"Scandal" actor Columbus Short was finally allowed to return to his home, but only to pack his things and immediately leave after two hours.
According to TMZ, Short was in court Wednesday, asking permission to move back into the house he shares with estranged wife Tanee Short, who secured a restraining order forbidding him to enter the home.
The judge reportedly granted his request to return but only to gather any belongings he needs, within two hours next Monday, and provided his lawyer accompanies him.
TMZ previously stated that Tanee Short obtained the restraining order, claiming Columbus had threatened to kill her during a violent fight in their Chatsworth home April 7.
Mrs. Short asserted her husband who was intoxicated at the time, pinned her down, choked her, and threatened to stab her unless she admitted to having affairs.
She also insisted Columbus brought a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her and himself, when she denied the accustaions.
Under the terms of the restraining order, Columbus must vacate the couple's home, which he did Wednesday, April 16.
Tanee, a dancer and actress known for the 2004 movie "You Got served, " filed for divorce on September, but eventually withdrew her request on March. She recently filed for divorce again, citing irreconcilable difference as the cause. She also seeks full custody of their 2-year-old daughter Ayala.
The 31-year-old actor was previously arrested twice, for attacking his wife on February in front of their kids, and for punching a fellow guest at a Los Angeles engagement party on March, Daily News reported.
