Columbus Short was arrested yesterday - for the fourth time in four months - after drinking way too much at a bar in Dallas.

According to TMZ sources, the actor (who was let go from Scandal in April) was hanging out at Katy Trail Ice House for a few hours when he got up to leave, seemingly without paying his bill.

A security guard confronted Short… words were exchanged… a scuffle ensued… and some off-duty policemen broke up the brawl before anyone got hurt.

But Short wouldn’t let it go, screaming at those who tried to attack him.

"He was like a dog with a bone who wouldn't let it go," an onlooker tells TMZ.

Short was eventually booked for public intoxicate and taken into custody.

Earlier this year, Short punched some dude during a fight at a bar in Los Angeles, while he’s also been booked twice on charges of domestic violence and was accused by his estranged wife this spring of breaking into her home.


well, he's a professional brawler.
