This past Thanksgiving is likely one Corey Sligh will never forget. The actor, who has popped up on The Young and the Restless in various roles, stopped at a Rite Aid drug store in Los Angeles with his girlfriend Alisa Berhorst, and one comment lead to a violent altercation, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The couple was originally making a quick stop before going to help feed those who were less privileged when a car in the parking lot was hopping curbs and doing donuts. Sligh noticed that the two men inside the vehicle were narrowly missing hitting people, and he suggested that they slow down. Instead of doing that, they purposely hit Sligh with the car and then got out and beat him!
The men eventually sped off, but later crashed the car and were arrested by police. Sligh is still hospitalized at Cedars Sinai, where he will stay for at least a few more days. He reached out to fans via his Instagram, saying:
"Hey kids, went to feed some people last night who don't have blessed thanksgivings and along the way got struck by a drunk driver! Have a surgery to go and another couple days in the hospital but should be fine soon! Thankful to still be on this great planet! Love y'all!"
Thankfully, Berhorst was not injured in the incident and, according to a report by CBS, she has stayed at his bedside since the accident. Some sources are now saying that the men who were arrested were actually drunk at the time of Sligh's beating.
Can you believe that complete strangers would actually get so violent over absolutely nothing? Sligh is obviously going to be fine eventually. Do you think that his role on Y&R might actually expand thanks in part to the publicity of this incident? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below.
