'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.

0126-sammi-punches-still-exs-mtv
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.

1 smack vs. Amber repeatedly hitting, kicking and threatening her ex in front of their child. That is why she has felony charges. TMZ you're comparing two very different situations.

I think this is stupid. I live right next to Seaside Heights in Toms River and I know first hand that the police in the Heights will give you a ticket for doing anything. I got one over the summer for having a GPS on my dashboard but they let this fly? Complete bull**** on their part. This case would be a slam dunk for the prosecutor.

Ronnie may be a cheating douche-bag, but her weepy, wannabe stuck up ass chose to stay with him no matter what she knew, saw, read or heard. Still, assault is assault and fair is fair... Lock her ass up too!

Details?    

Disgusting low life, trash.
You can put lipstick and hair extensions on a pig, but it's still a pig.

Girls who wish to mature beyond pond s***, please avoid the bar seen, as this degenerate type of behavior festers there.

okay i never comment on sites like this but this reporting and peoples comments are STUPID enough that i have to waste my time to do so. Amber was charged with a crime because it was done IN FRONT OF her baby and done repeatedly. and it is different if a man hits a women because men can hurt them way more than a woman usually can. both are bad but dont claim it to be the same because it is WAY different

Jen your comment is probably the dumbest comment so far.
The law does not discriminate darling
Assault is Assault- Makes no difference if there is a toddler in the room or NOT!
Wait you need to hit someone over and over again or in front of a child to be prosecuted? You didn't finish highschool did you?
It is not WAY different!!!!
If anyone breaks the law like this trash did they should be in jail--You do the crime you do the time!

GRYFFINDOR!    

yes, assault is assault no matter if its a guy hitting a girl or the other way around. yes, there is a double standard, to all the guys complaining on here. however, most guys dont complain about double standards when they're considered "pimps" and players and girls are called whores and skanks. they dont complain when they make more money at work for the same work as women. yes, double standards exist. get over it.

For those saying Sammi did it once and Amber did it repeatedly in front of a child...so what? The authorities chose to investigate and charge Amber without the assistance of the child's father. They are in different states so maybe that's a factor.

Ronnie got charges pressed against him for assaulting someone with one punch ( even though he knocked the guy out). I GUARANTEE you if people pressed hard enough, the chief wouldn't have a choice but to charge her. It's on video and she clearly commited assault/battery. She's an whiny idiot and a biyatch with some seriously warped self- esteem and he is a manipulative idiot, so I guess they are good for each other. I just can't believe she can't pull her head out of her ass just to look better in the eyes of the public. EMBARRASSING!!! (but entertaining as hell!)

If that comment was the dumb, what does that make yours? It does make a difference if a child is in the room, especially when it's a repeated thing. The charges specifically said she was endangering her child.

The douche bag behind NASCAR's Dale Earnhardt Jr's demise....


Apparently he is a major investor in PEPSICO and wants the same girl Jr does, but she doesn't want him, so he forbids them to be together. I guess when your a trillionaire you aren't used to being told "NO" very often. If he can't have her, he won't let anyone have her. And he beats his employees.
