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).

I wonder if the Shamwow absorbs blood off of hotel room carpets?

They had a funny thread about that on FARK.

I'm just surprised a hooker costs $1000. And based on her mugshot, I'm surprised that there's a doable hooker out there who isn't an undercover cop.

Been better if he would have strangled her with the towel.

What I dont get...someone is bitting down on your tounge not letting go, and you start punching them in the face??? Hell he probably did more damage to himself by doing that. I would never hit a woman but in this situation you have to do something. A swift knee to the groin (yes it would hurt a woman too) should have relaxed her jaws.

Other then that I allways thought this guy was a jaggoff, guess my feeling was right....

Miami is crazy and people come down here thinking that anything goes and this is what happens.

Rule #1: You go with hookers and there is a risk of abnormal behavior.

Rule #2: Florida is famous for busting people back to Jim Morrison to Joe Francis from "Girls Gone Wild" to this tool last week.

Could have been any number of reasons to no reason at all for the biting. Personally, I think he should run naked on the field in front of James Harrison and see what happens.

I guess he felt the need to "Slap Chop the Ho"

I wonder if he was wearing the headset? The skank might have gotten her head stuck in it when the tongue biting occurred... :noidea:

Did she come with a free "Graty"? For $1000 I hope so.

I believe they interviewed a neighbor who was quoted as hearing...

"I can't do this all day!"

Did she come with a free "Graty"? For $1000 I hope so.

I think that's what she was trying to give him, but he didn't let her finish.
