Columbus Short not returning to 'Scandal' following legal troubles

Columbus Short won't be returning to "Scandal" following legal troubles.
The announcement comes after Short was arrested last month on a felony charge that he injured a man during an altercation at a restaurant in March.
Short was also charged Feb. 14 with misdemeanor spousal battery and has pleaded not guilty in that case. A judge ordered him to stay away from his wife at a March 5 court hearing. Records show she filed for divorce last year but dismissed her petition earlier this year.
Short plays attorney Harrison Wright on the hit series created by Shonda Rhimes and starring Kerry Washington. His character was seen in jeopardy in the season finale.
