True Crime: Most Shocking Moments in Entrepreneurship
Pinkberry founder Young Lee
In early January, the frozen-yogurt chain founder was arrested in Los Angeles for felony aggravated assault stemming from an incident in June 2011, when he allegedly beat a homeless man panhandling near his car. The victim was reportedly hospitalized with a broken arm and cuts to the head. This isn't the first time the entrepreneur has been in trouble. Lee was reportedly convicted in 2001 of a misdemeanor for carrying a loaded firearm. Even though Lee left his position at Pinkberry in 2010, and is only in an advisory position now, the company he built has unfortunately been linked to the violent incident.
