‘Scandal’ actor Columbus Short was arrested Wednesday on a felony battery charge.
31 year old Columbus is accused of punching and knocking out a guy at a West Los Angeles restaurant on March 15, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said in a statement. He was booked by the Claremont Police Department and released on $50,000 bail, the statement said.
Law enforcement sources say Columbus was at Gabe’s Bar and Grill in L.A. on March 15 at around 10:45 PM celebrating a couple’s engagement when he started arguing at the bar with another partygoer.
We’re told the other guy pissed Columbus off by making a comment along the lines of, “You might be richer than me but I get my girls to buy me everything I want including your wife.”
Columbus allegedly sucker punched the guy who was left with a broken nose and was rendered unconscious for several minutes.
He faces a maximum sentence of four years in state prison.
It’s not the first time Columbus used his fists to make a point. In March 2010 … Columbus was playing basketball at an L.A. Fitness gym when he got into an argument with another player and socked the guy in the face, knocking several teeth out.
Columbus plays Harrison Wright, a member of fixer Olivia Pope’s team, on the hit ABC series.
