"Real Housewives of Miami" star Peter Rosello was arrested for battery today after socking a homeless man in the balls last week, this according to law enforcement.

20-year-old Rosello -- the son of housewife Alexia Echevarria -- was arrested for simple battery, which was categorized as a felony on the police report because Rosello attacked a homeless person.

As we reported, Florida has a law that classifies attacks on homeless people as hate crimes, meaning they carry stricter penalties.

He's currently being held on $5,000 bond.

TMZ broke the story ... Rosello stupidly posted video of the incident online last week, showing him sneaking up on a sleeping homeless man and punching him in the groin. The homeless man was contacted by police shortly after and the man decided to press charges.

He is a disgrace to man kind, anyone who would harm or hurt a homeless person needs to be in jail or have the same thing done to him.

I'm thinking something different. This is a sexual act in nature. For homophobes who fear they might be gay, this is the only way they can make contact sexually without suspicion of their motives. Why not kick him instead of using his hand? Latent yearnings

Will you half-wits at TMZ stop calling these reality show douchebags "Stars"? They are NOT stars... stars are performers who have become famous because of their talent, not mouth-breathers who've become celebrities thanks to s***-dwelling TV producers.

It won't be very long until TMZ is reporting this mildewed ***bubble has killed himself in some drugged out driving accident. That will be a good day.

Here we go again... a "celebrity" apology blaming their behavior on drinking [or whatever] "...my actions were INAPPROPRIATE" then the court prescribes either "anger management", "substance abuse" or whatever bullsdh1t classes, probation and community service and off he'll go. I'm sure the hobo made out like a bandit-as well he should have. Doubt that he has a penny of the hush money but it was fun while it lasted.

There's more involved than a 1-time assault.

This guy does not have the benefit of a safe sleeping environment, the way most of us do. After this, how can he have the peace of mind to ever fall asleep again in the open?

His sentence should be 20 years of never knowing when somebody will hit him in the nuts. Asleep, awake, eating or just talking...WHAM!!! over and over again and never knowing when the next strike will come. Make him live it constant fear of pain.
