Since we don't condone violence around here, we are not going to call this the most awesome story of the day. We'll just tell you this: CNBC has confirmed earlier rumors that Dick Fuld—the CEO who ran Lehman Bros. into the ground—got himself knocked da fuck out at the company gym:
While former Lehman CEO Richard Fuld was testifying before the House Oversight Committee Oct. 6, CNBC reported he had been punched in the face at the Lehman Brothers gym after it was announced the firm was going bankrupt. CNBC and Vanity Fair contributor Vicki Ward said Fuld was attacked at the gym on a Sunday following the bankruptcy.. "From two very senior sources – one incredibly senior source – that he went to the gym after … Lehman was announced as going under. He was on a treadmill with a heart monitor on. Someone was in the corner, pumping iron and he walked over and he knocked him out cold. And frankly after having watched this, I'd have done the same too."
