"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.

Put this Brat in jail and throw away the key. His beautiful mother is coping with her other son being in a bad car crash, and "Boy Brat" pulls this stunt to get the limelight! I'm sure the boys in the big house know how to teach him a lesson ..... and I hope they do!

Whats next Peter? maybe terrorizing an older lady working as a school bus drivers aide?
Theres a whole bunch of people out there who this punk deems "lower" than himself. Wonder where he got that idea? Mommy spent too much time dying her hair and popping in her blue contacts to instill any values or morals in this kid. Hes young thou so maybe he can still learn.
