Scott Harrison: Old Charges Could Mean New Prison Time

by David P. Greisman

Granted, former featherweight titleholder Scott Harrison hasn’t stayed out of trouble since his release from prison last year — but it is actually his past that could come back to haunt him even more.

Harrison is set to stand trial in Spain this coming September on charges that date back to 2007, when he allegedly assaulted three men in a brothel, according to Scotland’s The Daily Record.

“Prosecutors want him jailed for two years for each of the three counts of assault he is charged with,” the report said.

Harrison had once faced eight years in a Spanish prison for a 2006 incident in which he assaulted a police officer and another man and attempted to steal a car. Instead, he entered a guilty plea that meant he’d serve two and a half years behind bars there.

He was released in September. Since then, he hasn’t eluded trouble.

Harrison 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.

And he was arrested again earlier this month for an alleged domestic assault, the newspaper reported.

He’s set to return on June 29, per the most recent article. That will be his first (legal) fight since November 2005, when he outpointed Nedal Hussein, bringing his record to 25-2-2 (14 knockouts).

Prison is the best place for him.
