    Vince Shlomi, best known as television's ShamWow! guy, was arrested in Miami last month for beating up a prostitute who allegedly tried to bite his tongue off. Did you know that? Now you do.

    The Smoking Gun got hold of the police report and Mr. Shlomi's mug shot. As you can see, he didn't escape unscathed. The facts of the case, briefly, according to the police report:

    * Shlomi meets Sasha Harris in a Miami club. They go back to his hotel.
    * She propositions him for "straight sex." He pays her a thousand bucks in cash.
    * He kisses her.
    * She "bit his tongue and would not let go."
    * He punches her in her face repeatedly until she lets go.
    * He runs down to the hotel lobby.
    * They both get arrested.

    This'll teach us not to pull the ol' "Slap Chop" on overpriced cannibal hookers.

    ShamWow Guy In Slap, Chop Bust
    TV pitchman battered hooker in South Beach hotel room brawl

    MARCH 27--Meet Vince Shlomi. He's probably better known to you as the ShamWow Guy, the ubiquitous television pitchman who has been phenomenally successful peddling absorbent towels and food choppers. Shlomi, 44, was arrested last month on a felony battery charge following a violent confrontation with a prostitute in his South Beach hotel room. According to an arrest affidavit, Shlomi met Sasha Harris, 26, at a Miami Beach nightclub on February 7 and subsequently retired with her to his $750 room at the lavish Setai hotel. Shlomi told cops he paid Harris about $1000 in cash after she "propositioned him for straight sex." Shlomi said that when he kissed Harris, she suddenly "bit his tongue and would not let go." Shlomi then punched Harris several times until she released his tongue. The affidavit, a copy of which you'll find here, notes that during the 4 AM fight Harris sustained facial fractures and lacerations all over her face (she is pictured here in mug shots snapped following busts in 2008 and 2005). After freeing his tongue, a bleeding Shlomi ran to the Setai lobby, where security summoned cops. Harris refused to cooperate with officers, who recovered $930 from her purse. "Both parties had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from their persons," police reported. In a brief telephone interview, Harris declined to answer TSG questions about her run-in with Shlomi, though she did say she is considering a lawsuit against the pitchman. Asked if she worked as a hooker, Harris declined comment. As seen in the below mug shot, Shlomi was also injured during the fracas and, court records show, was treated at Mount Sinai Medical Center. While Shlomi and Harris were both arrested for felony aggravated battery, prosecutors this month declined to file formal charges against the combatants. Police records list Shlomi's occupation as "Marketing," but make no mention of his affiliation with the ShamWow or the Slap Chop, both of which sell for $19.95 (plus shipping and handling).

  17. This was posted yesterday- the other thread featured pics of the hooker, as well. Strangely, they both seem to have a strangely *satisfied* look on their faces...

    Wow, makeup does wonders for that guy on TV. I had no idea he was in his mid 40's. He looks much younger on the commercials. In these pictures he looks like a total mess. :scowl:
