'Jersey's' Sammi

Off Hook for

Punching Ronnie

1/26/2011 7:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

She coldcocked Ronnie with a HAYMAKER on an episode of "Jersey Shore" -- but  Sammi Sweetheart ain't facing the same fate as "Teen Mom" Amber Portwood ... in fact, she's off the hook completely ... for now.

It was a pretty shocking promo for this week's episode -- Sammi slugs Ronnie across the jaw during an argument ... an act of violence nearly identical to the thrashing Amber Portwood unleashed on her baby daddy just a few months ago ... the same thrashing that landed her behind bars.

As we previously reported, Amber was charged with felony domestic violence over the on-air beatdown -- but according to the Chief of Seaside Police, Sammi won't be prosecuted whatsoever ... at least until Ronnie decides to press charges.

Calls to Ronnie's rep weren't returned -- but seeing as the footage was shot last summer, we're guessing he's moved on. Meanwhile, Amber still faces three years in prison.

Abuse by a penis or a vagina should NEVER EVER EVER BE TOLERATED! PROSECUTE HER! All this stupid violence has got to be stopped. It must not be tolerated by women - and men don't have to take it either - men are feminized enough.. now they're supposed to accept bhitch slaps by lowlife s*** whhores? PROSECUTE NOW!

Had this been Ronnie punching her, they'd arrest him, period.

Jwow is always punching someone. Or she's planning to do it. Nasty little snot. I salivate at the thought of them prosecuting this arrogant ass. Battery is not just alright.

First off, the relationship has been violent from the beginning. Look at season one when he would get up in her face, and hold her in place...all the while screaming at her. Hello, that's abuse. Then she gets mad at Nicole and Jenni when they are the only ones in the house who are telling her what he's doing? Sammi needs therapy. Finally, assault is assault, even if that guy doesn't press charges. Finally, I ask myself why I care.

One was a domestic violence assault in front of a child.

The other is a drunken punch from some overpaid dbags who put on a big show for the cameras.

Also, one pressed charges and one didn't. Not much the cops can do if no one presses charges.

Not a good comparison TMZ.

Big difference between the two. Amber has been verbally and physically abusive to her baby daddy since the very first episode. Her behavior isn't going to change it's probably the type of environment she grew up in.

Sammi had a showmance with Ronnie, she choose not to interact with the rest of the cast because she was all up his butt. She hit him when she knew for a fact that he was friends with her people in that house.

The lesson here is if you go on one of the reality shows don't get caught up in a showmance, he cant/wont last.

The script told her to punch him, she did, hence her not being charged with anything. I didn't know that Al Pacino was charged with murder after he threw that dude off the roof and shot him(Scarface), wait it was acting? ahha....

Now does everyone see why I hate on the "sweetheart" so much? I knew she wouldn't be able to hide her true self much longer, and now her stock has plummeted. If she did that when the cameras weren't rolling, she'd be waking up with a broken jaw.
