ShamWow Pitchman

Beats Hooker

to the Punch

3/27/2009 6:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The pitchman for the super absorbent ShamWow has been arrested for not having good clean fun ... unless you consider hiring a hooker who almost bites your tongue off fun.


Vince Shlomi was arrested in Miami Beach last month after cops say he allegedly hired a hooker, whom he took back to his hotel. According to the arrest affidavit, obtained by The Smoking Gun, Shlomi began kissing the hooker when she allegedly "bit his tongue and would not let go." 

According to cops, Shlomi then punched the prostitute several times until she released his tongue. Both the prostitute and Shlomi were arrested for felony aggravated battery.

Excuse us for living, but it seems justified to punch a hooker when she bites your tongue. Apparently, prosecutors agreed, because they declined to prosecute either one.

love it!    

They both need to go to jail for quite some time. He should for punching the chick more than once. And she needs to for being a hooker and for biting his tongue! If everyone wants Chris Brown to be locked up for hitting Rihanna, when she may have very started it, then this man should go to jail too! Can't just send one and not the other!
