Mexican actor Pablo Lyle says he wants his manslaughter case dismissed under Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” self-defense law for fatally punching a driver during a road-rage incident in Miami.

On Thursday, the Miami Herald reported that lawyers for Lyle told judges that it was self-defense.

Circuit Judge Alan Fine set a Stand Your Ground hearing for August 22.

Surveillance video shows that during a traffic incident on March 31, 63-year-old Juan Ricardo Hernández 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 Hernández 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.

After the hearing, Lyle talked to the media for the first time and thanked his fans for their “support, love, and kindness” they have shown him during this time.

In June, the judge banned Lyle from returning to Mexico and seized his passport.

The actor is under house arrest and wears an electronic tagging device while he awaits his sentence.
