Former “Scandal” star Columbus Short is in trouble with the law yet again. Short was arrested in Dallas, Tex. Thursday (July 4) after fighting with a security guard at a bar.
TMZ reports Short looked like he was trying to leave Katy Trail Ice House without paying his tab after four hours that included a lot of drinking. When a guard approached him, an argument ensued where Short accused the guard, a black man, of racism.
A group of off-duty cops who work at the bar broke up the scuffle, but it’s reported that the actor then tried to attack the cops, leading to his arrest. It’s the second bar fight of the year for Short, who was arrested for brawling in a Los Angeles bar in March.
After his wife alleged in April that he threatened to kill her and himself, Short eventually announced he had exited “Scandal.”
