Columbus Short has reportedly failed his probationary drug test for the last time. Short who was serving probation for a 2014 assault charge will remain in jail for an additional 24 days (he’s already been in custody for 6). TMZ reports:
The ex “Scandal” star was in court Wednesday for a progress report where the judge handed down the jail sentence, plus 6 months in a residential drug treatment program.
Prosecutors said Short was violating his probation from a 2014 assault case by continuing to smoke marijuana — testing showed his THC levels were increasing weekly. They also say he’s done ZERO hours of community service.
Short tried playing the sympathy card — his lawyer informed the judge Short’s sister died of heart failure last week. It didn’t work and ultimately, Short apologized.
In between domestic issues with his estranged wife Karrine “Superhead” Steffans, his sister passing, and run in’s with the law it seems as if Short is going through a rough time.
