Columbus Short's Fourth of July ended with a bang. The former Scandal star was arrested for public intoxication Friday night after getting into a bar fight in Dallas.

According to TMZ, the actor was celebrating the holiday when he seemingly got up to leave without paying for his drinks. A security guard confronted him and Columbus became "loud and physical," accusing him of being racist -- even though the guard was black too. Off-duty Dallas cops tried to break up the fight, but Short allegedly attacked them as well.


This isn't his first bar fight. Columbus was arrested earlier this year after he allegedly sucker-punched a man and knocked him out. He's also been arrested twice for domestic violence, which cost him his job on the ABC hit Scandal.
