'Scandal' Star

Bloody Victim [PHOTO]

'He Looked Dead'

0325_Columbus-Short-Victim_wm
"Scandal" star Columbus Short LEVELED his victim during that bloody bar fight -- leaving the man in a heap on the floor -- and then continued to rail on him ... and the pic tells a pretty gruesome story.

Sources at Gabe's Bar and Grill in L.A. tell us ... Short leaped over the father of the bride-to-be -- it was an engagement party -- and punched his 37-year-old victim in the face, knocking the man to the ground.

We're told Short continued his beating until the victim "looked dead." Short then left the bar.

As you can see in the pic, the victim was placed on a stretcher with a neck brace before being transported to a nearby hospital.

TMZ broke the story ... Short allegedly attacked the man on March 15 for making a rude comment about the actor's wife, breaking the man's nose. Police are now conducting a criminal investigation into the incident.

It takes a real big man to insult a woman. He probably deserved it.

People need to learn to keep their mouth shut. The focus is always put on the "victim" & never on how in many cases these people who get beat up do everything humanly possible to provoke a fight. It is better to just walk away but it's just as important to not create problems in the first place.

Well guess what, that's what happens when you open your mouth and speak negative words about someone's wife. Don't talk **** unless you can back it up. NO real man would sit back and allow some guy to disrespect his wife, so this doesn't have anything to do with short being famous. That's called "Honor"

I'm always amazed at the media who use quotes like "He looked dead" in stories like this one, never mentioning that the person who said it is a barista at Starbucks and has never seen either a dead body or a bloodied fight victim in real life before. Get a grip.

When keepin' it real goes wrong. Too many guys on here would be comfortable with some random ass dude making rude and disrespectful comments about their wife/girlfriend out of the blue. Sticks and stones, no. Don't let your mouth write a check that your ass can't cash, yes.
