Last time I was all on believing the police. Now I see what a corrupt bunch of idiots NSW police are I honestly think it's 50/50 this all shakes out just like Curtis Scott and they can add another $100k to their $90m in compensation payouts for dishonest, thuggish policing.

I'm curious to know how many police charges are charged then dropped

Seems like they were quick to charge before knowing the facts, and in the case of curtis dug their heels in once they knew who it was

If Tom Starling didn’t have a moustache he could have been accidentally sent to children’s court and let off with a warning.

Plus id say the hindering an officer one would stick and id say tom would plead guity to that but the assault the officer ones my guess get thrown out, it really is a cheap shot charge that comes in play once you make contact with them, in anyway you can be charged for it.

The story on the ABC reads like the cops were called to arrest someone who had already left, so they went looking for someone else to arrest. A "cut on the hand" of a police officer is being called assault and four people were arrested. I don't see it as being anything to worry about, bored cops looking for a fight and they found one.

Canberra Raiders player Tom Starling charged with assaulting police after brawl on NSW Central Coast

When police arrived, they were told the patron had left, so officers conducted a business inspection at the location," police sad.

"While inside, police assisted security who were involved in an altercation with another patron who had allegedly failed to leave the premises.

"The 19-year-old man was arrested and while he was being escorted from the venue, police will allege three other men — aged 20, 22 and 24 — became aggressive and assaulted police numerous times in an attempt to intervene.

Raiders star denies throwing a punch as cops claim he grabbed at officer’s gun

Canberra Raiders NRL hooker Tom Starling claims he was bashed while being arrested for assaulting police and denies he threw a punch or intentionally acted aggressively during a brawl with bouncers.

But police allege Starling grabbed at an officer’s pistol before they punched him when he tried to intervene when his brother was being kicked out of the Shady Palms restaurant in Avoca Beach on Saturday night. A police source said officers punched Starling when he tried to grab at the gun. But 22-year-old Starling, who emerged from the incident with cuts and bruises to his face, told the Raiders he was bashed by police.
