The NRL is set to lay eyes on the footage which could make or break Canberra Raiders centre Curtis Scott's immediate NRL future in the coming days.
NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg gave Scott's legal team a 5pm Monday deadline to provide police body-camera footage of his arrest or face being stood down.
If the NRL did not receive footage by the deadline, Greenberg was willing to rely on the police charge sheet and Scott's plea to make a decision.
But Scott's legal team wrote to the NRL on Sunday afternoon confirming they would be able to release the footage to the NRL in the coming days.
Scott pleaded not guilty to six charges - including two counts of assaulting a police officer - when he faced court in Sydney.
It is expected Greenberg will be able to view the footage by the end of the week with no decision on Scott's playing future to be made until he has done so.
The 22-year-old's lawyer Danny Eid had initially refused requests to hand over footage, saying the legal team did not have permission from the NSW police to do so.
But circumstances have changed and now NRL officials will get a chance to see for themselves what transpired during Scott's arrest in the early hours of January 27.
Eid said they would fight the charges "to the last breath" and the allegations were "contextually false".
Yet Greenberg has still threatened to keep Scott on the sidelines in the immediate future despite the charges not hitting the threshold required for the NRL's no-fault stand down policy.
Scott is due to return to court on March 20, seven days after Canberra's season opener against the Gold Coast Titans on March 13.
His off-field indiscretions are a frustrating subplot to the Green Machine's pre-season as they look to avenge grand final heartbreak.
The former Melbourne Storm centre joined the Raiders late last year and was set to play a key role for a Canberra outfit which had bid farewell to Joey Leilua and Jordan Rapana.
Now Raiders coach Ricky Stuart finds himself hunting for a new right edge combination with Nick Cotric firming for a move to centre.
Scott's alleged incident occurred following Australia Day celebrations with teammates in Sydney.
He fell asleep in parklands near the SCG and was allegedly tasered and arrested by police before spending the night in jail.
There is some good news on the horizon for the Raiders with five-eighth Jack Wighton closing in on a multi-million dollar four-year contract extension with the club.
The deal is all but done with Wighton knocking back the chance to go elsewhere and opting to stay under the tutelage of Stuart in the capital.
