'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.

That man saw the ATM coming from a mile away. He got punched in the fact and he has EKG leads on? Oh yeah, he knew exactly what he was doing when he started his shlt. Pay up, Short, you didn't figure it out fool.

No doubt the guy deserved it, but Columbus and guys like him need to not be provoked by worthless jackasses. Fight back with words or walk away.

He got what he deserves. Any guy who lets someone say sh*t about his wife is nothing but a puzzy.
