Columbus Short was arrested and taken into custody in a Van Nuys courtroom.
The former “Scandal” star has been a wanted man since last month when he failed to appear in his criminal domestic violence case, according to TMZ. He later appeared in a YouTube video and claimed he would not come back to the U.S. Instead he plans going to buy a home in Barbados.
The judge issued an arrest warrant for Short as a result. His bail is set at $40,000. While Short was in Barbados, the judge upped the bail to $500,000.
However, Short showed up to face the music and was immediately arrested.
TMZ reports that Short had a second hearing yesterday for a criminal case stemming from a bar fight. But since he had been taken into custody he couldn’t appear for that hearing. So, the judge in the bar fight case issued a second arrest warrant and set bail at $250K.
We’re not sure even Olivia Pope herself could fix this downward spiral of shame. Hopefully Columbus will get it together now.
