Either Olivia Pope couldn't convince her gladiator to evade the authorities or she told him it's better to turn yourself in than to wait for the police to get you!
Let's go with the latter.
On Wednesday, a judge issued a warrant for Columbus Short's arrest after authorities investigated the alleged bar fight that occurred on March 15th.
After the warrant was issued, the Scandal star decided to turn himself in to authorities that same day.
The Claremont Police Department confirmed the actor turned himself in and has been released from custody after posting the bail that was set at $50,000.
Let's hope this is the last time
Harrison Columbus gets into this sort of trouble.
You're at the top of your game! Don't let these scandalous incidents take you down!
