As we reported recently, “Scandal” actor Columbus Short allegedly got into a pretty nasty bar brawl recently, and he allegedly beat a man unconscious over remarks made about his wife.

But now it’s being reported that an arrest warrant is out now for the actor and he is in some serious trouble. TMZ reports:

Now a judge has issued a warrant for Short’s arrest on one count of felony aggravated battery. It’s a felony because of serious bodily injury.

The charge carries a maximum sentence of four years in state prison. As of this post, Short has not turned himself in.

His bond has been set at $50,000.



Interestingly enough, TMZ is also reporting that Columbus has a very violent past that caused him to be placed on probation before the bar fight. However, most of his violent past actually involves his wife:

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.

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.


  1. Now I give him a pass for beating the hell out of that man for talking about his wife, but it sounds like Columbus may have some serious anger issues.

  2. I’m speechless. I had no idea he had all these issues. And this is a bad time for him to be going to jail. He’s on a hit show and this could really hurt his career. Smh.

  3. He is certainly a handsome Black man, but his dignified posture perhaps belies a beastly lower ego…we’ll have to see. all can be forgiven. we all have our flaws. Pray his character improves.

    In the meantime, see how Yonce really gets down and the truth behind that line: “all the girls in here gotta LICK me up and down”
