Former Scandal star Columbus Scott is heading to jail after striking his new wife.

Short pled no contest in a Los Angeles Court on Friday after hitting Aida Abramyan during an argument last November.

Prosecutors claim the actor struck her following an argument between the pair.

As a result he was sentenced to 36 months probation and domestic violence education.

But he was already on probation for a 2014 bar fight where he knocked out another man – receiving a year in jail for violating the probation.

The troubled 35-year-old star already has a history of domestic violence.

In addition he is currently on probation for a previous incident where he allegedly put a knife to his former wife Tuere Tanee Short's throat.

Short was fired from ABC's Scandal back in 2014 amid his domestic legal issues.
