I was gonna ask, "who the hell is tila tequila" til I googled her. And still, I ask "who the hell is tila tequila?! And why would Merriman, a guy who could have all kinds of 'tang, waste his time with some fake a$s floozy like that? I just don't get some people.

She is some pornstar/reality show persona. I heard it on the local news about 10 minutes ago. I googled it and found out that they were twittering each other, and Merriman's girlfriend and Tila have some kind of disagreement.

I just never broke a story before and I found this kind of funny!

Here's Florio's writeup per PFT...


Shawne Merriman busted for battery, false imprisonment
Posted by Mike Florio on September 6, 2009 1:22 PM ET

The days prior to the 2008 regular-season opener were dominated by discussion regarding whether Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman would be able to play due to a torn PCL.

This year, the question is whether Merriman will be able to play after allegedly assaulting a D-level television celebrity named Tila Tequila.

Merriman allegedly "choked and physically restrained" Tequila as she tried to leave his San Diego residence.

He was taken into custody at 3:45 a.m. local time and charged with battery and false imprisonment. Tequila was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

The timing for Merriman is horrendous. He has been talking routinely regarding a plan to have a huge season in 2009, in the hopes of silencing critics who say that his play dropped dramatically after his suspension for steroids. As he enters his contract year, Merriman could be facing discipline from the team and/or the league for the arrest.

That said, because he's a first offender, there's a chance that neither the league nor the team will act until the legal process plays itself out.

Stay tuned for more as developments emerge.

:wft

apparently Merriman has been trying to stay in the LA Hollywood scene and this is the best he could get...

there have also been a few "rumors" about Merrimans sexuality.. so dating a bi sexual d list celeb really clears the air.

I remember Bungles fans pointing at SD when they were always in the police radar.. I think SD has just as many arrest as the Bungles..

Of all the skanks to wreck a career on, this one ranks at the bottom. If you ever watch her show, she has zero upstairs (and in my opinion, not much going on downstairs either).

According to a news source in SD, Merriman's lawyer says he didn't do what he is accused of and also goes on to say that Merriman was attempting to prevent her from driving while intoxicated.

I guess all I'm trying to say is if we're going to automatically assume the worst about other players then we shouldn't be so shocked, surprised or angry when folks do it about our players.

Until all the details come out, imo, this is a he said/she said situation.

I have read similar stories.. but this is like Tony Romo with Jessica Simpson..
these types of girls only survive if they stay in the news and it doesn't have to be good news either..

it's like Eddie Murphy when he was trying to give an innocent trannie a ride home.. LOL
even if you were trying to do the right thing you are dealing with a different level of morality..

seriously.. when was the last time you heard Tila Tequila's name? How convenient to hear her horror story right before the NFL season.. I wouldn't be surprised if her agent planned the whole thing

The man who was caught playing under the influence (of steroids) was trying to prevent someone from driving under the influence (of alcohol). Hmmm....

If a guy like Merriman was trying to choke a little thing like that, it seems she'd have some signs of trauma (marks or something). I hate to be the guy that assumes the worst about these girls, but I'm just skeptical. She has shown her self to be about life for one thing and that is her own self-promotion.

I've seen a few more things come out that lead me to believe the self-promoting crazy beyatch is doing just that...self-promoting a crazy beyatch!

1) Apparently Merriman lost a very close friend in a drunk driving accident and takes this very seriously.

2) She apparently had no marks on her.

3) The police only arrested him because the self-promoting crazy beyatch made a citizens arrest...and the police had no choice but to comply.
