On February 7, 2009, Offer was arrested in Miami Beach, Florida
on a charge of felony battery
after an altercation with a 26-year-old prostitute
. Offer, who appears in police reports under his real name Vince Shlomi, contended that he struck the prostitute when she "bit his tongue and would not let go." Prosecutors later declined to file formal charges against either individual.
Apparently he was also a scientologist at one time.
