Former ‘Scandal’ actor Columbus Short arrested in Texas

TEXAS — Former “Scandal” actor Columbus Short has again found himself accused of being on the wrong side of the law.

Dallas police arrested Short around 2 a.m. Saturday for public intoxication at the address for Katy Trail Ice House, a “beer garden” and restaurant, police spokesman Warren Mitchell said.

Mitchell had no information immediately on whether, or when, Short, 31, was released from custody.

Short’s publicist did not immediately a return a CNN inquiry Saturday for comment.

The actor was arrested in March after being accused of punching and knocking out a patron at a West Los Angeles restaurant. He later pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of battery in that case.

And in April, Short’s wife accused him of threatening to kill her and himself with a knife.

Tanee Short filed for both a restraining order, to keep him from her and their 2-year-old daughter, and for a divorce to end their nine-year marriage.

Shortly thereafter, Columbus Short announced he would not be returning to the hit ABC series “Scandal.”
