Looks like Columbus Shorts victim he punched out last week will not be pressing charges. Apparently due to family ties.
Columbus was involved in a fight at an engagement party in L.A. that ended with him punching a guy breaking his nose and hospitalizing him. Short turned himself in on one count of felony aggravated battery.
According to TMZ:
The victim’s lawyer tells TMZ, he’s been in contact with Columbus’ management to come to some sort of settlement without involving police. We’re told the victim has made it clear to investigators he doesn’t want the case pursued criminally.
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.
It’s possible the criminal case could go forward — but without the victim’s help, it’s very unlikely.
