Pinkberry Co-Founder Sentenced To 7 Years In The Slammer For Beating A Homeless Man With A Tire Iron!

young lee pinkberry cofounder sentenced seven years in prison

Justice, like frozen yogurt, is a dish best (soft) served COLD!

Pinkberry's co-founder Young Lee was convicted in November of beating a homeless man with a tire iron in downtown Los Angeles. On Friday he was finally sentenced to seven years in the slammer.

According to reports, it all started when a homeless man stepped in front of Young's car and begged for money way back in 2011. Young was with his fiancée at the time and felt the man's actions were inappropriate, so he did what no one should do, he parked his car and attacked the man with a tire iron!!!

He broke the guy's arm and gave him a concussion in the the process!

Ugh! How horrible!

Luckily good samaritans intervened and even wrote down Young's license plate number so the authorities could eventually apprehend him.

The judge, who gave him the maximum sentence allowable by law on Friday, called the 49-year-old's crimes "a savage attack on a defenseless person."

    Good. Arrogant jackass. I have never tried Pinkberry because of this. I won't put a dime in this man's pocket. I hope the guy sues the hell out of him.

    We throw a man who has created jobs for the community and contributes to the wealth of this country in prison, for kicking a losers ass. A loser who begs for money and probably steals and is a drug addict. We keep enabling the lazy and penalizing the hard working folk. This is the worst story ever. The lazy loser should have sued Lee and that's it. He still would have gotten free money but this hard working man would at least not be wasting 7 years in prison for beating a lazy ass drug addicts ass-

    Re: MGFunk – It probably scared him when the guy stepped in front of his car, but you don't get a free road rage pass to tire iron beat someone because you have money, and he doesn't. It's assault, and loose cannon's going to do jail time. He could have killed him, as if a broken major bone and concussion wasn't enough.

    Re: MGFunk – What you're insinuating is that corporate business mavens should be able to beat people who aren't doing as well financially and get no jail time as long as they cough up some bucks. Nice world you want to live in. Sounds like feudal England and the reason people grabbed the ships to the New World a few centuries ago.
