Curtis Scott accuses police of misconduct during Moore Park incident

Outside court, Scott’s lawyer Danny Eid said he would be defending each charge “to the last breath”.

“The police clearly misunderstood their powers and there is a significant concern about the manner upon which police conducted themselves, and we will flesh it out in due course,” Mr Eid said.

“Mr Scott is not guilty of all charges.”

Mr Eid said Scott’s defence would be relying heavily on body-worn videos by police on the night.

“At the end of the day, this is a man who has never been charged with any criminal matter,” Eid said. “He’s got no criminal convictions.”

Scott appeared alongside family members to have the bail variation made and remained silent at the back of the courtroom.

Scott was given the week off from training with the Raiders while his case continues and is expected to return on Monday. NRL boss Todd Greenberg is expected to make the call as to whether the 22-year-old will be stood down under the league’s no-fault stand down rule next week.

“There is nothing, in my opinion, to stop him from going back to training and I hope the NRL integrity commission would seriously consider the matter properly, and not just on a set of police facts which we say is contextually false,” Eid said.

Mr Eid said he was “concerned” by Greenberg’s impending decision, which would threaten Scott’s fresh four-year contract with the Raiders.

“I am concerned that a decision in the short term would be made that may not reflect the evidence that will be borne out in due course,” he said.
