Scandal actor Columbus Short proved that his hardened character Harrison Wright doesn’t deviate too much from his real persona. The 31-year-old actor allegedly turned another man’s face into Hamburger Helper during a bar fight last week and the results were anything but pretty.
“Scandal” star Columbus Short LEVELED his victim during that bloody bar fight — leaving the man in a heap on the floor — and then continued to rail on him … and the pic tells a pretty gruesome story.
Sources at Gabe’s Bar and Grill in L.A. tell us … Short leaped over the father of the bride-to-be — it was an engagement party — and punched his 37-year-old victim in the face, knocking the man to the ground.
We’re told Short continued his beating until the victim “looked dead.” Short then left the bar.
As you can see in the pic, the victim was placed on a stretcher with a neck brace before being transported to a nearby hospital.
An eyewitness tells TMZ Columbus then came up from behind and sucker punched the guy. The eyewitness says the man’s nose was broken and he was rendered unconscious for several minutes.
We’re told Columbus quickly left the bar.
An ambulance came and took the 37-year-old man to a nearby hospital.
Cops are now investigating a criminal battery.
It’s not the first time Columbus used his fists to make a point. In March, 2010 … Columbus was playing basketball at an L.A. Fitness gym when he got into an argument with another player and socked the guy in the face, knocking several teeth out.
Check out the pics in the gallery. The victim is going to need extensive therapy for trauma and embarrassment and Columbus was spotted today in L.A. smoking some hookah, without a care in the world. It appears he received the TMZ update on his phone and let out a hearty laugh.
