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.

Scandal's Columbus Short Replaced by Eric West? Shonda Rhimes Says Nope!

Despite some news that just broke that an actor named Eric West would be replacing Columbus Short on the hit series Scandal, we can confirm that it is all untrue.

On the season finale of the show, it is unclear whether Columbus‘ character Harrison Wright has been killed off or is still alive. After it was confirmed that he will not be returning to the series, most fans presumed the worst for the character.

“I’ve never heard of Eric West. Harrison is not being recast EVER. How about reporters CHECK THEIR SOURCES before running with a story?” creator Shonda Rhimes tweeted after the false story broke.

I have enjoyed every single minute of it,” the 31-year-old actor, who played Harrison, shared in a statement to EW.

Columbus added, “Everything must come to an end and unfortunately the time has come for Harrison Wright to exit the canvas.
