Canberra confirmed Scott had been stood down in a statement on Monday.
The club stated the centre would be stood down from all club duties as the NRL Integrity unit investigate.
“The club has informed the NRL Integrity Unit and is working with them to investigate the incident,” the statement rad.
“Until the investigation is complete Curtis has been stood down from all club duties.
‘The Raiders will be making no further comment on the issue until the investigation is complete.”
The incident reportedly took place before midnight on Sunday, May 30.
According to The Daily Telegraph, the man is believed to have suffered a broken nose and concussion.
ACT Police were not involved in the incident and Scott has not been charged, according to the News Corp report.
Last year, police prosecutor Rebecca Becroft dropped five charges, including two counts of assaulting police and one count of resisting arrest, after Scott was arrested following drunken Australia Day celebrations at the Ivy nightclub in Sydney.
Scott pleaded guilty to two lesser charges, but was cleared of the more serious allegations that he had assaulted two police officers after he was found passed out underneath a tree at Moore Park.
The police were ordered to pay $100,792.30 in Scott’s legal costs following the nine-month ordeal.
