Why can't Columbus Short just stay out of trouble?
On Tuesday night, the former Scandal star was arrested on a bench warrant because he failed to show up to a recent court case over a very serious issue — domestic abuse.

The case centers around an incident that occurred in April 2014 with the actor's wife, Tanee Short, who alleges that Columbus threatened his AND her life with a knife, which ended up in a domestic violence charge against Short.
So, considering the 32-year-old didn't show up to face the music, bounty hunters and sheriffs apprehended him inside a El Lay night club to revoke his $500,000 bail.
The group were in the right to arrest the actor because he has fled the country over abuse charges before.
In a bizarre twist, Short was at the club to promote his music because apparently that's a thing. Seriously, when did the father of two find the time to record beats amidst his legal drama and cocaine addiction? Sigh.
We'll keep you updated as the case progresses!
