Columbus Short and Another ‘Scandalous’ Headline

The 4th of July is full of festive celebrations. Yet, somehow ex-Scandal actor Columbus Short cut his party short and ended up wearing tight bracelets… again. Over the weekend, while having a night out at the Katy Trail Ice House in Dallas, the controversial and troubled actor was reportedly arrested for public intoxication. According to a report in the New York Daily News, Short also allegedly got caught trying to skip out on paying the bill and found himself surrounded by security guards.

At this point in the altercation, Short’s temper rises, the “race card” gets played and a fight breaks out. Off- duty cops break up the scuffle — only to be attacked by the actor. Police arrested him shortly afterward.

This 2 a.m. drama would mark the fourth arrest for Short this year. His name topped the headlines when he allegedly assaulted a guy at an engagement party he attended in March. He has been arrested twice for alleged domestic violence; in April, his wife filed a restraining order after claiming he held a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her and then himself.

One has to wonder if Columbus ever plans to get a job in Hollywood again.

Something troubling is brewing in his world and it seems like it is only a matter of time before he fully self-destructs.
