The drama just seems to follow actor Columbus Short. On Friday, the former Scandal actor landed in jail after an alleged bar scuffle. According to TMZ, the 31-year-old was arrested in Dallas, after he was involved in an alleged physical fight with a bar security guard.
Reportedly, he was drinking at Katy Trail Ice House for four hours during the Fourth of July holiday before leaving without paying his tab. Allegedly, he was stopped by a security guard, and accused the employee of racism, resulting in a fight. He was then arrested for public intoxication and taken to jail.
This incident, coupled with other allegations that involve Short are endless. Last month, he was ordered to pay $21,000 in spousal support and child support to his estranged wife Tanee Short. In February he was charged with a misdemeanor spousal battery.
In April, he announced his departure from ABC’s Scandal, after he allegedly attacked a man at a bar. Columbus has yet to comment on the July 4th incident.
