

Scott was arrested last week and charged with four counts of assault following allegations made by his ex-partner Tay-Leiha Clark.

But, police are apparently upset with the NRL’s dealings according to the Wide World of Sports’ The Molehe reported that Clark told the NRL Integrity Unit about the offences Scott has now been charged with, but that the 24-year-old was able to roam free and even sign for a new club.

That follows a report from News Corp claiming the NRL was not made aware of any assault claims until this week.

A senior police source involved in Scott’s case has criticised the NRL’s lack of action, after claiming that the governing body’s Integrity Unit were aware of the assault allegations.

“The NRL and the Integrity Unit let the alleged victim down very badly,” the source told WWOS.

“They needed to be better and give the alleged victim more support.

“It was simply not good enough.”

Scott has been charged with two counts of intentionally choke person with recklessness, two counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm, stalk/intimidate intend fear physical etc harm (domestic), and three counts of common assault (DV).

The 24-year-old will face court tomorrow, but his deal with the Parramatta Eels has since been shelved, leaving Scott in NRL limbo.
