Columbus Short arrested after ducking authorities
The party is over for former “Scandal” actor Columbus Short. After ducking court in Los Angeles for an impromptu visit to Barbados for the J’ouvert Carnival and Crop Over, the 31-year-old actor has been arrested.
According to TMZ, Short was arrested and taken into custody in a Van Nuys, California, courtroom, after ignoring the warrant issued for his arrest last month when he failed to appear in court to face charges for his domestic violence case.
And while Short could have simply turned himself in, he continued to anger the judge by missing an additional hearing this week, resulting in the judge increasing his bond to $500,000.
To make matters worse, Short was due in court today for another hearing in a criminal case involving a bar fight, but was unable to make an appearance due to his arrest. Unfortunately for the Stomp the Yard actor, a second judge issued an additional arrest warrant and set bail at $250,000. –ruthie hawkins/@ruubabie
