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.

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".
