I wasn’t advised to do that. I just did that. I think that wasn’t the best thing to do, but I said it. You know what? I stopped the press because they tucked that story.” 

Short added, “Let me tell you what really happened. I asked my wife to leave the home due to my frustration, and I grabbed her phone which I shouldn’t have did, and I scratched her hand.”

When have reported that Columbus Short has been involved in multiple altercations with his wife. He was recently charged with two misdemeanors for his February 3rd incident.
