Not exactly food related, but I did a post on Vince, the ShamWow and Slap Chop guy a few weeks ago and felt that I should update you on what he’s up to these days — punching prostitutes.

ShamWow pitchman Vince Shlomi (i had his last name wrong, oops) was arrested last month on felony battery charges for allegedly punching a stripper, according to the Web site TheSmokingGun.com.

Police reports obtained by the site claim that Shlomi met 26-year-old prostitute Lenea Harris at a Miami nightclub, and subsequently brought her back to his room at Setai Hotel. Shlomi allegedly paid Harris $1,000 for “straight sex.”

That’s went things took a turn.

Shlomi told police “that he kissed [Harris] when all of a sudden [Harris] bit his tongue and would not let go,” according to the report.

Shlomi then punched Harris several times until she released his tongue, and then ran to the lobby to call police. Harris suffered several cuts and fractures to her face.
