Florida Teen Arrested for Wrestling Fake Alligator Days After Attempted Wrestling Move on Principal

A Florida teenager who was arrested on April 10 for an attempted wrestling move on his high school principal was arrested again on April 15 after a video he shared on Instagram showed him wrestling and damaging a fake alligator at a shopping mall.The incident with the display alligator at The Falls shopping center in Miami took place on March 30, and 18-year-old Gianny Sosa-Hernandez of Cutler Bay was arrested for criminal mischief on April 15, according to the Miami-Dade Police Department.Police said the teenager damaged the display alligator, which was valued at $3,690.

The footage, originally shared on Instagram and later released by police, shows Sosa-Hernandez taking off a shirt, jumping over the fence, and tackling a fake alligator in a shallow pond.Sosa-Hernandez appeared in court on April 16.

Local media reported that the arrest record said he had apologized for the alligator incident.

Miami-Dade County Judge Renatha Francis, appearing exasperated by Sosa-Hernandez’s reappearance in court, told him he should “find something else to do” or if would keep becoming “a media sensation for all the wrong reasons.”Since the start of April, several videos have been shared on an Instagram account attributed to Sosa-Hernandez.

They include footage of him leaping over fences and into a swimming pool, scaling shelves in a Walmart and diving into a large basket, and simulating sexual intercourse on a bed inside a furniture store in front of a female employee.
