*Former “Scandal” actor Columbus Short is facing a lawsuit from the man who accused him of assault in March.

The actor was charged with felony aggravated battery for his alleged involvement in a bar fight in Los Angeles after he was accused of punching a man in the face. Short pleaded not guilty to the allegations in court in May and is currently free on bail.

However, he is now being sued by the alleged victim, named Felton Hyche III, who claims in the lawsuit that he was hospitalized and treated for a number of broken bones in his face, according to TMZ.
