Officers who handcuffed, pepper sprayed and tasered Curtis Scott let down the NSW Police force says Raiders coach Ricky Stuart, who has thrown his support behind the star recruit in the wake of this week's legal proceedings. Seven charges against Scott, including five for assaulting police, were dropped after explosive vision was played in court which showed the arresting officers' treatment of the 22-year-old. After waking Scott, who was asleep in the early hours of January 27 underneath a Moore Park tree, police handcuffed the Raiders centre and then reduced him to tears with pepper spray. He was then tasered before the officers filed charges against Scott, claiming they had been assaulted. "I believe those police officers have let a lot of good police officers down in regards to their actions towards Curtis Scott," Stuart said in a passionate defence of his player on Friday morning.
