‘Scandal’ Star Arrested for Aggravated Battery

“Scandal” star Columbus Short is wanted by police after getting into a bar fight earlier this month.  A judge issued an arrest warrant for Short in one count of felony aggravated battery.

According to reports, Short punched a man at an engagement party after the man aggravated and mouthed off to Short.  Allegedly, the man had a broken nose and was left unconscious for several minutes from the hit.

If charged, the maximum sentence could leave Short in prison for four years.

Short was arrested on Wednesday night by the Claremont Police Department and was released on a $50,000 bail.

“Scandal” stars know Short as Harrison Wright, a member of Olivia Pope’s team on the series.
