Fatal confrontation: Mexican TV star must come back to US

MIAMI (AP) — A Florida judge has rescinded an order allowing a Mexican soap opera star to travel outside the U.S., saying he’s likely to face a more serious charge from a fatal traffic confrontation than the third-degree battery filed recently.

The judge set a hearing Monday to discuss the bond and travel order for Pablo Lyle, a star of the TV soap opera “Mi Adorable Maldicion.”

After Lyle’s arrest last Monday for punching 63-year-old Juan Ricardo Hernandez during a traffic confrontation in Miami, the actor posted bond, and he was granted permission to fly to Mexico, which he did. Then Hernandez died Thursday, and the Miami Herald obtained video that raised questions about the account Lyle gave police.

The Herald reports the video appears to show Lyle knocking down Hernandez with one punch.
