Scott Harrison Arrested Again; Alleged Domestic Assault

by David P. Greisman

Former featherweight titleholder and regular troublemaker Scott Harrison has been arrested again, this time for an alleged May 6 domestic assault, according to Scotland newspaper The Daily Record.

Police did not identify Harrison by name, but did tell the newspaper that a 34-year-old man “was liberated pending further investigation, and did not appear in court.”

Harrison, 34, was released from prison in September after spending two and a half years behind bars for a 2006 incident in which he assaulted a police officer and another man and attempted to steal a car.

He was arrested this past March for allegedly “verbally abusing staff, stealing food and urinating on a window” at 2:30 a.m. at a supermarket in Rutherglen, Scotland, according to The Daily Record.

Harrison was to have his first comeback fight in March. Instead, he’s slated to fight June 8, according to the report, stepping into the ring for the first time since November 2005, when he outpointed Nedal Hussein. Harrison’s record is 25-2-2 (14 knockouts).

It's sad that he is always in trouble. He wants to fight and earn a living FFS, let him. He is like a dog, if you don't walk him he chews your door.

It's not Spring until the flowers bloom and Scott Harrison is back in jail.

I saw that headline in the paper and didn't even bother reading the story, it's just another case of him being a moron. Just throw him back behind bars and save everyone the hassle.

[QUOTE=Drunk Punch;12107958]When you look up the word [I]loser[/I] in the dictionary there should be a picture of Scott Harrison, and a print out of his criminal record. [B] His demon is himself. Alcohol just helps the mask slip off more…
