2 charged with beating actor in Los Angeles on Thanksgiving


Prosecutors say two men have been charged with assaulting an actor who had told them to leave a Hollywood parking lot where they were driving wildly on Thanksgiving.

Corey Sligh, a 27-year-old actor who has appeared on "The Young and the Restless," suffered a broken arm and other injuries in the attack.

Prosecutors say Sligh was walking with two others to take Thanksgiving dinner to a friend Thursday when he saw the men driving dangerously in the parking lot.

He urged them to stop or leave, and was hit with the car door. Prosecutors say the men left, but quickly returned and beat Sligh.

One suspect, 26-year-old Dusan Lilic, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to assault, battery and DUI.

His companion, 23-year-old Nikola Ilic, pleaded not guilty to battery.
