Things are not looking good for "Scandal" actor Columbus Short... TMZ obtained a restraining order that Tanee McCall, Columbus's wife, had filed alleging that they had a fight which ended in him pouring wine on her and getting a knife and then pinned her down choking her, questioning about men he believed she had affairs with. 

Unfortunately, it didn't stop there. He also threatened to kill them both, and slashed her tires when she tried to leave. She has obtained a restraining order against him and has also filed for divorce and sole custody of their two-year-old child. 

We also know that Short has recently been involved in a bar fight in which he got arrested for aggravated battery. It sounds like maybe there is something else going on here.... hopefully he can work this out!!
