Local authorities said the 31-year-old star was placed in police custody at around 2 a.m. at the Katy Trail Ice House, a popular beer garden and restaurant. Sources say Short had been heavily drinking for approximately four hours when things took a turn for the worse.
The actor allegedly got up from his seat and looked as if he was leaving without paying his tab. A security guard confronted him and Short reportedly started screaming, accusing the guard of racism. The guard was Black.
The pair eventually engaged in a scuffle that left Short in handcuffs. The actor nor his team have yet to speak out about the incident.
