On Feb. 16, news broke that Columbus was charged with 2 misdemeanors for domestic violence. Reports claimed that he’d been arrested earlier this month for a dispute with his wife that turned physical. The alleged altercation reportedly occurred in front of a child, leading to a child endangerment charge.
Columbus was allegedly charged for domestic violence back in 2018.
A source told an outlet that Columbus–who once starred in films like Stomp the Yard and This Christmas–has battled drug addiction in the past.
The outlet claimed that, when they reached out to him, Columbus chose not to comment on the matter.
