Columbus-Short

*Things continue to spiral downward for former “Scandal” star Columbus Short, who now has a warrant out for his arrest, reports TMZ.

The actor was ordered to show Wednesday morning in criminal court for a hearing in his domestic violence case. His wife was asking the judge for more protection from the actor.

But Short failed to appear, so the judge issued a bench warrant, according to TMZ.

The day before he was a no-show in a different criminal case. The judge threatened to issue a warrant and Columbus suddenly appeared.

TMZ asked Columbus Tuesday about that belated court appearance. Watch his reaction below:
