Former "Scandal" star Columbus Short ran into some trouble on his Fourth of July holiday.
The actor was arrested Friday for public intoxication at local bar Katy Trail Ice House in Dallas, Texas, People reports. An employee told the celebrity magazine that Short "was verbally assaulting the police."
In May, the actor plead not guilty to felony battery after allegedly punching a man at a Los Angeles restaurant. In April, his wife filed for divorce after claiming he threatened her with a knife. He faces a misdemeanor spousal battery case and is planning to contest his estranged wife's restraining order.
Short announced in April that after three years on the show, he won't be returning to hit ABC drama "Scandal."
