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.

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