Soap opera star Corey Sligh is slowly recovering from a brutal attack that occurred Thanksgiving night. He and his girlfriend, Alisa Berhorst, have made it a tradition to bring Thanksgiving dinner to their friends who are stuck working, and they were doing that when the incident occurred. The "Young and the Restless" star had just pulled into a Rite Aid parking lot and saw two guys in a car speeding, doing donuts while onlookers screamed. Sligh said something to the men and ended up being purposely hit by their car and then brutally beaten. Nearly two months later the actor says he is not harboring any hatred for the men. Sligh spoke exclusively with The Wrap and explained what he remembers after telling the driver to slow down. "He looked me dead in the eye and kicked open his door as hard as he could into my chest. Then I said, 'Look, I don't have any problems, man.' And I walked away, off to the left of his car. That's when I heard tires squealing behind me. I turned around and the car was 3 feet away and coming at full speed. The next thing I know I'm up on the hood of the car, flipping off of the side. I thought it was over. They both attacked me. One guy hit me repeatedly in the face. I looked up and saw the other guy shoving Alisa and [our female friend]. I tried going over there while the first guy was hitting me. I had to tackle one of the guys to get him off and that's when my arm snapped," says Sligh.READ MORE

Off-Key 15:21PM EDT

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!"READ MORE
