One of the former stars of the ABC drama series "Scandal" has been arrested. TMZ.com reports that off-duty officers in Dallas broke up a fight Friday apparently involving Columbus Short, who was arrested for alleged public intoxication.
Short was arrested after a security guard approached the actor, as it appeared he was leaving a Dallas restaurant without paying his bill. Short started screaming, accusing the guard of racism, and a scuffle broke out, the story reports.
Short is dealing with other legal issues, as we reported previously. He pleaded not guilty in May to a felony battery charge, and left “Scandal” in April after his wife claimed domestic abuse.
