HipHollywood has learned new details regarding the arrest of former Scandal star, Columbus Short.
Short was arrested by bounty hunters on Tuesday night just before his album release party at the Universal Studios City Walk in Los Angeles.
A rep for the actor tells us that Short’s arrest was “NOT due to an outstanding warrant as was erroneously reported.” We are also told that this was a “citizens arrest as a result of an issue between Mr. Short and his bail bondsman.”
The 32-year-old’s rep also confirmed that “the amount of $500,000” that was reported by media outlets “is inaccurate.”
We are told that Short’s legal team is currently working on his release and that here is no other information available at this time.
