Columbus Short was arrested and taken into custody this morning. The actor, a wanted man since last month, showed up in a Van Nuys, Calif., courtroom.

The 31-year-old has been a fugitive ever since failing to appear in court for his criminal domestic violence case, one of his several recent police run-ins.

Short chose to go to Barbados instead. Big mistake. The judge issued a warrant and set bail at $40,000, upping it to half a million when he didn't show again.

When it comes to brains, he drew the Short straw.

The actor finally got the message, ended his vacation, showed up to face the music and was arrested immediately. And it gets even crazier from there:

He was due in court today for another case involving a bar fight ... which he didn't show up for because he was in custody in the domestic violence case.

Embattled actor Columbus Short, who was quasi-fired from Scandal following his domestic violence arrest in February, has gone on the viral offensive against his wife.

He shot a video to show his estranged spouse, Tanee McCall, was the violent one in their relationship ... and this clip certainly doesn't hurt his argument.

Columbus Short was arrested for domestic violence for an incident at his house February 18, having been accused of assaulting his wife that night.

The next day, after Columbus bailed out of jail, he asked his friend Tilly Key to come over to his house to pick him up. At that point, Tanee went ballistic.

When she saw that Tilly was in the house, Tanee (on top) attacked; Tilly gave the video to TMZ to prove that Tanee is violent ... even threatening her life.

She feared for it, too. Tilly alleges that she suffered a concussion, a cervical sprain, multiple contusions, a lumbar sprain and lumbar strain as a result of this.

Tanee has filed for divorce and sought a protective order forcing Columbus (who was also arrested in an unrelated fight in March) out of the house.

Columbus Short may be off Scandal.

But he isn't done creating scandals of his own.

Mere days after Short confirmed his departure from the aforementioned ABC hit, the actor's estranged wife (Tanee) alleges he broke into the couple's home and totally ransacked the residence.

In new court documents filed this week, Tanee claims Short violated his restraining order over Easter weekend when he broke a door of its hinges inside her house, tore off her bed sheets and left many lights on.

Short's wife now says she is afraid for her life and for the life of her daughter.

That cliffhanger ending to Scandal Season 3 where Rowan Pope had Harrison Wright trapped in the Smithsonian with a double agent? Yeah, that was goodbye to Harrison. 

Columbus Short is leaving Scandal Season 4, the actor confirmed on Friday.

“At this time I must confirm my exit from a show I’ve called home for 3 years, with what is the most talented ensemble on television today," Short said in his statement to Us Weekly.

So to speak. If you thought Isaac Cohen had a stranglehold on the "Random Dudes Linked Romantically to Britney Spears" category, well, you best think again.

Britney, Sean and Jayden

Sir Isaac might be her most recent fling, but according to TMZ, back in 2003, actor Columbus Short was involved with Britney - and while his wife was 7 months pregnant.

Sound like anyone you know?

The choreographer-turned-actor, who is promoting his new film, Stomp the Yard, was recently asked by entertainment reporter Jawn Murray how it feels to have a life that didn't go the way of Kevin Federline.

So to speak.

Noticeably taken aback by the inquiry, Columbus Short replied:

"I believe in my talent ... not to diss Kevin, he's a boy of mine ... I'm grateful in the career decisions that I've made and God directing my path."

Wow. You heard it here first: God hates Britney Spears.
