Sligh told the men to slow down, which led to the men hitting him with their car and then getting out of the car to beat him up. Sligh suffered a broken arm and was treated at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. 

Cops have arrested two suspects. Police officers report that the suspects fled the scene but later crashed their car and were tracked down by a witness.

"The whole imagery of everything that happened last night is still very fresh and scary," Berhorst, who is also an actress, told CBS. She added that she is relieved that Sligh is OK.

On Saturday, Sligh posted a photo of himself on Instagram with a quip:

"Well, I guess I can finally say 'I made the Hollywood Reporter!'"

He added: "#thankful no matter what to be here! Hope to heal up in the next few weeks with Rehab and family! Thanks for all the love and I'll keep y'all posted! #hollywoodreporter #hollywood #cali"
