Remember when Columbus Short was a “gladiator in a suit” and one of the fan favorite characters on Scandal? Well, now he’s getting arrested at his album release party.
Short was picked up in a club at Universal Studios City Walk in Los Angeles … just as he was about to do a soundcheck.
It seems Short was arrested because he failed to appear in one of his domestic violence cases and the judge issued a bench warrant.
In the video, Short is arguing with one of the bounty hunters … saying they freaked him out and he was afraid for his life.
We’re told the bounty hunters were there because they’ll get a cut of his $500,000 bail. We’re told the bounty hunters swooped in because they believed Short was about to flee the county.
Columbus Short has an album? Yeah, same thing everyone is asking, surely.
Also, it was allegedly a “citizen’s arrest” due to a dispute with his bail bondsman.
The struggle is real.
