Back to Life. Back to reality.
Former “Scandal” actor Columbus Short is now living out that Soul II Soul blockbuster classic when he seemingly ignored the warrants for his arrest in Los Angeles and rather than turning himself in, he decided to get turned up at the J’ouvert Carnival and Crop Over in the Caribbean island country of Barbados.
The volatile actor was taken into custody today after appearing in a Los Angeles court. Last month, Columbus was wanted by the courts after failing to appear for his domestic violence case with estranged wife Tanee and his bail was set at $40K.
Then earlier this week, he skipped out on another court hearing (handled by the same judge) for the same charge. So the judge upped his bail to $500,000.
The actor, who came to fame via Stomp the Yard film that was a hit with urbanites, was also scheduled to appear in court earlier today for a criminal case involving one of his infamous bar fights. But of course, he wasn’t present for it because he was already behind bars. That judge issued a $250,000 bail.
