Columbus Short Speaks Out About Domestic Violence Arrest

Columbus Short has spoken out about the domestic violence arrest last week.

"Marriages are challenging but getting through it is the blessing! I AM not [an] abusive man nor am I on drugs but drinking alcohol makes my words unholy sometimes," captioned the video. "My wife and I are working on our marriage. The real work w/ @callmemrsshort #MyApologies."

"I know there's some stuff out here in the media again, arrested for felony domestic violence, but let me tell you what really happened," he says in the video.

He continued, "I asked my wife to leave the home due to my frustration and I grabbed her phone, which I shouldn't have [done] and I scratched her hand. Post-OJ, the police came here, detectives were here, it was a whole just ridiculous thing."

He said the cops did not want to arrest him.

"Based on that scratch, I went to jail," the actor said in the video. "I'm sorry for anybody that I let down. I'm grinding, I'm working hard, but, my apologies."
