    Phrasal verb "ride out"

    I have tried to use "ride out" in its second meaning according to Longman dictionary: "if you ride out a difficult situation, you are not badly harmed by it".
    Would you please correct my mistakes?

    The well-known actor had gone on holiday to ride out the scandal he caused by punching another guest in the pub.

    Re: Phrasal verb "ride out"

    It's OK with the exception of the fact that people in pubs aren't usually called "guests", unless they're attending a private function which is being held in the pub. I would just say "... by punching someone/a man/a woman in the pub".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
