Columbus Short Is Caught Up in a New Scandal

Columbus Short Is Caught Up in a New Scandal

The actor seems to be falling back into bad habits.

Another scandal for Columbus Short.

The estranged husband of Karrine "Superhead" Steffans was caught violating his probation for his felony assault case when he tested positive for drugs — marijuana and cocaine, to be exact. According to court papers, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge learned about the test results on Thursday and has scheduled a court date for the actor on May 9.

Last September, Short pleaded no contest to punching a man out at a restaurant in L.A. in 2014 and was sentenced to three years on supervised probation, two months of community labor, and anger management counseling. According to reports, he's completed the anger management but not the labor. 

Short recently split from his "wife" Steffans after he reportedly cheated on her and they got into a very public fight, which she posted video of to Instagram. It's not clear what their relationship status is at this point, but considering Karrine's sudden silence on social media, we're guessing Columbus has been crashing at a friend's.
