The actor pled ‘no contest’ to charges last November that accused Short of physically abusing his wife, Aida Abramyan.
He was sentenced to a year behind bars since he was already on probation for a previous violent squabble at a bar. Short began serving time February 13th, but was released Monday from a Los Angeles County jail. The LA County Sheriff’s Department has not revealed what led to Short’s early release.
Short is no stranger to run-ins with the law due to domestic violence incidents. He was reportedly axed from his role on ‘Scandal’ for allegedly putting a knife to his ex wife’s throat and threatening to kill her back in 2014.
