Columbus Short Sentenced to 3 Years Probation

Columbus Short has avoided a jail sentence for charges related to a Mar. 2014 assault at a Los Angeles restaurant that left a man bloodied and unconscious.

The former Scandal star pleaded no contest on Thursday to felony assault, according to TMZ.

Short was sentenced to 3 years probation, 60 days community labor, and 26 anger management classes.

He was also ordered to pay restitution to the victim.

Well it looks like Mr. Short dodged a bullet, but those punches thrown will still cost him.
