Columbus Short Is A Little Violent

Columbus Short seems to have a bit of a violent streak in him, and currently has a warrant out for his arrest.

TMZ reports:

“Scandal” star Columbus Short has been arrested MULTIPLE TIMES for VIOLENT behavior … involving women, kids, basketball opponents and random bar people.

1.  Short was arrested for physically attacking his wife in front of his children. The incident occurred back in February at his Woodland Hills home at around 2 AM.  According to legal docs, Short and his wife started arguing and it got physical.  Short’s kids — a 2-year-old and 10-year-old — were watching.  He’s been charged with spousal battery. Prosecutors also charged him with child abuse because of the emotional trauma the kids suffered by watching.  Short pled not guilty on Tuesday.

2.  Short was arrested 2 weeks later in Chatsworth, CA.  According to the police report, Short and his wife got into a heated argument and he allegedly pushed her.

3.  And less than a month later — on March 15 — Short was involved in a bar fight.  TMZ broke the story … Short allegedly cold-cocked a man at an engagement party, breaking his nose and rendering him unconscious.  As we just reported … there is now a warrant out for his arrest in connection with this incident.

4. But there’s more.  We found out Short was prosecuted for a brutal attack on an L.A. basketball court in 2010.  He sucker punched a player, bashing his teeth in and cutting him badly.  Short pled no contest to disturbing the peace.  He had been charged with aggravated battery but that was dismissed.

This is…not a good look.  Like, at all.


Excuse me, but did he knock half of his row of teeth back? Is that what I’m looking at, here?

My word.

LOS ANGELES, CA — Columbus Short, a lead actor on the television series “Scandal,” was arrested Wednesday on a felony charge that he seriously injured a man during an altercation at a restaurant earlier this month.

Short was arrested by police in Claremont on a warrant issued in a case that alleges he committed a battery that caused serious bodily harm.

The actor was involved in a dispute with a man at a West Los Angeles restaurant March 15 before Short hit the man and knocked him out, according to Los Angeles police and prosecutors. Further details about the altercation were not released.

Short, 31, plays attorney Harrison Wright on ABC’s hit series “Scandal.” Records show he was released Wednesday after posting $50,000 bail.

If convicted, Short faces up to four years in state prison. A date for his initial court appearance has not yet been set.

A phone number for Jeff Jacquet, Short’s attorney in another criminal case, had a full voicemail box, and a message sent via fax was not immediately returned.

Short was charged Feb. 14 with misdemeanor spousal battery and has pleaded not guilty in that case. A judge ordered him to stay away from his wife, Tuere Short, at a March 5 court hearing. Records show she filed for divorce last year but dismissed her petition earlier this year.

He’s been charged with a felony.

Given his history, he just may not make it out of this one.

Welp! SMH
