The testimony of the musician Leo García generated a high impact as a result of the beating that the musician denounced on his social networks, and that according to him had arisen as an attack linked to homophobia.
However, in the last hours a police version revealed that the event had been precipitated by other causes.
“Look how they hit me, I don’t want to accuse anyone because it didn’t hurt, but they did this to me,” García said in a series of videos that he posted on his Instagram account. “This is not makeup, this is how they left me in General Rodríguez, the place where I live,” added the singer, who at the time of recording his testimony had blood lesions on his face.
However, after the case became public, the Buenos Aires party police launched an ex officio investigation.
In addition, the police were able to find images showing the beating, which were obtained from security cameras near the scene. According to “high sources of the case” accessed by Infobae, the images deny García’s version and, according to the investigators themselves, are related to a “drunken fight.”
The interdict that ended with acts of violence did not take place in a brewery, but in a kiosk a few meters from the place that García had originally indicated. There, and always according to the police version, there were neighbors of the place.
According to what was declared by witnesses, García appeared at 1:30 in the morning, “visibly upset, dressed in a gray hoodie, asking for a liter beer, which he was denied.” In commerce, the artist was not recognized by the young woman who attended the kiosk.
From what the authorities found, García has a wound on his forehead and another on his lip, as a result of the blows he received. Although the video shows the attacks, the face of his main attacker is not clearly visible, but it would be a neighbor in the area. The musician, however, did not want to initiate criminal proceedings.
In this sense, the prosecutor in the case requested the intervention of a family court to analyze García’s personal situation after the close antecedent of “Chano” Moreno Charpentier.
