Actor Columbus Short has pleaded not guilty to felony battery charges stemming from a fight that left a man unconscious and with a broken nose.

The former Scandal star appeared for the arraignment in a Los Angeles courtroom on Thursday, according to The Associated Press. The incident occurred at a West Los Angeles restaurant on March 15, where Short allegedly sucker-punched the victim after a disagreement.

Short also faces a misdemeanor spousal battery case for allegedly threatening to kill his wife, who has a temporary restraining order against him.

Amid his legal troubles, the 31-year-old confirmed his exit from Scandal in April.
