Columbus Short sentenced in assault case.
Columbus Short will avoid jail time for a bar fight in Los Angeles last December that left a man unconscious.
The former “Scandal” star pleaded no contest to a felony count of assault likely to cause great bodily injury and was sentenced to three years’ probation and two months of community labor. Columbus is also required to take 26 anger-management classes and pay restitution to Fenton Hyche III, the man he punched in the bar. The amount will be determined during a hearing on October 21.
