A man working as a security guard at the Kangaroos’ clash with Richmond in Hobart on Saturday complained to police that he was assaulted by a club official believed to be Scott.
Tasmania Police released a short statement on Tuesday afternoon.
“The incident occurred around 2.35pm and involved a man who was working as a security guard and a person believed to be a North Melbourne official,” the statement read according to AFL.com.au.
The Kangaroos released a statement on Monday night, saying they were searching for further information in regards to the alleged incident.
“The North Melbourne Football Club is aware of the claims made by a security guard at Blundstone Arena,” the statement read.
“The club is gathering all available information in order to prepare a response.
“No further comment can be made at this time.”
The Kangaroos enjoyed a strong win over the Tigers in Hobart.
A barnstorming third quarter by Scott’s side set them up for a 35-point win, despite the deficit being just six points at half-time.
