You might remember Columbus Short as Harrison from ABC’s “Scandal,” or as a former backup dancer for Britney Spears.

Unfortunately the Kansas City-born actor has made more headlines for his off camera antics, and this week was no exception.

Short was doing sound check for his performance at an album release party in Studio City, California, when four bail bondsman approached him, according to TMZ.

Short was then arrested by the bail bondsmen, the result of “an issue between Mr. Short and his bail bondsmen,” a rep for Short told the gossip site.

In a video, Short tells the officers that they freaked him out, but otherwise seems calm.

According to TMZ, the bounty hunters arrested Short because they believed he was about to flee the county.

Whatever the issue, we hope it gets resolved soon. We don’t like seeing our Kansas Citians in trouble.
