Hopefully Olivia Pope can get Harrison out of trouble as he could face up to 4 years in California State prison!

Columbus Short who plays Harrison Wright on, “Scandal” was arrested yesterday, after having a physical altercation last week at a West LA bar.

Apparently, he got heated after some dude taunted him saying:

“You might be richer than me, but I get my girls to buy me everything I want, including YOUR wife.”

Columbus Short then, “sucker punched” the 37-year-old man in the face causing him to be unconscious for several minutes, and breaking his nose. He is charged with a felony battery charge and held on a $50,000 bail!

It's hard to believe that our beloved fast-talking character "Harrison" is violent in real-life!


Unfortunately, this is not the first time that the Scandal star has gotten into trouble with the law; he was also arrested on two separate occasions for allegedly attacking his wife.


On a side note the ABC thriller, Scandal will resume on Thursday 10:00pm EST.
