He was an hour late, but the son of The Real Housewives of Miami‘s Alexia Echevarria surrendered to authorities about 1 p.m. today after a video of him punching a sleeping homeless man in the groin popped up on Facebook.
Peter Rosello, 20, an aspiring model, was charged with felony battery.
He faces a year in prison if convicted!
After Miami Beach Police became aware of the video, homeless outreach personnel fanned across the island to track down the victim, identified as 62-year-old Gary Lee Brown.
In time, they found him — and he said he would press charges.
Rosello was supposed to have been arrested Friday but he lawyered up. Well-known criminal attorney Richard Sharpstein negotiated his surrender. He told the Miami Herald that Rosello will plead not guilty.
