Vince the Sham Wow Guy - Arrested

This should brighten everyone's day:

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 notes that during the 4 AM fight Harris sustained facial fractures and lacerations all over her face.

Ha! How many people didn't know this guy was a creep? I blogged about this tool last month. Check it out: http://qwertyaltofuori.blogspot.com/2009/02/ol-slappy-nuts.html

I saw a commercial and he uttered the line,"You'll love my nuts." NO lie. Bleech!

LOL, Red!

My first thought on this story: Yippee, I hope we never have to hear his annoying voice on those obnoxious commercials ever again.

Second thought: What the hell am I doing wrong if this loser can enjoy a $750 hotel room, and has $1,000 to drop on "entertainment"?

I hope I never have to see or hear this sick degenerate again!

You didn't talk about the rest of the article. Shlomi got hurt too. They were both arrested for aggravated battery, but all charges dropped since both of them were hitting the other. And if she was biting his tongue and not letting go, that would be starting the fight.

Here's the article, with the rest of the story.
