Tasmanian detectives travelled to Melbourne to speak to Scott, who is alleged to have kicked a security guard during North Melbourne’s clash with Richmond on May 13, according to the ABC.
Scott has previously been asked about the incident, however he has refrained from making comment due to the matter being under investigation by police.
“Things will come out in the wash-up, all I can say is I absolutely welcome an investigation and look forward to putting the facts into the story,” Scott is quoted as saying by the Herald Sun.
“We’re all aware that there has been some allegations made. Unfortunately … there will be a police investigation now, so while I’d love to answer all your questions and give you a full version of events, and actually tell you what happened, I can’t.”
The Kangaroos currently sit 12th on the AFL ladder with a 4-4 record and face a tough test against Collingwood at the MCG on Sunday.
According to the Herald Sun’s report, Scott is expected to front the media on Thursday for a pre-match press conference.
