JUST days before he was due to make his boxing come-back, a former world champion, who released from Malaga jail last year, was arrested after a drunken rampage in a supermarket near Glasgow.
Scott Harrison, 35, allegedly verbally abused staff and stole food with another man, as well as urinating on a window, according to the Scottish press.
This came just 20 days after he announced he’d stopped drinking and was planning on relaunching his boxing career with a fight due to be held in Blackpool.
Following the events, he apologised to his family, his fiancée and children.
Harrison was freed from jail in Malaga in September last year after serving two-and-a-half years for assault.
Prior to entering prison in 2009, he had already spent five weeks at Alhaurin de la Torre Prison when he was first arrested for allegedly stealing a car, assaulting both passenger and driver, and also assaulting a Guardia Civil officer in Alhaurin el Grande in October 2006.
In 2008 he served four months of an eight month sentence at Barlinnie Jail in Glasgow for drunk-driving and assaulting his girlfriend.
His boxing license was revoked and his titles stripped in 2006 after a successful career that saw him win 25 of his 29 fights, with 14 knock outs.
He had paid €28,000 bail to get out of prison in November 2006 to defend his title from Nicky Cook, however, he was found too heavy for his category and the fight was never held.
