Actor Columbus Short has been arrested after missing two court appearances in connection to his domestic violence case.

The “Scandal” star became a fugitive last month when he missed one hearing in California due to his party plans in Barbados, and he was still there on Wednesday when he was scheduled to appear again.

He was arrested and taken into custody in Van Nuys upon his return to the U.S. on Thursday, according to

His bail was increased to $500,000 after he failed to make it to court on Wednesday.

And Short’s problems continue – his bail in another case has been set at $250,000 after he failed to show up at a hearing in a criminal case involving a bar fight.

The actor couldn’t appear because he was in custody for failure to show at his Wednesday court date.
