Police are investigating a bar fight, reportedly involving "Scandal" star Columbus Short, that left one man hospitalized.

Short was allegedly involved in a fight on March 15 while out celebrating an engagement at Gabe's Bar and Grill in Los Angeles, according to TMZ. After another partygoer made a comment to the actor about his wife, Short purportedly punched the man, leaving him unconscious and with a broken nose. TMZ reports cops are now conducting a criminal investigation.

This is not the first time Short has been accused of a physical altercation. In 2010, he was accused of breaking the jaw of a man named Jason Hill during a pick-up basketball game. Hill ultimately got a restraining order against Short, TMZ later reported.

The 31-year-old is best known for playing Harrison Wright in the hit ABC series. He has also had roles in "Death at a Funeral," "Cadillac Records," "Stomp the Yard" and "You Got Served." He was also a dancer for Britney Spears and reportedly had a brief fling with the pop star.
