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).
