Columbus Short Arrested at His Album Release Party

Columbus Short was taken into custody at his album release party at Infusion Lounge on Tuesday night (August 18) in Los Angeles.

The 32-year-old former Scandal star was apprehended by bounty hunters on what was first falsely reported as a failure to appear in court.

Columbus Short was arrested last evening, August 18, 2015 by bounty hunters at Universal Studios City Walk in Los Angeles,” his rep told JustJared.com. “His arrest was NOT due to an outstanding warrant as was erroneously reported. It appears that this is a citizens arrest as a result of an issue between Mr. Short and his bail bondsman. The reported bail amount of $500,000 is also inaccurate. No additional information is available at this time.”

Columbus was arrested back in March 2014 on spousal battery charges before being arrested again in July for public intoxication and August of last year for a failure to appear in court.

He recently opened up about his struggles with cocaine.
