*A man who claims his jaw was broken by actor Columbus Short has filed a restraining order against the star that will keep him 100 yards at bay.

Jason Hill took out the R.O. on Monday after telling the court Short beat him so badly in the February 24 attack, he needed two surgeries to fix his broken jaw, reports TMZ.com.

Hill claims he continues to look over his shoulder — because after the alleged attack, Short and two other men appeared at his North Hollywood residence on April 5 and threatened “acts of violence” against him.  View surveillance footage here.

Short’s lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, tells TMZ the fight took place while Hill and Short were playing pick-up basketball, and Hill hit the actor first. As for the alleged April 5 threats, Holley says Short went to the apartment complex to visit friends and never even saw Hill.

Short is currently starring in “Death at a Funeral.”
