A Pensacola man was arrested and charged with negligent manslaughter Friday morning after an incident back in December 2016.

The Pensacola Police Department said 38-year-old Donny Ray Dearmon caused the death of 52-year-old Lester MacDonald at Sir Richards Bar on East Cervantes Street.

Detectives said Dearmon pushed MacDonald out of the door of the business. That's when police say the victim hit his head on the pavement.

Police say MacDonald later died that same day at his home.
