Well at least he avoided jail time…

Columbus Short has been one of the more controversial celebs of recent history with a slew of arrests and other legal issues including public intoxication, cocaine use, domestic abuse, and even fleeing the country!

But for some silver-lining, the ex-Scandal star now has one less burden to worry about — his battery arrest.

That's because Columbus plead no contest to his 2014 assault case in Los Angeles on Thursday and was sentenced to three years probation.

But that's not all.

The 33-year-old actor will also have to serve 60 days community service as well as attend 26 anger management classes.

Hopefully these punishments will force him to get his act together, but it's good to see that he's actually acknowledging that he was in the wrong.

What do U think of Columbus' rather lenient sentencing??
