Pablo Lyle's weekend visit to Miami ended like a dramatic telenovela that included a heated argument and time behind bars.
The 32-year-old celebrity starred on"Mi Adorable Maldición," "La Sombra Del Pasado" and "Corazón Que Miente." He also made People's en Español's 50 Most Beautiful list.
On Sunday, Lyle was arrested after an alleged road rage incident that wasn't scripted for TV.
According to the arrest report, Lyle exited a car to punch another driver in the face. Witnesses say he knocked the victim unconscious and sped away, but not without someone writing down the license plate.
Miami Fire Rescue paramedics rushed the unidentified man to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center.
The driver, who was with Lyle claims the incident went south after he made a U-turn at the intersection of Northwest 27th Avenue and Northwest 14th Street. He claims this enraged the other man causing him to block their car at traffic light, police said.
The Mexican actor told officers his 6-year-old son, Mauro, was in the back seat of the car. Lyle alleges the man banged on their window first before he punched him in self-defense because "he was scared for his family's safety," police said.
Lyle appeared in Miami-Dade County Court this week. Prosecutors charged him with battery. He is out on a $5,000 bond and granted permission to travel outside the US.
Officers say the victim remains unresponsive from a fracture to the right side of his skull and internal bleeding caused by the fall.
