Columbus Short may need to call on Olivia Pope because the actor is being investigated after being involved in a massive bar fight.
Sources tell TMZ that the Scandal star was at Gabe’s Bar and Grill in L.A. on March 15 celebrating a friends engagement when he got into an altercation with a man at the bar. According to reports, the man told Short: “You might be richer than me but I get my girls to buy me everything I want including your wife.”
Well that clearly didn’t sit well with the actor because the 31-year-old punched the victim in the face and allegedly broke the man’s nose. The victim allegedly became unconscious for several minutes before eventually being rushed to the hospital. Sources tell TMZ that Columbus left the bar after the fight.
Law enforcement is currently investigating a criminal battery.
Calls to Short’s reps were not returned.
