The Scandal star was reportedly detained by law enforcement officers at a club on L.A.'s Universal CityWalk as he was about to perform a soundcheck for the event.

According to, Short was picked up after his failure to appear in court for a hearing relating to an ongoing legal case against him prompted a judge to issue an arrest warrant.

The star is currently facing a number of legal issues including a trial for felony battery stemming from a bar brawl in March last year (14), while he is also on probation after pleading no contest to a charge of misdemeanor spousal battery last summer (14).
