Canberra Raiders centre Curtis Scott could receive a six-figure payout as his legal team seeks compensation for his Australia Day arrest. His lawyer Sam Macedone confirmed on Monday Scott was taking legal action against the NSW Police for the "unlawful" arrest at Sydney's Moore Park in the early hours of January 27, with a statement of claim to be issued in the coming weeks. Scott was in September cleared of seven charges, including two for assaulting a police officer, relating to the incident after camera footage of the arrest was shown in court. The vision showed Scott being handcuffed, pepper sprayed and then tasered after he'd fallen asleep under a tree in Centennial Park. If the civil action was successful, Macedone said the damages would be in the vicinity of six figures.
