Uh oh! A scandal's brewing! Someone call Olivia Pope!

Scandal star Columbus Short is under investigation for a bar brawl earlier this month. The reason for the offense? Defending his woman's honor.

Celebrity gossip sites are reporting that Short was in a bar in LA when another patron made condescending remarks about Short's wife, Tanee McCall.

McCall filed for divorce in late 2013, but the two have reconciled and decided to work things out.

It's unclear just what the other bar patron said about McCall, but whatever it was, it earned him a punch to the face. Now the patron, as well as another person who was in the bar at the time, are saying that Short broke the man's nose.

Short left the bar while the other man was being treated at a nearby hospital. A representative for Short has not made a statement at this time.

Police are investigating the incident.
