He was homeless once too. Then his life changed for the better. Young Lee became the co-founder of Pinkberry, the frozen yogurt chain. But like most self-made men, his temper remained quite volatile and mercurial.
Pinkberry co-founder, Lee beat the living daylights out of a homeless derelict who flashed a tattoo of two stick figures having sex at his female companions. Lee was driving his vehicle when Bolding, the homeless man, did the admittedly offensive deed.
Lee’s wife and female companions were seated besides him and got quite shocked. Later on, Lee returned with another accomplice and beat Bolding with a tire iron.
Bolding suffered several lacerations to the head as well as broken ribs. The savagery and barbarity of the attack left bolding in need of the services of a hospital.
Later on Bolding sued Lee. The judge declared after all the evidence that Lee deserved the seven years he was getting. Lee’s wife pleaded before the judge saying that their toddler child wanted to know where daddy was but she had no way of telling him.
She requested him with tears in her eyes that Pinkberry co-founder Lee be given a little leniency in regard to the sentence. But the judge was adamant that had a couple of Good Samaritans not intervened it would have been a murder case.
Young Lee was a kick boxer before he took up the Pinkberry business. Today however he is no longer linked with the business. Bolding, his victim, had been panhandling along the highway when Lee’s vehicle passed him by.
The other man who beat Bolding is said to be in hiding in Korea. He too deserves to be punished for the violent crime. Pinkberry is quite a name among the frozen yogurt food chains. It’s sad to see its co-founder reach such maniacal heights of sadistic behavior that he has to serve time behind bars.
