Sosa, 18, first court appearance was on Thursday morning. Roy Ugarte, defense attorney called the arrest report “hands down one of the most insane” he’d ever read.
Ugarte who explained the difference between Roman-Greco wrestling and the pro wrestling that most consider staged for entertainment said “Everyone knows wrestling is fake."
The lawyer, who admitted to be a fan of wrestling, demonstrated the move and suggesting that Sosa was playing around. “It shouldn’t have been arrestable,” he added.
Sosa was granted release from jail without having to post a bond.
