Short is scheduled to appear in court on May 9
Columbus Short, who most recently starred in Scandal, failed a recent drug test, which in turn could result in a probation violation charge in a felony assault case, according to a report.
Court records obtained by the Associated Press show Short testing positive for cocaine and marijuana. According to the papers, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge learned about the test results on Thursday and subsequently scheduled a court date for the actor on May 9.
In September of last year, Short pleaded no contest to punching a man out at a restaurant in L.A. in 2014 for which he was reportedly sentenced to three years on supervised probation, two months of community labor and anger management counseling.
According to the AP, Short did finish his anger management counseling, but has not finished his community labor.
Short’s rep did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
