After the drivers exchanged words, Lyle himself gets off the car and hits the man of Cuban origin on the face leaving him unconscious on the pavement. Witnesses notified the police, so the 32-year-old actor was arrested.
In the arrest warrant it was specified that the blow had caused a wound in the skull and an internal hemorrage, for which the assaulted had to be taken to Miami’s Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he was admitted in intensive care; however, the man passed away hours later as a consequence of the injuries caused by the blow.
Lyle was released after posting a $ 5,000 USD bail, on Wednesday afternoon, when the victim was still alive, he was able to get on a plane and leave the US towards Mexico.
When it was known that the victim had died, the Mexican press tried to reach Lyle, but the actor just replied: “I can not speak absolutely nothing about this situation”.
If the actor of the film “Mirreyes vs. Godinez” decides to stay in Mexico, he can be summoned via the Foreign Relations Secretariat and comply with the necessary formalities for such cases. However, it said that he could reach an economic agreement with the relatives of the deceased to avoid going to jail for homicide.
