Young Lee, 47, is charged with one felony count of assault with a deadly weapon, with a special allegation that the assault caused great bodily injury, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office said. The homeless man suffered a broken arm and several cuts to his head.
If found guilty, Lee, who was convicted of possession of a controlled substance and carrying a loaded firearm in 2001 faces up to seven years in prison. He was released on $60,000 bail, the district attorney's office said.
