A high school student was arrested Monday after he was filmed fighting a fake alligator in a Florida mall.

A teenager — identified by police as Gianny Sosa-Hernandez — can be seen in the video, released by the Miami Dade Police Department, taking off his shirt and jumping over a barrier into the mall display before “attacking” the fake reptile.

The incident occurred on March 30 in the courtyard of the Falls Shopping Center in Miami Dade County, according to WPLG. The alligator cost $3,690 and was damaged in the alleged attack, reported CBS4 Miami, which posted a video of the scene Twitter.

In the video, Sosa-Hernandez is captured throwing the alligator into a nearby display pond and attempting a wrestling move that police called an R.K.O. Sosa-Hernandez is then seen turning the gator on its back and pinning it.

An R.K.O. is a move coined after WWE pro-wrestler Randy Orton that involves a person jumping into the air, grabbing the back of an opponent’s head and slamming their face into the mat as they fall back down.

The teen was reportedly charged with criminal mischief for the incident and was being held on $5,000 bond at a correctional facility in Miami-Dade County Monday.

According to ABC News, Sosa-Hernandez was identified by a witness who saw the video. After he was arrested Monday, the teenager allegedly confessed and apologized to police.

In a separate incident last week, Sosa-Hernandez was arrested after allegedly attempting to perform the same wrestling move on his principal Humberto Miret at Miami Southridge Senior High School.

In that case, Sosa-Hernandez faces charges of battery on a school official and interference with an educational institution. He was reportedly released without bond, according to WPLG.

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra aren’t rushing to have kids, Jonas said Monday.

Jonas was promoting his new animated movie, “Ugly Dolls,” in an interview with Extra when he was asked if he was competing with his brothers to see who would have children first.

NICK JONAS SAYS HE WAS ‘DONE’ WITH MULTIPLE CEREMONIES TO PRIYANKA CHOPRA AFTER LOOKING AT PRICEY BILL

“No,” he said. “We’re taking our time.”

Jonas, 26, and Chopra, 36, were married in December. Jonas’ eldest brother Kevin, 31, was married in 2009 and their middle brother Joe, 29, is set to be married to “Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner later this year.

“They’re going to have a beautiful wedding,” Jonas told Extra.

He went on to explain that as a groomsman in Joe’s wedding, he would be helping plan the bachelor party.

“For the planning aspect and everything like that, you need me,” he said. “I know Joe very well.”

NICK JONAS SAYS JONAS BROTHERS ‘SPENT A YEAR BASICALLY DOING THERAPY’ BEFORE GETTING BACK TOGETHER

When Jonas and Chopra were married last year, they celebrated with two ceremonies — a Christian wedding in the U.S. and a Hindu wedding in India. Additionally, the couple had pre-wedding rituals in India that lasted for two days, Chopra told James Corden during an appearance on “The Late Late Show” in February.

The youngest Jonas revealed he was “done” with all the ceremonies on an episode of “Carpool Karaoke” with Corden in March.

During the episode, Jonas — along with brothers Kevin and Joe — were hooked up to a lie detector. Corden asked Jonas if at any point he thought he was “done” with the weddings and Jonas admitted: “Yes,” which was confirmed by the lie detector.

“It was when I looked at the bill!” he added with a laugh.

Fox News’ Madeline Farber contributed to this report.

Greece’s Supreme Court has upheld a damage award of 800,000 euros ($900,000) for the family of a student who was fatally shot while riding a motorcycle past an army camp.

The court’s decision, made public on Tuesday, upheld a lower court ruling which the Greek government had appealed. The government argued the amount awarded was excessive.

The 22-year-old student died on July 25, 2000 from bullet wounds he received while riding at night past the Skaramangas army camp west of Athens.

A junior officer was convicted of firing the rounds while investigating reports of suspicious whistling near the camp’s perimeter fence. He received a 13-year prison sentence.

The motorcycle was on a highway 170 meters (yards) away from the fence when the student was hit.

Police: Welfare agency had reports on couple whose son died

Westlake Legal Group police-welfare-agency-had-reports-on-couple-whose-son-died Police: Welfare agency had reports on couple whose son died Wichita (Kan) fox-news/us/crime fnc/us fnc f4958aed-e8eb-5f5b-97ba-60993420751e Associated Press article

Child welfare authorities had received abuse reports about a Wichita couple whose 3-year-old son was found dead in a crib at their mobile home where a baby also was found in critical condition, according to police.

Capt. Brent Allred provided no details Monday on the Kansas Department for Children and Families’ involvement with the family of Zaiden Javonovich, whom investigators believe had been dead for days before his body was found. The welfare agency, which has been under fire after other child deaths, declined to comment while it’s investigating the case.

Although welfare officials had received reports, police officers hadn’t received such reports before finding the child’s body Thursday while responding to a domestic disturbance at the home. Police encountered Zaiden’s parents — 28-year-old Patrick Javonovich and 22-year-old Brandi Marchant — as they walked back to the home.

Inside, officers found Zaiden’s body wrapped in a blanket in a crib. Allred said Zaiden suffered “obvious injuries,” but he didn’t elaborate.

Officers also found an injured 4-month-old boy, who was taken to a hospital in critical condition. Allred said the baby is improving.

“It’s shocking to see adults treat their kids in the way these two were treated,” Allred said. “It’s, I say, pathetic, because that’s what it is.”

The parents are jailed on $200,000 bonds on suspicion of first-degree murder and two counts of aggravated child endangerment. Sedgwick County prosecutor’s office spokesman Dan Dillon said he expects a judge would appoint the couple an attorney when they make a first court appearance Tuesday afternoon.

The home, where the family had lived for a couple months, had food and no signs of drug use, police said. Allred said Marchant has two other children but doesn’t have custody of them. Javonovich has one other child who sometimes visits on weekends.

The Wichita area has seen several child abuse homicides. The victims include 3-year-old Evan Brewer, whose body was found encased in concrete, and 5-year-old Lucas Hernandez, whose body was found under a rural bridge months after he went missing.

The agency had extensive involvement with both children before their deaths. While campaigning last year, Democratic Gov. Laura Kelly repeatedly described problems in the child welfare system as among the most pressing the state faces. Lawmakers now are considering increasing funding to add more child welfare workers.

Bella Thorne and Mod Sun are over, she announced Monday.

Thorne, 21, captioned a photo of her and the 32-year-old rapper, “I  will always love you. All good things must come to an end.”

She punctuated the snap with a broken heart emoji.

No reason has been given for the split, and Mod Sun hasn’t addressed it publicly.

The pair dated for more than a year.

The breakup comes two months after Thorne announced she and girlfriend Tana Mongeau — who she dated concurrently with Mod Sun — split.

“There’s no negativity at all,” Mongeau added.

In January, Thorne said of her relationships with Mongeau and Mod Sun, “I don’t think anybody will really understand the bonds that I share with Mod or Tana … Yeah, we joke around about poly, but we aren’t in the sense that we don’t put a word, a box or label too many things. It is what it is.”

Jenna Jameson has been on an epic weight loss journey since welcoming her daughter Batel in April 2017.

The former adult film star has shed 80 pounds and is documenting her progress on her social media accounts. She also offers her followers diet tips and encouraging words about inner beauty, accepting yourself and mental health.

JENNA JAMESON SHARES BIKINI PHOTO AFTER MASSIVE KETO DIET WEIGHT LOSS

In a new post, Jameson, 44, showed off her slimmed-down figure in a shocking side-by-side comparison photo.

“UUUGH. I didn’t want to post this before picture. But once I mulled it over in my mind, I realized how important normalizing women’s true bodies is,” she wrote. “This is normal. This is beautiful.”

She then explained how she’s realized that even though one can thin, they can still be living an unhealthy lifestyle.

JENNA JAMESON SHARES NEW HIGHER CALORIE KETO DIET MEAL PLAN

“It’s very possible to be thin and frightening unhealthy. So thickness does not equate to being sick, but mine was. I was pre diabetic, and a literal sloth. I remember back when I weighed 80 lbs and was starving myself… I thought that was pretty at the time but had no clue,” she wrote.

“I’m now a healthy size 4 and can keep up with my kids,” Jameson said. “Remember how important your precious health is… don’t stress on what is staring back at you in that mirror.”

Jameson keeps to a strict keto diet and workout plan which includes circuit training.

A pair of proud bald eagle parents at Big Bear Valley in California have welcomed new chicks, with the new additions hatching on a live webcam.

The eagles – Jackie and her mate, Shadow, are the stars of the Friends of Big Bear Valley and Big Bear Eagle Nest Cam Facebook page. “Chick #1 is out! All of Shadow’s fussing helped it get all the way out of the shell! Welcome to the world!,” the group posted on Sunday.

The chick started to work its way out of its egg on Friday night local time, eventually gaining freedom on Sunday morning.

Shadow was “very antsy” as the chick emerged from its egg, standing up and fidgeting with it and another egg in the nest every couple of minutes. “Nervous first time dad!” quipped the Friends of Big Bear Valley.

When Jackie returned to the nest, what followed was described as an “epic standoff,” between the two birds with Shadow closely guarding the newly hatched chick. He eventually moved, letting Shadow protect the chick.

The cute chick was initially dubbed ‘fuzzy bobblehead’ on account of how it unsteadily held its head up.

“Chick #1 is adorable and getting stronger. The bobblehead action has slowed down as its neck muscles strengthen,” the organization said, in a Facebook post on Monday morning.

A BALD EAGLE TRIO OF TWO MALES AND A FEMALE IS SUCCESSFULLY RAISING EAGLETS IN ILLINOIS

The second chick arrived on Monday. “#2 is out. It is resting while #1 gets fed. New babies need to nap a lot.” the group posted on its Facebook page.

Other bald eagles have also been garnering attention recently. A trio of bald eagles, which consists of two males and one female, is successfully raising eaglets in the backwaters of the Upper Mississippi River in Illinois.

The trio lives on the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge, where they are enjoying a successful 2019 nesting season. Three eggs hatched at the nest between March 27 and April 1, according to the Stewards of the Upper Mississippi River Refuge.

An “American Idol” contestant made a daring move to save herself a spot in the competition on Monday night: She sang a cover of judge Katy Perry‘s popular song “The One That Got Away.”

Alyssa Raghu decided to make a last-ditch effort to stay on the show after learning she didn’t have enough votes to automatically make it to the Top 10.

The 17-year-old from Orlando, Fla., donned a sparkling, sleeveless jumpsuit as she took the mic and sang a ballad-like twist on Perry’s fast-paced 2010 hit.

‘AMERICAN IDOL’ JUDGE KATY PERRY ‘COLLAPSES’ ON STAGE AFTER CONTESTANT’S STEAMY PERFORMANCE

At the beginning of the performance, cameras panned to a grinning Perry. As Raghu held her final note, all three judges stood up to applaud the teary-eyed teen before giving her feedback.

“First of all, how dare you!” joked Perry, as the 17-year-old wiped away tears from her eyes. “How dare you come out and sing that song 100 better than me.”

“No, I could never. I could never,” repeated Raghu as Perry praised the “beautiful” rendition.

The 34-year-old artist then encouraged Raghu – who was cut from the competition the season prior – to keep perfecting her craft, echoing advice Luke Bryan’s gave earlier.

“I think this has been a really important master class. It’s like the second semester. And I think you’ve learned so much and you’ve got so much time, and I just think that it’s going to happen if you … keep applying yourself the way you keep applying,” continued Perry.

‘AMERICAN IDOL’ JUDGE LUKE BRYAN FLOODED WITH COMPLAINTS ABOUT ‘HORRIBLE DECISION’ ON SHOW

Lionel Richie credited Raghu’s “heart and drive” for keeping her going, despite rejection in the past.

“The sky is the limit for you. We are in love with you, and I hope America will see your face very soon. Do not think that this is at all goodbye,” concluded Richie.

It turns out Richie was right. At the end of the show, Perry saved Raghu and secured her a seat in the Top 10.

“And @katyperry still believes in the SAUCE! @AlyssaRaghu is in the Top 10! #AmericanIdol,” the show confirmed in a tweet, posting a GIF of a thrilled Raghu.

Perry admitted it wasn’t an easy feat.

“I don’t know if anyone noticed but I almost broke down in tears having to pick one of my children #americanidol,” the singer tweeted Monday night.

But many fans praised Perry’s choice.

“YAY!!!! LOVE HER! #AMERICANIDOL,” one Twitter user replied.

“Thank you for picking Alyssa! She deserves this!” another exclaimed.

Mexico releases spy agency’s files on current president

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news Mexico releases spy agency's files on current president MEXICO CITY fox-news/world/world-regions/americas fox-news/world fnc/world fnc bc683cac-4ec8-57db-9f94-1c9a5edaf52a Associated Press article

Mexico’s domestic intelligence agency was once so paranoid it even spied on members of the former ruling party.

One such member was current President Andres Manuel López Obrador, who previously belonged to the Institutional Revolutionary Party.

The government released Tuesday a trove of old intelligence documents drawn up by spies in 1979 and 1980 from the now-extinct Federal Security Department. A few claimed López Obrador was a local leader of the Mexican Communist Party.

López Obrador left the PRI party in 1988 and won the presidency last year.

Upon taking office, he opened up old intelligence archives from the dissolved agency.

The president has said: “I was not a member of the Communist Party, but I did support social activists.”
