Scotland 'guilty' of assault

Sportal October 9, 2012, 2:11 pm

Carlton best-and-fairest winner Heath Scotland has pleaded guilty to assault from an incident in New South Wales in January.

At a hearing in Albury, Scotland pleaded guilty to one charge of assault causing actual bodily harm, while another charge of common assault was withdrawn.

The 32-year-old was charged following his involvement in a brawl at the Mulwala Ski Club in the early hours of the morning on January 29.

Police alleged Scotland 'king-hit' another man, which left him unconscious. Scotland later told club officials he stepped in to help his brother.

He is likely to face a club-imposed ban when the case is resolved.

Scotland's brother, Brett, pleaded guilty to one count of violent disorder and was convicted and fined $600.

    Why is it when a player assaults another in a pub he is charged ....but if he does it in a game the cops do nothing...even though they have video evidence and the player is in NO danger when playing. And we wonder why our teenagers are getting more violent and MMA is so popular.
