Yet More Legal Trouble For Scott Harrison

by David P. Greisman

It may be a new year, but it’s still old news for Scott Harrison.

That’s because the former featherweight titleholder is once again in legal trouble, this time for a pair of alleged incidents involving a former girlfriend.

Harrison appeared in court on New Year’s Eve, a day after allegedly “forcing his way” inside the woman’s home and “shouting, swearing, damaging a TV and scaring his ex-girlfriend,” according to Scotland newspaper The Evening Times.

He was freed on bail and ordered not to go inside the woman’s home, nor to have any contact with her.

But then Harrison and the woman were at the same party on Jan. 1. And Harrison is accused of “repeatedly shouting, refusing to leave and making threats of violence” toward the woman, according to the newspaper.

He was once again been released on bail.

Meanwhile, Harrison was sentenced in late 2012 to four more years behind bars for an assault case dating back to 2007, according to British newspaper The Scotsman.

The 35-year-old was found guilty of being part of a group that assaulted three men at a Spanish brothel all those years ago.

He was just released from prison in September 2011 after spending two and a half years there for an incident in which he assaulted a police officer and another man and attempted to steal a car.

He had last fought in November 2005 before returning this past June. Harrison won that fight, and came out victorious again in September, bringing his record to 27-2-2 with 15 knockouts.
