Columbus Short has just made a Los Angeles judge angrier. Last month, Short blew off a domestic violence court appearance, and a warrant was issued for his arrest. So where exactly was Short? Well, according to a variety of sources, he was living it up in Barbados.

According to TMZ, Short missed another court date Wednesday morning and now his warrant has been raised. Short’s previous arrest warrant was $40,000, but now it’s up to $500,000. It’s alleged that Short plans on returning back to the U.S. later Wednesday, and if he is apprehended he’ll have to pony up the $500,000 before he is set free.

Here’s hoping that extended stay in Barbados was worth the trouble he’s about to get himself in.
