Canberra Raiders centre Curtis Scott is still carrying scars from his horrifying unlawful arrest following Australia Day celebrations, which is why his lawyer thinks he deserves $400,000 in damages. Sam Macedone expected proceedings for the claim against NSW Police to begin in February. Scott was pepper sprayed and tasered after the police woke him up under a tree in Sydney's Moore Park. He'd been out celebrating with teammates. He not only spent the night in jail following his terrifying ordeal - all of which was captured on the police's own body camera footage - but he lost a sponsor and it affected his NRL form to the point he was dropped from the Raiders team.
