Pinkberry Co-founder To Stand Trial For Alleged Assault

A homeless man, testifying for the first time, says Young Lee attacked him with a tire iron in June 2011, beating him until witnesses told Lee to stop. A Los Angeles County judge ordered the co-founder of frozen yogurt giant Pinkberry on Thursday to stand trial for allegedly assaulting a homeless man on the side of an East Hollywood road after the victim testified that the entrepreneur repeatedly struck him with a tire iron.
