LOCKED UP: Columbus Short ARRESTED For Public Intoxication In Dallas! [UPDATE]
We all need to drop Columbus Short's name in the prayer box at church tomorrow. He was arrested for being drunk in public, but wait until you hear the details surrounding his arrest. More inside….
UPDATE: A picture of Columbus Short has surfaced of him sitting on a curb in handcuffs shortly after his 4th of July arrest for public intoxication.
Columbus Short can probably label 2014 as one of the worst years of his life. The former “Scandal” star spent his 4th of July behind bars after he was arrested for public intoxication. But he could have landed in jail for a lot more.
After hanging out at Katy Trail Ice House in Dallas for about four hours, the "Gave Ya" singer felt he had enough to drink and decided to leave. But…he allegedly didn’t pay his tab, so the bouncer at the door talked to him about it.
Apparently, Columbus was pissed the bouncer asked him about his unpaid tab and began screaming. An eyewitness tells TMZ the shamed actor accused the security guard of being a racist…but we're not sure why seeing that the guard was also black. Then their screaming match turned into an all out scuffle.
Lucikly, two off-duty cops were there and broke it up before things got completely out of hand. Columbus could have possibly walked away a free man, but once he saw the cops were called, he started screaming at them too! It was reported he tried to attack the authorities as well. Sighs...
So…they locked him up and sent him to jail and he was only charged with public intoxication. No assault charges.
You'll recall he skipped out on family court last week costing him to cough up over $46K in sposual support, child support and his estranged wife's legal fees.
This guy really needs in intervention…
