Columbus Short arrested
Columbus Short might need to call Olivia Pope! The Associated Press reports that the “Scandal” star was taken into custody following a bar fight over the weekend, which left the victim with a broken nose.
He was arrested Wednesday by Claremony police on felony battery charges. He didn’t stay in lockup long, however, after posting $50,000 bail. There’s no word on when he is due in court to face allegations that he knocked a man out by punching him during an engagement party. The brawl left the victim severely injured, and the actor could face up to four years in prison if he is convicted.
Columbus has not yet spoken out about the arrest or what his next moves will be in the case.
