Yanny, who has known James for several years, told the Associated Press that allegations of James's infidelities and the resulting media "feeding frenzy" have ruined his friend's life. James entered a treatment facility this week, but Yanny declined to say what the West Coast Choppers owner is being treated for.
The latest predicament for James, 40, is a citation for vandalism involving a photographer's vehicle near James's Long Beach, Calif., bike shop, CNN reports.
Local detectives reportedly were given a copy of the video that celebrity photographer Ulises Rios captured of the March 25 run-in, which shows James and another man confronting Rios in an SUV parked near James's bike shop. The incident resulted in slashed tires, a dented door and a scratched window on the vehicle, claims attorney Mark Haushalter.
