MIAMI (Reuters) - A former topless dancer who was famously cleared of battering a Florida nightclub patron with her "crazy big" breasts has shed her oversized silicone implants and put one of them up for auction on eBay.
The woman known professionally as Tawny Peaks said on Wednesday she recently came across the implants in a box in her closet after watching a television discussion about crazy things sold on eBay and decided, "Why not ... I don't need it any more."
"Somebody might bid on it. It's like the first boob to be sued over in a lawsuit," she said.
Peaks said she would autograph the auctioned implant for the winner but would keep its mate "for good measure."
She explained that she had her size 69-HH implants removed and underwent breast reduction surgery in 1999 after retiring from the business to start a new life.
"They were like really big, crazy big," said Peaks, who described herself as a happily married homemaker and mother of three now living in the Detroit area.
Peaks won notoriety in 1998 when a man sued her and her employer, the Diamond Dolls nightclub in Clearwater, Florida, saying he suffered a whiplash injury when she swung her breasts into his face at a bachelor party. He said they were "like two cement blocks."
The parties accepted binding arbitration on "The People's Court" television show and the judge, former New York City Mayor Ed Koch, ordered a female bailiff to examine Peaks in private.
The bailiff found the breasts to be "soft" and to weigh about 2 pounds (0.9 kg) each. Koch ruled they were not dangerous and refused to award damages.
The implant auction ends on Saturday. So far Peaks has received 10 bids, topping out at $71, according to the eBay Web site.

Bill Clinton owns that honor, dearie, thanks to Paula Jones.
Too bad they don't come with the original packaging.
won't it get lonely without it's lifelong partner?
its up to $16,500
So is the guy that's leaning back in the chair the one that got injured (and is this is normal way of sitting now)? LOL!!
$16,750 from some casino.
I HAVE ZERO RESPECT FOR ANY WOMAN WHO PUTS THESE THINGS UNDER THEIR SKIN.
And I have questions about women who keep their old ones in their closet :lol:. Blech - weren't they considered medical waste when they were removed?
hehe... at least she wasn't keeping someone else's in her closet, unlike the winning bidder.
"I've got you......."
Any woman? How about those who've lost a breast to cancer and have an implant put in to look as normal as possible?
