The 18-year-old was charged with battery on a school official and interference with an educational institution
A Florida high school student was arrested after allegedly trying to ‘RKO’ his principal.
Gianny Sosa, a senior at Miami Southridge Senior High School, was charged with battery on a school official and interference with an educational institution.
The ‘RKO’ is a wrestling finishing move made famous by WWE star Randy Orton, with imitators going viral over the last few years for posting their attempts online.
In involves an individual running up and grabbing another person’s neck from behind before slamming their face into the ground.
Footage has emerged of the 18-year-old unsuccessfully trying to perform the move on Humberto Piret, before the principal wrestles the teen to the ground and subdues him.
Further footage, shared on Instagram, shows a heated argument between the pair afterwards as Miret calls the police and Sosa accuses his principal of restraining him.
“Oh, now that I’m recording you don’t want to touch me? You don’t want to hit me now?’ Sosa said to Miret in the video.
“It’s crazy, ain’t it? Now that the camera has your face, you don’t want to hit me. Now that the superintendent might see this, you don’t want to touch me.”
It was not immediately clear whether the student or Miret will face discipline by the Miami-Dade County Public Schools district.
