Corey Sligh being beaten has come as a very real shock this week for longtime fans of the actor and model. The 27-year-old man says that he was hit by a car and suffered a broken arm in a violent assault. When he tried to get up, he was then attacked and almost beaten to death by 2 men. United Press International News notes this Sunday, November 30, 2014, that although Sligh is expected to make a recovery and his injuries are not life-threatening, he is badly hurt and in a neck brace at this time.
It seems this brutal assault was unfortunately very real, and no “The Young and the Restless” TV episode plot — Corey Sligh beaten actually happened this week. The handsome star says the incident took place shortly before Thanksgiving dinner. The 27-year-old model was reportedly hit by an oncoming car, then attacked by a pair of men who had been driving recklessly. Sligh’s girlfriend, Alisa Berhorst, was there as a witness to the startling crime that left the acting man with more than a few bruises.
Following Sligh being taken to a local hospital, the 2 suspects (both men) in this assault case have been arrested. In a statement this week to an affiliate news source, Berhorst relays how her boyfriend was beaten, wrongfully and shockingly. She says that the she and Corey were traveling to bring some Thanksgiving dinner to one of their friends, and had paused at a local West Hollywood Rite Aid on the way. That’s when problems occurred, thanks to one irresponsible motorist.
While the two were getting out of the car, they saw a disturbing spectacle. Apparently, there was a driver in the Rite Aid parking lot that was not in solid control of the vehicle, or at least driving exceedingly recklessly. Berhort shares that Corey Sligh yelled at the man to slow down; they had nearly been hit by the car in the parking lot of the small pharmacy, she added. The bad situation could have ended there if the driver had just left, but it didn’t — Sligh was soon attacked.
“They almost hit people in the parking lot. They were hitting curbs, and Corey said, ‘Please slow down or we’re gonna call the cops, just go home,'” Berhorst declared in a statement earlier this holiday weekend.
It appears this act may have angered the driver against the man. The wild motorist didn’t pay heed to their warning, the Inquisitr News states in an update on the “Corey Sligh beaten” story. Instead, the driver revved his engine and actually hit the 27-year-old “The Young and the Restless” actor. After using his car as a battering ram, he then left the vehicle and began viciously hitting Corey. There was no provocation behind it; Berhorst says that all her boyfriend had done was tell them to slow down and get out of there.
The press release goes on to share the damage he sustained as a result of the violent assault. Corey Sligh — who has worked as both an actor and a popular model — suffered a broken arm and numerous other injuries. In addition to being in a neck brace, his arm was said to be in such bad condition that surgery was required to help mend it. “The whole imagery of everything that happened last night is still very fresh and scary,” his girlfriend concluded.
There’s only one question left in this shocking case. What happened to the two cruel and reckless suspects that left Corey Sligh beaten? Justice was apparently served, as police officers from the LAPD confirmed that they were able to bring two men later that night. The individuals were said to have left the scene after their assault on “The Young and the Restless” actor and model, but authorities found them a short time later. They had crashed their vehicle in the West Hollywood area, and were arrested, while believed to be drunk.
