What an asshole.
The incident took place in June 2011 on an off-ramp of the Hollywood Freeway at Vermont Avenue, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
Young Lee, who happens to be one of the original founders of Pinkberry, was stopped at a light when he was approached by a homeless man seeking money, police said.
Words were exchanged, and Lee and another man in the car chased the homeless man and "beat him down" with the tire iron, police Capt. Paul Vernon said.
