Forty-nine-year-old Young Lee, who is no longer affiliated with Pinkberry, was sentenced to the maximum term Friday.

A jury convicted Lee of assault with a deadly weapon last November and the judge declared him to be a significant threat to the community.

Prosecutors said Lee confronted Daniel Bolding in June 2011 after the transient flashed a sexually explicit tattoo to several people in Lee's car, including his fiancee. Lee drove away and came back with another man who'd been in the car and beat Bolding.

Bolding was struck twice on the head and suffered a broken arm before witnesses stopped the attack.
