Columbus Short Gets a Restraining Order From Jason Hill After Alleged Attack
Former “Stomp the Yard” star Columbus Short has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from a man who claims the actor, who also stars in the new movie “Death at a Funeral,” broke his jaw back in February in what he called a “Pearl Harbor style” assault. Jason Hill got the retstraining order yesterday, after telling the court Short beat him so badly he needed 2 surgeries to fix his broken jaw.
Hill claims he still fears for his safety — because after the alleged attack, Short and two other dudes rolled up to his North Hollywood residence on April 5 and threatened “acts of violence” against him (see surveillance video).
Short’s lawyer, the effervescent Shawn Chapman Holley, tells TMZ the fight occurred while Hill and Short were playing pick-up basketball, and Hill struck the first blow. As for the alleged April 5 threats, S.C.H. says Short went to the apartment complex to visit friends and never even saw Hill.
