Columbus Short allegedly punched a man in the head in a bar fight

Scandal star Columbus Short has been arrested for his alleged involvement in a bar fight earlier in March.

Hours after a California judge issued a warrant for the actor's arrest on one count of felony aggravated battery on 26 March, Short turned himself in to authorities, a Claremont Police Department spokesperson confirmed to E! News.

The arrest stems from an incident at Gabe's Bar and Grill in Los Angeles, where Short reportedly punched a man in the head.  The alleged victim is said to be have been rendered unconscious for several minutes and later required medical treatment for a broken nose.

Short has since been released after posting $50,000 bail.

He faces up to four years in prison if found guilty
