What would you charge to let a scantily clad woman beat you up?

A recently filed lawsuit alleges a website paid homeless men $50 to let scantily clad women beat them up and then placed videos of the slugfests on the Internet.

The scheme, according to the plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed this month in St. Petersburg , violates Florida hate crime laws that specifically protect the homeless.

The Associated Press reports:

Homeless advocates in Florida are suing the owner of a video company that they claim pays homeless men to be beaten up by scantily-clad women.

The lawsuit, filed this month in St. Petersburg, alleges that the videos sold on the website www.shefights.net violate Florida's hate crimes law that specifically protects the homeless.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of two homeless men, who said they were beaten by women while someone videotaped the assaults. One man said he suffered a dislocated arm, while another received a black eye and multiple lacerations.
