According to TMZ, when police arrived at the residence, Columbus told them his wife punched him in the face.
When police spoke with Aida, they noticed she had a minor injury and arrested Columbus for felony domestic assault.
Columbus took to Instagram to address the arrest directly with a video statement.
The caption on the video read:
Marriages are challenging but getting through it is the blessing!
I AM not an abusive man nor am I on drugs but drinking alcohol makes my mouth get a little out of pocket. That’s the truth. My wife and I are working on our marriage. The real work w/ @callmemrsshort #MyApologies #LEVITATING2022 ???????????? ????????
In the video, Columbus explained that he and his wife had a disagreement and he asked her to leave.

When the police arrived they “had to make a decision” on who to arrest and when they saw the scratch on Aida, they arrested Columbus.
