Gianny Sosa, 18, was charged with battery of Miami Southridge Senior High School’s principal Humberto Miret. Sosa was released from jail on Thursday without bond after a brief court appearance, where even the presiding judge seemed to find the humor in the incident. Miret was not hurt during the smackdown re-enactment, but it was captured on video.

Roy Ugarte, the high school senior’s defense attorney, said that the teen’s arrest report was “hands down one of the most insane” reports he has ever read.

“Everyone knows wrestling is fake,” Ugarte said in court. “It shouldn’t have been arrestable.” Ugarte also claimed that the teenager was horsing around, and did not actually attack his principal. The story itself caused presiding judge Renatha S. Francis to smile at the absurdity of the case.
