Columbus Short has a little bit more in common with his former Scandal character than we knew.
The 31-year-old father was arrested after he skipped out on two court hearings stemming from his criminal domestic violence case. According to TMZ, he was immediately taken into police custody this morning when he showed up “to face the music.”
As we previously reported, Short’s been vacationing in Barbados and that’s why he missed his court dates. Because obviously Barbados is more important. TMZ dishes:
Short has been a wanted man since last month when he failed to appear in his criminal domestic violence case. Short chose to go to Barbados instead. The judge issued an arrest warrant and set bail at $40K. That same judge became enraged earlier this week when Short skipped another hearing … he was still vacationing in Barbados. The judge upped the bail to $500K.
The former “Scandal” star showed up this AM to face the music and was immediately arrested. Now get this … Short had another hearing today in a criminal case involving a bar fight, but he didn’t show because he was in custody. So the judge in the bar fight case issued a SECOND arrest warrant and set bail at $250K.
Dude needs to get it together.
