Columbus Short has been arrested for the 4th time in 4 months after getting into a drunken bar fight with a security guard and cops on Independence Day.
According to several reports, the fired Scandal star was boozing it up in a popular Dallas, Texas bar in celebration of the Fourth of July until he got completely wasted. Then he got up to leave without paying his bill.
So a security guard approached him over the issue … and that was when Short shouting, accusing the guard, a black man, of being racist.
Then a scuffle ensued, which was later broken up by several off-duty policemen who work at the bar every weekend. That was when Short turned his attention on the cops and tried to fight them … leading to his arrest for public intoxication.
He is still in jail.
This year alone, Short has been arrested for knocking out a guy during a bar fight, and twice for domestic violence. All these incidents led to his firing from Scandal.
