    Columbus Short’s Alleged Bar Fight Victim Refuses to Press Charges; Wants Money

    It looks like things are gonna work out A-Ok for “Scandal” star Columbus Short who allegedly punched to some dude in a bar so hard, he looked like he was ready for the undertaker.

    Well, anyways, said dude, a/k/a bar fight victim, is not inclined to press charges against Short, despite serious injuries to his head and back, all because of family ties … and he’s looking for a payday.

    The victim’s lawyer says he’s been in contact with Columbus’ management to come to some sort of settlement without involving police. The victim has made it clear to investigators he doesn’t want the case pursued criminally.

    Here’s what TMZ is reporting:

    The reason … the lawyer tells us both men are tight with the same people — the alleged fight went down at a family member’s engagement party — so the victim wants to resolve this as amicably as possible.

    If they end up settling, Short could end up paying a boatload in medical expenses — we’re told the victim suffered a facial fracture and a massive concussion from Short’s punch, as well as serious neck and back injuries.

    As we reported, Columbus turned himself in to police last week after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

    It’s possible the criminal case could go forward — but without the victim’s help, it’s very unlikely.
