Canberra player Curtis Scott has had the more serious charges of his legal matter thrown out after a magistrate declared his arrest on the Australia Day weekend "unlawful".
Scott was handcuffed and arrested by police at Moore Park while sitting under a tree before he was pepper-sprayed and Tasered.

Scott will now be sentenced at a later date for the two offences to which he had previously pleaded guilty.
He was handed two charged of "public nuisance" after kicking a bike and throwing a phone at a car in Paddington just after midnight, prior to falling asleep under the tree at Moore Park.
