Authorities arrested "Scandal" actor Columbus Short Wednesday on a felony battery charge, prosecutors said.

Short, 31, is accused of punching and knocking out a patron at a West Los Angeles restaurant on March 15, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said in a statement.

He was booked by the Claremont Police Department and released on $50,000 bail, the statement said.

A representative for the actor could not be immediately reached for comment.

Short plays Harrison Wright, a member of fixer Olivia Pope's team, on the hit ABC series.
