Just shortly after getting the boot from the hit TV show Scandal, Columbus Short was arrested for public intoxication on Friday.

Short was seen mouthing off to off-duty security guards outside of the Katy Trail Ice House in Dallas. Not much has been released from Short’s lawyer, although we have word that the altercation was trivial, but enough for the cops to whip out the cuffs. What is causing this Scandal star to fall into such a tailspin?? Hopefully he can turn his act around!!
