‘The Young & The Restless’ Actor Corey Sligh
Corey was hit by a car and beaten by an alleged drunk driver on the Thanksgiving holiday after he told the suspect behind the vehicle to slow down, CBS News reports.
The actor and model, who has played a bartender and waiter on the soap opera, was heading into a Rite-Aid. He told the allegedly drunk driver to slow down in the parking lot and that prompted the attack.
Corey suffered a broken arm from the attack. He was hospitalized. His girlfriend, Alisa Berhorst, said the experience was “scary.”
“The whole imagery of everything that happened last night is still very fresh and scary,” she told KCAL9.
She said she didn’t know if the attack would stop.
“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,’” she continued.
The two suspects were arrested. The suspects fled the scene, but were tracked down by a witness after crashing their car, The Hollywood Reporter reports.
We’re so glad Corey is OK and thankful he wasn’t hurt any worse.
