Actor Columbus Short has been released from jail after just serving 34 days of his 1-year sentence for domestic violence.

Short was given the sentence after hitting his wife during an argument in 2014. Since he was already on probation for a bar fight in 2014, it was seen as him violating his probation. Turning his initial sentence of probation for 36 months and domestic violence education, into a year in jail.

Short was released early due to overcrowding.
