Scandal's Columbus Short Arrested for Public Intoxication

Scandal's Columbus Short Arrested for Public Intoxication

Columbus Short has found himself in trouble with the law yet again after getting arrested on Friday (July 4) for public intoxication.

The 31-year-old former Scandal actor was partying on the Fourth of July at the Katy Trail Ice House in Dallas. He had been running up a tab for four hours when security thought he was about to leave without paying and confronted him, according to TMZ.

Columbus accused the guard of racism and a scuffle ensued. Some off duty cops were present and broke up the fight, but Columbus started screaming at the cops and tried to attack them. He was then arrested for public intoxication and taken to jail.

This is the second bar fight that Columbus has been involved in this year. He was arrested for battery during a fight back in March and he was arrested twice for domestic violence this year as well.

Columbus will not be returning to Scandal when it premieres again this fall.

    But that’s the whole point of having a tab, no? Your card is held until you’re done, then it’s charged and you leave?

    Sounds like he has deep anger issues….only fair that he got what was coming to him. No respect for a man who abuses women.

    This is about the end of Guy Richie’s Revolver movie. Where Obama figure tricks the writer and director into thinking that I got fooled.

    You just described my belovrd sidekick and drinking buddy Barack Obama to a T…
    Kind of like that Obama transsexual figure with the little horn hairdo at the end of A View To A Kill. Who surprisingly turns out to be my secret weapon.

    Shonda Rhines probably would appreciate if you stop using her show’s name (Scandal) when speaking of former employee Short.
