Columbus Short arrested for public intoxication
Former “Scandal” star Columbus Short is arrested yet again. Only this time, the 31-year-old star was arrested on Friday, in Dallas, Texas, for public intoxication.
According to authorities at the Dallas Police Department, Short had a little too much to drink at a local hot spot, the Katy Trail Ice House, and tried to leave without paying his tab. When approached by a bouncer in regards to the bill, Short became irate and starting screaming.
An eyewitness tells TMZ that Short accused the bouncer, who was also African American, of being racist. After a few words and a short scuffle, cops arrived on the scene and hauled Short to jail.
While it was reported that Short attacked the bouncer, he was only charged with public intoxication. This is just the latest scandal for the troubled actor, who was arrested earlier this year and charged with felony battery after getting into a bar fight. He was also reportedly busted twice for domestic violence, which led Short’s wife to file for divorce.
As previously reported, last week, Short was ordered to pay $17,005 a month in spousal support to his estranged wife, Tanee McCall, as well as $4,542 a month in child support and $25,000 in legal fees after being a no-show to a mandatory court hearing. – ruthie hawkins/@ruubabie
