'Scandal' actor Columbus Short involved in bar fight, police investigating

By Kyle Johnson,

Actor Columbus Short was reportedly involved in a bar fight on Saturday, March 15 in Los Angeles, when he got into an argument and then fight with another patron, with the latter requiring a visit to the hospital.

According to TMZ, who first reported the news, police sources say that the Scandal actor was at the bar for someone's engagement.

A witness claims that Short sucker punched the 37-year-old man shortly after the guy told the actor, "You might be richer than me but I get my girls to buy me everything I want including your wife."

Short's punch broke the man's nose and knocked him out for a short time. He woke up and was taken to the hospital.

Police say they are looking into the fight, with possible criminal charges forthcoming for Short.

This isn't the first time the Stomp The Yard 2 actor has been in legal trouble over a fight, as Short got into a fist fight with then-college basketball player Jason Hill back in 2010, according to MediaTakeout.
