Scandal for Columbus Short over alleged assault

FIGHT ALLEGATIONS: Columbus Short (PA)

SCANDAL STAR Columbus Short reportedly knocked out a man during a bar fight which left the man seeking hospital treatment.

According to TMZ, the 31-year old actor, who plays Harrison Wright in the hit TV series, is being investigated by Los Angeles police for assault.

The incident allegedly happened this month, at Gabe's Bar and Grill in LA where Short was celebrating a couple's engagement.

Sources told TMZ that the actor got angry after another man at the party reportedly said: “You might be richer than me but I get my girls to buy me everything I want including your wife.”

According to witnesses, Short attacked the man, giving him a broken nose and knocking him unconscious for several minutes, and then left the bar immediately after.

Eyewitnesses say an ambulance arrived and took the injured man, who is thought to be 37 years old, to a nearby hospital.

Short, who stars alongside Kerry Washington in the ABC political drama, has a history of violent behavior.

He reportedly knocked several teeth out of a man he was playing basketball with at a LA gym back in 2010.
