Pinkberry Co-Founder Young Lee Accused of Beating Homeless Man

From The Daily Beast:

According to the Los Angeles Police Department, on June 15, 2011, Lee was driving a rented Range Rover along Vermont Avenue in east Hollywood, California, with an acquaintance in the passenger seat when he spotted a homeless man in the street asking passersby for money.

“The detectives told me Lee was somehow offended by a tattoo that was on the defender’s arm, and it was a silhouette of two people in a sexual position,” Lt. Paul Vernon, commanding officer of the Central Detective Division, told The Daily Beast.

A verbal argument ensued, at which point Lee parked his car and, according to witnesses, approached the panhandler from behind and struck him in the back of the head with a tire iron. Blood was pouring down the man’s face. He ran from the attackers, but Lee and another suspect chased him down, and Lee again used the tire iron to strike the man’s arm, head, and body multiple times. During the attack, the victim recalled hearing Lee repeatedly yell, “Say I’m sorry! Say I’m sorry,” according to an LAPD search warrant affidavit obtained by The Daily Beast. The man was later admitted to the hospital and treated for various cuts and bruises on his head and torso, as well as a fractured left forearm.

  1. KingTaco,

    Wait, is this for real? I’m not familiar with the daily beast, do they make up stories that sound outlandish for fun or something? Trendy Ice-cream Mogul Randomly Assaults Homeless Man With Tire Iron is just too awesome of a headline to be real right? I have to imagine that the guy behind pinkleberry would have better things to do than drive around in a rented SUV and beat people at random.
