What a way to end your Fourth of July.
The former “Scandal” star was arrested on Friday for public intoxication, after getting into a scuffle over an unpaid bar tab. The actor was celebrating the holiday at Katy Trail Ice House in Dallas, Texas when the incident occurred.
Witnesses say that Short got upset when a security guard for the venue approached him. He then accused the guard of being racist for pinpointing him.
Off duty police officers, who were there that evening, broke up the fight, but it didn’t take Short that long to turn on them. Short attacked the cops, and witnesses described Short as “a dog with a bone who wouldn’t let go”.
The “Stomp The Yard” star was arrested for public intoxication. Luckily, that was the only thing he got arrested for. It seems like Short has a very short temper.
As you all may know, this isn’t Short’s first run in with the law; he was arrested for punching a guest at an engagement party and arrested twice for domestic violence. His legal troubles are the reason for the loss of his job as a cast member of the ABC hit series “Scandal”.
