Peter Rosello, the son of former Real Housewives' star and Venue magazine editor Alexia Echevarria and stepson of Hialeah political power broker Herman Echevarria, could be facing charges after videotaping himself punching a homeless man in the groin in South Beach.
In the video posted on YouTube on Monday, Rosello approaches a sleeping homeless man, says that he's going to give him money, and then punches him in the nuts and runs.
TMZ reported this morning that the Miami Beach PD is trying to identify the victim in order to open an investigation. Now, Miami Herald reporter David Smiley tweets that the department says they have probable charges to arrest Rosello.
Rosello appeared with his mother on the first season of Real Housewives of Miami, during which it appeared he had an interest in modeling.
"What a fuck nigga butthole sniffer," reads his latest Tweet.
