Columbus Short posted bail late Wednesday night after bounty hunters tracked him down Tuesday at his own album release party.

“He is being released from jail tonight,” the former “Scandal” star’s lawyer Ludlow B. Creary told TheWrap. Creary said his client would no longer have to attend a court hearing scheduled for Thursday morning.

Short’s latest arrest came at the hands of bounty hunters just before he was about to perform at Universal Studios City Walk in Los Angeles. Following his arrest, he was held on $250,000 bail at the Men’s Central Jail but has now been released.

“His arrest was not due to an outstanding warrant as was erroneously reported,” his rep said. “It appears that this is a citizens arrest as a result of an issue between Mr. Short and his bail bondsman.”

In December 2014, a judge ruled that Short would stand trial on a felony battery charge stemming from a March brawl in the parking lot of a Los Angeles bar, where he was accused of punching Fenton Hyche. Hyche suffered a concussion and a fractured eye socket, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

If convicted, Short faces up to four years in prison in the case.

    One of my favorite black male actors, I wish he could stay out of his own way. Stop it! So Hollywood won’t “blacklist” you.
