A high school student was arrested after allegedly trying a wrestling move on his high school principal.
Gianny Sosa, 18, faced a judge the next morning after pulling an ‘RKO’ move on the principal at Miami South Ridge Senior High School.
Police said the principal told them Sosa assaulted him in the second-floor hallway.
An ‘RKO’ or ‘Randy Keith Ortonville,’ named after the wrestler who came up with it is a ‘finishing move,’ involving grabbing an opponent by the neck, jumping into the air and driving his head onto the mat in the fall.
“Miami-Dade County Public Schools works diligently to cultivate a safe learning and working environment for students and staff.”
“It’s unfortunate that anyone would instigate a situation for self-promotion that could bring harm to others. Instances of disruptive and threatening behavior will be handled swiftly and result in severe consequences.”
“In addition to an arrest, the student’s lack of judgment will result in disciplinary actions in accordance with our Code of Student Conduct.”
The school is located in the 19300 block of SW 114th Avenue in Miami.
