LAPD is investigating whether Columbus Short put his "Gladiator" skills to work on the face of a bar patron who ended up unconscious AND with a broken nose. Deets on the bar fight inside....
"Scandal" star Columbus Short may really have some gladiator skills when it comes to "laying hands." Eyewitnesses at Gabe's Bar and Grill in L.A. told TMZ that Columbus went all-HUCK on a dude who insulted him at the bar. The two started arguing during a couple's engagement party after the bar guy said something to him like, "You might be richer than me but I get my girls to buy me everything I want including your wife."
Fighting words, obviously.
At that point, an eyewitness said Columbus came up from behind (real Quinn-like right?) and sucker punched the guy leaving him with a broken nose was and unconscious for several minutes...B-613 style. Cops are now investigating a criminal battery.
We don't expect this to make it to trial however....because we know how folks can keep things like this off the books....
Here's video of the alleged victim. EYEWITNESSES claim he additionally had a broken nose. We also reached out to Columbus' reps for comment.
