Columbus Short, who stars on the hit ABC series Scandal, was arrested Wednesday on charges of felony battery with serious bodily injury after allegedly getting involved in a physical altercation March 15.

TMZ reports that the incident took place during an engagement party at a Los Angeles bar when a patron allegedly made a comment about Short’s wife. Police say that Short then punched the man, who later was transported via ambulance to a nearby hospital.

Short turned himself in to police after a warrant was issued for his arrest and now has been released from police custody, the Claremont Police Department told E! News.

The actor’s bail was set at $50,000. He faces up to four years in prison if convicted.
