"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.

This arrogant, entitled a**wipe deserves whatever he gets in jail. I hope his mama doesn't buy his way out of it because he's just gonna get worse; I guess that's possible but this is so hateful...

The police should handcuff Peter and let the homeless man punch him in the groin. Peter should never do anything that would cause him to go to jail because dude looks like a lady.

I waited a long time before clicking on the video because I find the idea so disgusting. This was a vicious and unprovoked attack. Why do people think it is fun to pick on the weak and helpless? The kid himself looked all weak and helpless at the camera before doing it, maybe it made him feel powerful somehow?


This sleeping man could be suicidal and barely hanging on to life as it is. Then someone comes and does this to him out of nowhere. People are often very psychologically cruel to the homeless and poor, but this is just taking it up a nothch.


I am sure this kid has had a rich and priviledged life. I once saw a gang of prep school kids harassing an old wino at the train station. I really don't understand it. Are they jealous of the poor who are suffering while they live in luxury?


It is very sad how evil some people are to others who are elderly, alone and destitute.

Whats worse than being punched in the nuts is being punched in the nuts by a snot nosed, rich, douchbag, kid like this. I hope that he is placed in jail and is punched in the nuts daily by some big dude and gets to feel the hopelessness of some of these homeless people.
I have to ask, did the homeless man get the $5? I bet that he gets more than $5 now.

He's an entitled, little rich boy. Thinks it's fun to hurt people, film it, post it and then laugh about it later with his friends.
Hope he meets up with Bubba in jail who will make him his bitch.
