There were days Curtis Scott didn't care if he woke up, with the Canberra Raider opening up on the nightmare his life became this year. The NSW police dragged Scott through the legal system after they arrested him on six charges, including two counts of assaulting police, following Australia Day celebrations that went terribly wrong. But it was the police's own body camera video footage that painted a horrific picture of the constabulary - firstly waking Scott up, who was asleep under a tree in Moore Park, and then pepper spraying and tasering him while he was handcuffed. The magistrate threw the case out with a scathing condemnation of their actions. It led to Scott struggling with his form and getting dropped from the Raiders side as he waited to have his day in court.
