Corey Sligh spent his holiday in the ER after this horrifying parking lot encounter

The Young and the Restless actor, Corey Sligh, had the worst Thanksgiving ever. As in, the police and a trip to the ER were involved.

Sligh, who has had bit parts as a waiter and bartender on the popular soap, was trying to do a good thing on Thursday, but his plans were wildly interrupted.

According to a local CBS report, the actor and his girlfriend were on their way to deliver Thanksgiving dinner to a friend when they came across a drunk driver doing doughnuts in a Rite Aid parking lot. When Sligh asked him to slow down, the driver tried to run him over, then exited the car and beat him up, leaving him with a broken arm.

Sligh's girlfriend, Alisa Berhorst, told KCAL 9 News how it all went down.

"The whole imagery of everything that happened last night is still very fresh and scary," she said. "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.'

"The guy walked up on him like 'I'm in the mood to kill somebody and this is who it's going to be because he told me to be careful and slow down and go away," she said.
