A Pensacola man was arrested Friday morning and charged with negligent manslaughter.
Donny Ray Dearmon, 38, of the 1600 block of East Jordan Street, was arrested around 10:45 a.m. at his residence.
Detectives Chris Grantham and Marcus Savage determined Dearmon caused the death of Lester MacDonald, 52, of the 1200 block of Scenic Highway, Pensacola, after he pushed him out the door of a local business on December 4, 2016, and MacDonald’s head hit the pavement.
The incident occurred just after midnight at Sir Richards Bar, 2719 E. Cervantes St., after the two men exchanged words inside the business.
MacDonald died later that day at his residence.
