A Mexican actor was convicted in South Florida on Tuesday of fatally punching a man during a road rage confrontation. A six-person jury in Miami-Dade circuit county found Pablo Lyle, 35, guilty of manslaughter, according to court records. He faces up to 15 years in prison, the AP reports. "Two lives were destroyed by simple roadway anger, a situation we see far too often on our streets and on streets across the country," Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle said in a statement.

Before his arrest in the United States, Lyle starred in several Televisa telenovelas and a Netflix crime show called Yankee. His first major role was the lead on La Sombra del Pasado. Lyle has claimed he acted in self-defense and was trying to protect his children in March 2019 when he punched Juan Ricardo Hernandez, 63, during a confrontation at a Miami intersection. The unarmed Hernandez suffered a traumatic brain injury and died four days later at a hospital.
