Miami Herald reports lawyers for Lyle told judges Thursday that it was self-defense. Circuit Judge Alan Fine set a Stand Your Ground hearing for Aug 22. Surveillance video shows that during a March 31 traffic incident, 63-year-old Juan Ricardo Hernandez got out of his vehicle and angrily tried to confront Lyle and his brother-in-law. Lyle got out of the passenger seat, ran towards Hernandez and punched him. He suffered a traumatic brain injury and died four days later.
Lyle says he was defending himself from what he believed to be a violent attacker.
