In January 2012 Pinkberry co-founder Young Lee was arrested for viciously attacking a homeless man and now LAPD police records have revealed that the frozen yogurt millionaire was packing illegal guns.
A search warrant affidavit filed by a detective in LAPD’s Asian Crime Unit revealed that two handguns registered in Lee’s name were found including a Colt .45 and a Para Ordnance brand .45.
The handguns are not allowed to be in Young Lee’s name because in 2001 he received a felony conviction for possession of narcotics. Under his conviction he can not “own, buy, receive, possess, or have custody or control of any firearms.”
Lee has also received a pass conviction for possession of a firearm.
During his arrest in January Lee had used a tire iron to beat a homeless man on the off-ramp of a Los Angeles freeway.
It’s still not clear if the two guns were found inside Lee’s home or in one of his high-end cars which include a 2009 Rolls-Royce Phantom, 2007 Ferrari 599 GTB, and a 2010 Mercedes G Wagon.
If the guns are fully connected to Lee he could face yet another felony charge for possession of forbidden weapons based on his past convictions.
The next time you eat at a Pinkberry just remember it’s the company a complete degenerate founded.
Will you stop eating Pinkberry frozen yogurt based on the dangerous actions of it’s co-founder?
