Alleged domestic violence perpetrator Curtis Scott is set to be sacked – without even playing a game.
Scott, who was getting ready to play golf with his new partner when he was arrested, was taken to Sutherland Police Station just days before pre-season at his new club the Parramatta Eels was set to continue following the Christmas break.
The charges against the 24-year-old include two counts of intentionally trying to choke a 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) against a former ‘childhood sweetheart’, according to 9 News.
Scott has also been told not to turn up for the first day of pre-season training with the Eels, the club confirmed to 9 News, and now it’s been reported by Fox Sports that he may not even get the chance to don the shirt at all.
On the field, Scott has had mixed results, but he was part of the Melbourne Grand Final-winning side back in 2017 as well as being part of the Storm side that lost in the year after to the Sydney Roosters.
Both police and the NRL had known for years about the allegations of domestic violence, but Scott’s former partner had not acted on them – until now.
Scott is already set to sue police for wrongful arrest following an incident back in 2020, whilst he was arrested for a nightclub brawl last year.
He has been granted conditional bail and will appear in court next week.
