Actor Columbus Short Opens Up About Recent Arrests and Scandal Departure

 ACCESS HOLLYWOOD EXCLUSIVE: COLUMBUS SHORT INTERVIEW


Columbus Short exclusively opens up to Access Hollywood about his past arrests, leaving ABC’s ‘Scandal’ and closing the chapter on his complicated divorce.

The last three months have been probably the most trying times of my life”- Columbus Short

Los Angeles, CA- Over the holiday weekend, Columbus Short was arrested in Dallas for public intoxication. This news comes after a rough few months for the former ‘Scandal’ star who has had various run-ins with the law, ultimately causing ABC to end his contract on the hit TV show, ‘Scandal.’
 
Columbus, in an emotional interview, spoke exclusively with Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush to share his side of the story.

INTERVIEW HIGHLIGHTS:

"I think there's a time when your personal life gets magnified by who we are as celebrities.”

On the Dallas incident on 4th of July:
 
“There's something visceral that happened inside of me, and yah, I'll say it, even as a black man in handcuffs on the ground, for no justifiable reason at all. I wasn’t acting intoxicated, I had had a couple of drink, but whatever, I was angry and I used my vocabulary to kind of fight that.”
 
On being dropped from the ABC hit show 'Scandal':
 
“Let’s talk about ABC and let’s talk about the show ‘Scandal.’ They did not throw me to the curb like trash - that's my family. They knew that I was going through a tough season and rallied around me and wrapped their arms around me, from Shonda to the craft service man. We’re a family and I think at a certain point when you're getting a barrage of stories after stories, ABC justifiably would want to distance themselves…. They did the right thing but I think it takes time to rebuild.”
