Thursday’s Hot Clicks: Teen Who RKO’d His Principal Arrested Again for Pulling Same Stunt at Mall
Maybe now he’ll learn
A Miami high school student who was arrested last week after attempting a pro wrestling move on his principal was jailed again for doing the same thing on a fake alligator at a mall.
Gianny Sosa-Hernandez, 18, spent two nights in jail after his first arrest before a judge ruled he was eligible for pre-trial services and ordered him released. He was arrested again Monday on charges of criminal mischief stemming from a stunt at a shopping center, according to WPLG Local 10.
Video posted on Instagram by Sosa-Hernandez on April 3 shows the teen throwing the fake alligator in a water feature and performing WWE wrestler Randy Orton’s signature RKO finishing move on it before flipping it over for the pin.
Police only became aware of the incident after seeing the video online, according to WPLG.
The alligator, which is valued at $3,690, was allegedly damaged in the stunt, according to CBS Miami.
Sosa-Hernandez’s Instagram account features videos of him pulling a variety of stupid stunts, like pantomiming sex on a bed at a furniture store, doing a backflip off of a shelf at Walmart and jumping over two fences to hop into a stranger’s pool.
Sosa-Hernandez appears to have been released from jail; a search on the Miami-Dade Corrections website pulls up no results for his name as of Thursday morning.
The teen got off easy in the case involving his principal, with his lawyer arguing that it was just a joke and that “everyone knows wrestling is fake.” It is unclear if this new arrest could impact the first case, according to CBS Miami.
Tim Anderson started a fight with a batflip
The benches cleared in Chicago yesterday afternoon thanks White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson unleashing a massive bat flip after his fourth-inning homer.
The threats of violence came two innings later when Royals pitcher Brad Keller plunked Anderson. Managers Ned Yost and Rick Renteria almost started fighting themselves.
Anderson’s bat flip and Keller’s retaliation started a conversation across the league, including from Blue Jays outfielder Randal Grichuk who called out Anderson without mentioning him by name. Anderson’s response was pretty perfect, but Grichuk tried to act like he wasn’t talking about him.
