Dressage’s Bean Pleads Guilty to Assault

A North Carolina dressage trainer charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon causing serious bodily injury accepted a plea deal Friday. Leslie Bean, of Zebulon, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault causing serious injury.
A judge sentenced the August Dressage operator to a 45-day suspended jail sentence, 18-months unsupervised probation, and a $100 fine. A substance abuse assessment and treatment program was required.
Wake County Assistant District Attorney Harper Gwatney says Bean has completed the substance abuse program.
Bean was arrested in late July after she assaulted her husband with her vehicle. He has undergone two surgeries since the incident.
Bean, who has also gone by the names Leslie Newman and Leslie Bates, pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated (DWI) in February 2014.
Bean’s defense attorney had no comment when we contacted him.
