Try to imagine worst-case scenarios for a corporate communications team—a company's co-founder being arrested for beating a homeless man with a tire iron would likely rank somewhere near the top of the list.

And while Lee is not on Pinkberry's current list of executives and board members, the company has nevertheless found itself being dragged into a negative news cycle.
