Columbus Short Arrested Outside His Album Release Party

The former 'Scandal' actor was ambushed by bounty hunters when he was celebrating his album release in a Los Angeles club.

AceShowbiz - Columbus Short landed in hot water once again. The former "Scandal" actor was allegedly taken into custody outside a recent party celebrating his album release at the Infusion Lounge nightclub at Universal Studios CityWalk in Los Angeles.

According to TMZ, the 32-year-old actor/singer was ambushed by several bounty hunters and officers when he was about to do a soundcheck. A bench warrant was reportedly issued for him after he failed to appear in court for one of his domestic violence cases. The bounty hunters were allegedly promised a portion of his $500,000 bail to capture him.

A representative for the actor, however, set the record straight. "[Short's] arrest was NOT due to an outstanding warrant," the rep clarified. "It appears that this is a citizen's arrest as a result of an issue between Mr. Short and his bail bondsman."
