Curtis Scott pleads not guilty to charges from incident with police

Canberra centre Curtis Scott has pleaded not guilty to six charges in court on Friday following his arrest after an incident with police in the early hours of Monday morning.

After appearing at Sydney’s Downing Centre, Scott’s lawyer said they would fight to their “last breath” the accusations that he assaulted police.

NRL CEO Todd Greenberg will brief the ARL Commission next Thursday on the young star's immediate playing future.

Scott is expected to return to Raiders training next week after being given time off by the club since his arrest on Monday.

Greenberg could use his discretionary power under the NRL rules to stand down Scott until his court proceedings are finalised.

He will brief the ARLC at next Thursday's board meeting on a possible course of action following an ongoing investigation by the NRL Integrity Unit.

Scott was already not being considered for the NRL Nines in Perth on February 14-15, while Canberra's only pre-season trial is on February 29 against Canterbury in Port Macquarie.

His case is next due for mention at the Downing Centre on March 20, a week after the Raiders' season kicks off against the Titans in Canberra.

Scott was accompanied in court by family members and Raiders welfare officer Andrew Bishop.
