ABC 2014 Season 3 Scandal cast can be just as dicey off the screen as on it. Kerry Washington took to Twitter to let all the spoiler haters know, she's laughing at them. Meanwhile Columbus Short, who plays member of Olivia Pope's fixer team Harrison Wright, was arrested in West L.A. on felony battery charges yesterday.
Scandal's cast member Columbus Short is really living up to the series title. The 31-year-old Kansas City native is facing his second battery charge in as many months.
According to Us Weekly, this time Short reportedly messed up some hapless bar patron, who didn't realize they were dealing with a brawler:
"[Columbus Short] has been accused of seriously injuring a fellow restaurant patron during a brawl that took place on Feb. 15. During the melee, Short allegedly punched the man and left him momentarily unconscious.
"L.A. County District Attorney's Office [stated] Short was arrested by Claremont police Wednesday, after a warrant was issued. He was released after posting $50,000 bail."
This isn't the first time this month that Short has had to deal with the consequences of a violent outburst claims Us Weekly; Columbus was arrested on Valentine's Day for allegedly beating up his old lady:
"The latest incident comes nearly one month after Short was charged on Valentine's Day with misdemeanor spousal battery. The actor was ordered to stay away from his wife Tuere Short on March 5.
"According to the Associated Press, Tuere filed for divorce in 2013, but dismissed her petition in early 2014."
Speaking of being dismissed, Kerry Washington let all her Twitter followers know that they shouldn't even waste their time complaining to Washington about her spoiler posts:
"Folks mad about spoilers are making me laugh. I feel your pain but that's what EVENT TV is! If you don't want to know the score, don't follow ESPN."
Bet she wouldn't act that hard to Short's face.
