A little late to this one, but last month it was revealed that the guy in the “Sham Wow “, As Seen on TV infomercials was arrested in February in Miami, after a fight with a prostitute. Both sustained injuries.

SOUTH BEACH, Fla., March 28 (UPI) — Vince Shlomi, the TV pitchman for the ShamWow product group, assaulted a suspected prostitute at a hotel in South Beach, Fla., police allege.

The Smoking Gun reported Friday that Shlomi, 44, was arrested by South Beach police and charged with a felony battery charge for allegedly punching 26-year-old Sasha Harris several times at the Setai Hotel.

Shlomi allegedly confessed to police he paid Harris $1,000 for sexual intercourse, but was forced to hit her after she bit his tongue as they were kissing.

The spokesman for ShamWow absorbent towels and Slap Chop food choppers allegedly told police he repeatedly punched Harris during the Feb. 7 incident in an attempt to make her release his tongue.

Now the Smoking Gun has released photos of both of them following the altercation.
