“Young and the Restless” actor Corey Sligh suffered multiple injuries, including a broken arm, after being hit by a car and beaten by two allegedly drunk men on Thanksgiving, according to a CBS report.
Sligh was preparing to deliver a holiday meal to his friend on Thursday when he entered a Rite-Aid in Los Angeles with his girlfriend, actress Alisa Berhorst. They reportedly noticed two men speeding and doing donuts in the parking lot, and Sligh told them to “please slow down or we’re gonna call the cops, just go home,” Berhorst told CBS.
The two men then apparently hit Sligh with their car, and then got out of the vehicle to attack him. Sligh, who has a recurring role on “The Young and the Restless” and on other soaps, was treated for injuries including a broken arm, which required surgery, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
“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,” Berhorst said.
Police have arrested two suspects. According to police, the men fled the scene, but a witness trying to help tracked them down after they crashed their car.
Berhorst told CBS that she’s thankful Sligh is okay, and that they both made it out of the incident alive.
