Scandal star Columbus Short has been arrested for his alleged involvement in a bar fight earlier this month (Mar14). Hours after a California judge issued a warrant for the actor's arrest on one count of felony aggravated battery on Wednesday (26Mar14), Short turned himself in to authorities, a Claremont Police Department spokesperson confirmed to E! News. The arrest stems from an incident at Gabe's Bar and Grill in Los Angeles, where Short reportedly punched a man in the head. The alleged victim is said to be have been rendered unconscious for several minutes and later required medical treatment for a broken nose. Short has since been released after posting $50,000 (GBP31,250) bail. He faces up to four years in prison if found guilty.
