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. He was a rising star, could have been up for many roles. Let's hope he puts this all behind him. He gets his life in order and he gets back to what he's good at. His recent headlines make you wonder where he is headed, 'Actor Columbus Short has been fired from ‘Scandal’, in light of his real life scandals. The news comes after Columbus was charged with battery for allegedly attacking and threatening to kill his wife.'
