LOS ANGELES (AP) — A co-founder of the popular frozen yogurt chain Pinkberry has been ordered to stand trial on charges he beat a homeless man with a tire iron in California.

A judge on Thursday denied a motion to dismiss the assault with a deadly weapon case against Young Lee.

Lee is free on bail. He is no longer is affiliated with Pinkberry.

Forty-two-year-old Donald Bolding testified this week that he was begging from drivers on a freeway off-ramp last year in Hollywood when his shirt rode up and revealed a sexually explicit tattoo.

He says a man he identified as Lee got out of a car, demanded he apologize to his wife, then attacked him. Bolding was struck twice in the head and suffered a broken arm before witnesses stopped the attack.
