Restraining Order - Against 'Stomp the Yard' Star

4/13/2010 5:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Columbus Short -- one of the stars of "Stomp the Yard" and  "Death at a Funeral" -- has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from a man who claims the actor broke his jaw in a "Pearl Harbor style assault."

Restraining Order - Against 'Stomp the Yard' Star

Jason Hill got the restraining order yesterday, after telling the court Short beat him so badly in the February 24 attack, he needed two surgeries to fix his broken jaw.

Hill claims he still fears for his safety -- because after the alleged attack, Short and two other dudes rolled up to his North Hollywood residence on April 5 and threatened "acts of violence" against him (see surveillance video).

Short's lawyer, the effervescent Shawn Chapman Holley, tells TMZ the fight occurred while Hill and Short were playing pick-up basketball, and Hill struck the first blow.  As for the alleged April 5 threats, S.C.H. says Short went to the apartment complex to visit friends and never even saw Hill.

This surveillance camera shows Columbus Short with On Point Executives Eddie Sanchez and Vegas Velasquez hanging out and visiting mutual friends, but from what it seems TMZ's opinion is that when two latin guys and one black guy are together there must be trouble. Sad case of bad journalism. GET IT RIGHT!
