'Real Housewives' Star

Hobo Pressing Charges

Over Nut Punch

HOBO JUSTICE!!!
TMZ has learned, the homeless man who was assaulted on tape by "Real Housewives of Miami" dumbass Peter Rosello has informed police he wants to press charges ... and now, cops are on the hunt for the reality star.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, the homeless man in the video was contacted by police shortly after the footage surfaced this week -- and he asked to press assault charges against Rosello, son of housewife Alexia Echevarria.

TMZ posted video of the cruel "prank" early today -- showing Rosello punching the guy in the balls while he was sleeping, then running off. 

Now, law enforcement sources tell TMZ, a detective has been assigned to the case and cops are actively looking to speak to Rosello ... and possibly even arrest him on a felony assault charge.

Rosello faces a felony charge because of new laws in Florida stemming from similar "pranks." The new laws classify attacks on homeless people as hate crimes, meaning they carry stricter penalties.

If convicted, Rosello could face at least a year behind bars.

Attempts to reach Rosello were unsuccessful. Calls to "Real Housewives" were not returned.

Ugh. I remember him on the show. The kid was dumb as a rock. His mom got him into modeling because he had nothing going for him except his looks; his mom said as much but not in so many words. I feel sorry for her; she's one of the more level-headed women on the show, but she probably spoiled him and it's tough to raise a decent kid in an environment of entitlement.

I can't wait to see this kid get arrested for this. Who the FFFFFF does he think he is?? They should let the homeless man punch him in the nuts and make him pay his rent for a year in a motel.

What this spoiled immature punk did to this homeless man, tells us ALL we need to know about him! IF he will do that, and think that it's funny and okay, he will do just about anything. Glad he (or whoever it was) made the video public so they could nail his pathetic rear end. Wow, his parents should be real proud. And if they try to make excuses for him and/or get him off, they are enabling his spoiled disgusting butt. Or will they try and give the homeless guy $20 bucks to drop the charges against their little baby boy???? Time will tell!

What a nasty little ****. The spoiled little brat has no regard for others and should serve time in jail so he could see how it feels to be down on his luck.
