New, 31 comments

What the? ABC reports that Young Lee, co-founder of Pinkberry ubiquitous froyo chain, was arrested today at LAX "on a warrant for beating a homeless beggar [in] LA last June." Supposedly a man approached Lee's Range Rover in downtown LA and asked for money. Lee and an accomplice followed the man and beat him with a tire iron badly enough that the man was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. Lee is currently in custody and bail is set at $60,000.
