Restraining Order - Against 'Stomp the Yard' Star

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."

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.
