Curtis Scott's NRL career hangs in the balance after CCTV footage emerged of what is believed to be the Canberra Raiders centre involved in a fight at Kokomo's nightclub last Sunday.
Footage obtained by The Canberra Times shows Scott talking to a man in a white T-shirt just before midnight on May 30.
Another man walks over as Scott, who had been drinking, appears to become agitated.
Scott then appears to punch the second man, who was believed to have suffered a broken nose and concussion, several times before he's restrained and removed from the venue.
It's unclear what set Scott off and made him angry at the two men.
ACT Policing weren't called to the scene and they had no record of the incident in their system.
The Raiders were aware of the incident, but did not return The Canberra Times' calls.
Canberra's board would decide on any disciplinary action required.
But they've been strong on player misbehaviour in the past, sacking Josh Dugan and Todd Carney for off-field indiscretions.
The NRL were aware of the incident and their integrity unit was investigating.
This wasn't the first time Scott's behaviour has raised eyebrows at Kokomo's.

But it's believed as a result this latest incident the Canberra nightclub has issued an informal ban on Raiders players from attending the venue.
It's Scott's second late-night incident within 18 months after NSW police unlawfully arrested him in Sydney's Moore Park following Australia Day celebrations last year.
The 23-year-old was arrested and then assaulted by police after falling asleep under a tree.
Police handcuffed, pepper sprayed and tasered Scott in a harrowing ordeal. A magistrate later threw out all charges.
Police were forced to pay $100,000 in legal fees and Scott then sued them for damages.
The Raiders hierarchy were one of Scott's biggest backers at the time, but it's unclear whether that support will continue.
It's further unwanted drama for the Raiders, whose season has gone from bad to worse.
They released homesick halfback George Williams two weeks amid a form slump of just one win from their past eight games - slipping to 14th on the NRL ladder.
There have also been signs of player unrest with Joe Tapine's wife taking pot shots at Raiders coach Ricky Stuart on social media, while star hooker Josh Hodgson stood down from the co-captaincy.
Hodgson also came out in defence of Williams, which some took as a dig at the club - something Hodgson has since denied.
