EXCLUSIVE

0326_columbus_short_getty2"Scandal" star Columbus Short is now a wanted man -- TMZ has learned a warrant has been issued for his arrest for felony aggravated battery stemming from a bar fight earlier this month. 

TMZ broke the story ... Short allegedly suckerpunched a guy at an engagement party after the dude mouthed off to Short. The victim was left with a broken nose and was rendered unconscious for several minutes. 

Now a judge has issued a warrant for Short's arrest on one count of felony aggravated battery.  It's a felony because of  serious bodily injury.

The charge carries a maximum sentence of four years in state prison.  As of this post, Short has not turned himself in.

His bond has been set at $50,000.

End of career. Stupid man, sometimes you just have to walk away. Hmmmm, I don't recall where this happened, you stand a chance of not much happening if it was in Cali, other than that, doubt you can buy your way out of this, possibly in Florida.

These ignoramuses need the 3-strikes law but they're never CONVICTED of one strike. This dude sounds like he needs to a) be fired from Scandal and b) an initiation in prison.
