Columbus Short

ARRESTED

8/21/2014 12:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0821-columbus-short-tmz-01
Columbus Short just got a new set of cuffs .... he was arrested and taken into custody in a Van Nuys courtroom.

Short has been a wanted man since last month when he failed to appear in his criminal domestic violence case. Short chose to go to Barbados instead. The judge issued an arrest warrant and set bail at $40K.

That same judge became enraged earlier this week when Short skipped another hearing ... he was still vacationing in Barbados. The judge upped the bail to $500K.

The former "Scandal" star showed up this AM to face the music and was immediately arrested.

Now get this ... Short had another hearing today in a criminal case involving a bar fight, but he didn't show because he was in custody. So the judge in the bar fight case issued a SECOND arrest warrant and set bail at $250K.

He makes bad decisions.

He's going to be 'short' on bail money but long on time. Oh, wait. It's California, so he'll be home for dinner.

All my predictions for this VIOLENT heathen have come true. He's in a real spot now because he has to come up with all of this bail money with no job.

When are these idiots ever going to learn. Money doesnt buy class or smarts. Maybe when Judges start locking these degenerate s up when they violate the law, instead of slapping them on the wrist time after time, they will finally get the message and smarten up. They all think they are so cool, until they get thrown in jail. He is just another idiot.
