It’s definitely time to call on Olivia Pope.
Dipping and dodging can only get you so far when you’re a celebrity and the former Scandal star learned the hard time way. Columbus Short gets arrested after believing he’s above the law.
Short has been a wanted man for over a month after he chose partying over his responsibilities. He failed to appear for his scheduled hearing in his criminal domestic violence case. Instead he turned up in Barbados and in return the judge issued a warrant arrest and $40K bail.
Then he did it again. Same case and same judge, who in return increased his bail to $500K.
Finally the actor snapped back to reality and showed up yesterday morning to get his affairs in order and was immediately handcuffed.
The next part is where his karma is coming to bite him in the butt. Being that the troubled star is now arrested, he’s failed to show up to his other hearing in the matter of his bar fight.
So the judge in the criminal bar fight case has issued his own arrest warrant and set bail at $250K.
That Barabados trip isn’t looking like such a good idea after all.
