This picture may be enough to put Columbus Short behind bars. 

Short chose the Caribbean over court Wednesday.  He had been ordered to appear before a judge in his domestic violence case but was a no show.  The judge issued an arrest warrant.

Lo and behold ... Columbus was living large at a festival called Fantasy Barbados ... a Mardi-Gras-like celebration.

Nation News on the island got what could be the smoking gun for the judge ... surely enough to throw the book at the former "Scandal" star.
