*TMZ posted a photo of “Scandal” star Columbus Short’s alleged victim during a bar fight in Los Angeles…and it’s not pretty.

It happened during an engagement party at Gabe’s Bar and Grill. Sources say Short leaped over the father of the bride-to-be and punched his 37-year-old victim in the face, knocking the man to the ground.

Witnesses tell the website that Short continued to punch him on the floor, until the victim “looked dead.” Short then left the bar.

The pic shows the victim on a stretcher with a neck brace before being transported to a nearby hospital.

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.
