The Scandalalum, 32, was taken into custody as he prepared to take the stage at the Infusion Lounge in Los Angeles. The incident was a citizens arrest stemming from a dispute between Short and his bail bondsman, according to TheWrap. He was released Wednesday after posting $250,000 bail.
This isn't the first time Short has had a run-in with the law. In April 2014, he was fired from Scandal after he was charged with domestic violence and arrested multiple times for violent behavior against his then-wife.
He is also set to stand trial after pleading not guilty to felony battery charges stemming from a bar brawl in March 2014, and faces up to four years in prison in relation to that case.
In December, Short admitted in an interview that he was struggling with a cocaine addiction.
