Teen Who Tried Wrestling Move on Principal Accused of Vandalizing Mall's Fake Gator

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.

Sosa-Hernandez was arrested last week after police say he tried to perform a wrestling move on his principal at Miami Southridge Senior High School. The report said the teen attempted a move called an "RKO" on the principal, Humberto Miret, in a hallway.

The incident was captured on a school surveillance camera, the report said. Cellphone footage was also posted to Sosa-Hernandez's Instagram page.

Sosa-Hernandez was booked into jail, where he was being held on $5,000 bond Monday on the new charge, records showed. Attorney information wasn't available.
