    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). (6 pages)

    He should've picked up a German prostitute. You know the Germans make good stuff.

    He must've used the slap chop on her, a good technique when down and dirty with some skanky ho. she was a clever one though, tongue biting blocks the sheer force of a falcon punch, the standard finisher for situations such as these.

    though, on second thought the 'facial fractures' seem to be less along the lines of fractures and more towards dirty smirks.

    Where have all the hobos gone to?

    Felony battery? That's an odd charge for this as if she got charged with felony battery as well which she would/should then it's more of a mutual affray. The Miami Beach Police do thing weird anyway.

    I'm positive this'll get plead down to something like breach of the peace.

    Tomorrow I'll see if I can get the dirt from one of the responding officers.

    Edit: After seeing those pictures of the victim, this is bullshit for felony battery. How'd their Sgt sign off on that A-form? The state attorney's office is going to throw that out...should make for a fun pre-file.

    According to the article, those pics were mugshots from a prior bust. Not the night of. Or have you seen other ones?

    Na, I'll pull them up tomorrow and report back. I could do it now, but I'm too lazy to go back out to my car. They should be public record anyway as most custodial records are here.
