David Hasselhoff appears to be a hot commodity these days. According to CBS, about 550 cutouts of the Baywatch star advertising "Iced Hoffees" have been stolen from Cumberland Farms convenience stores all over the Northeast and one of these attempted thefts turned violent on Tuesday (August 20th.)

The Connecticut Post is reporting that a clerk from a store in Shelton, CT attempted to chase down a black SUV who removed the advertisement from a light pole but ended up getting struck and dragged by the vehicle. He is currently in critical condition.

61-year-old Hasselhoff tweeted on Wednesday (August 21st,) "I am shocked & truly saddened about the Cumberland farms store clerk tragedy My heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with him and his family! WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS HOW I FEEL AT THIS MOMENT PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO SAY A PRAYER THAT HE MAKES A FULL RECOVERY!!"

Don't mess with the Hoff.
