    A Miami high school student arrested after trying to perform a wrestling move on his principal is facing a new charge after police say he was recorded vandalizing a display alligator at a local shopping center.

    Gianny Sosa-Hernandez, 18, was arrested Monday on a criminal mischief charge in the March 30 incident at The Falls, Miami-Dade Police said.

    Police said Sosa-Hernandez was recorded jumping over a wooden pedestrian barrier, grabbing a display gator and throwing it into a pond before he pretended to wrestle the gator. The gator, valued at $3,690, was damaged in the incident.

    The recording was later posted on social media, police said. The shopping center's manager was able to confirm that it had been recorded there.
