    Columbus Short is having a rough year.

    The 31-year-old former Scandal star was busted yet again, this time getting arrested in Dallas Friday for public intoxication, the Dallas Police Department confirmed to E! News.

    A source told E! News Short was allegedly combative with police officers, calling one black officer an "Uncle Tom" while being arrested.

    The actor had a little too much fun at popular Dallas bar Katy Trail Ice House, according to TMZ, which reported that Short was "drinking a lot,"  got into a scuffle with a security guard and was screaming at cops before he was taken to jail.

    This is just the latest scandal for the star, who was arrested and charged with felony battery after getting into a bar brawl earlier this year and was reportedly busted twice for domestic violence. In the midst of all that, Short's wife filed for divorce and news broke that he would not be returning to Scandal after three seasons on the show.
