    It seems anxiety from the financial crisis is reaching new highs, but the tipping point for one individual came at the Lehman Brothers gym in the midst of the company’s collapse.



    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.



    “Frankly, I sat there and listened and I’m with the guy who apparently, the day before Barclays announced they were coming in and Lehman had already filed for bankruptcy, went over to him in the gym and punched him because that’s how I feel when I, you know, when I watched that,” Ward said on the Oct. 6 “Power Lunch.” “I didn’t think he was contrite at all, I thought he was arrogant.”



    Ward confirmed previous reports about the incident that reportedly occurred Sept. 21 and said the information came from “two very senior sources.”



    “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.”



    Ward determined Fuld deserved the beating based on his testimony before the committee.



    “I thought he was shameless,” Ward said. “I thought it was appalling. He blamed everyone. He blamed, as you say, ‘naked short sellers’ over and over in case we didn’t get the point, when in fact hedge funds like Harbinger had money locked up in Lehman and was shorting it to try and make the most of the money that they already had. He blamed everybody but himself.”



    Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy in September 2008 and its assets were later snatched up by the British bank Barclays for $1.35 billion, which included Lehman’s Midtown Manhattan office tower with a $960 million price tag.

    Regarding his stock options point, he IS right; I've learned some basic knowledge of things like that from my dad, and if you leave them be, stock options will go to maturity and just poof out of existence, and you must also pay the strike price, which they apparently didn't include.

    A layman's explanation of that for those who don't know it:
    Spoiler


    Overall, damn big number, but $480 million is a bit higher than it actually was, he's right about that. It's probably a wee bit below $400 million.

    Well it said he was knocked out cold, so maybe he can get away with it.

    The dude that will get sued probably hit him cause he no longer has any moniez. No use in suing a rock, as you won't get anything from it.

    I would hit him to the floor, pour gasoline on him and set him on fire. Then I would take a piss beside him and when he tries to move into my beam of piss I would move just a bit so he cant reach it

    What a fucktard. He should be thrown into prison and the government should then give the prisoners a legal right to rape him.
    Fuck you.
