The 31-year-old actor, who will not be returning to his hit show Scandal this season, pleaded not guilty that day for his felony battery charge after allegedly being involved in a bar fight in March, the AP reports.

Columbus also is facing a misdemeanor charge in a spousal abuse case for allegedly threatening to kill his wife earlier this year.

    He apparently quit smoking. Been seeing recent pics of him with a vape machine instead of the cigs. Quitting will make you gain weight for sure. Whether deserving or not, idk, but it takes a strong person to withstand losing a job, house, family and to ensure very public reputational damage.
