Corey Sligh, an actor that played a bartender on “Young and the Restless”, was delivering a Thanksgiving meal to a friend with his girlfriend when two guys driving erratically didn’t appreciate being admonished.
Sligh wound up in the hospital after he was hit by the men’s car and then beaten.
Model and actor Sligh and his girlfriend were reportedly delivering a Thanksgiving meal to a friend at a West Hollywood Rite Aid when he approached two guys speeding in the parking lot, doing donuts and driving erratically.
Corey’s girlfriend, Alisa Berhorst, told KCAL9 in Los Angeles, “They almost hit people in the parking lot. They were hitting curbs, and Corey said, ‘Please slow down or we’re gonna call the cops, just go home'”.
But the two men allegedly drove right into the 27-year-old actor with their car, before getting out of their vehicle and started beating him up.
Berhorst said, “The guy walked up on him like, ‘I’m in the mood to kill somebody and this is who it’s going to be because he told me to be careful and slow down and go away'”.
Corey was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and required surgery on his broken arm.
The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to the news station that they arrested two men in connection with the crime, after a witness followed them out of the parking lot and observed them crash nearby.
On Saturday, Sligh showed his sense of humor as he shared a story about the incident from the Hollywood Reporter and posted a photo of himself in a neck brace and flashing a peace sign.
Corey joked, “Well, I guess I can finally say “I made the Hollywood Reporter!” lol. #thankful no matter what to be here!”
