Shawne Merriman, the linebacker for the San Diego Chargers, was arrested early this morning after he allegedly choked and restrained Tila Tequila at his home in Poway, CA. If Shawne wanted a shot at love with Tila, this was not the way to do it.
Fox Sports says that 911 received a call from a woman claiming Shawne had choked her out and wouldn’t let her leave his home on Sagecrest Drive. A police officer said, “Nguyen (That’s Tila Tequila to you and me) told deputies she had been choked and physically restrained by Merriman when she attempted to leave his residence.”
Shawne is currently in police custody and Tila is being treated at a nearby hospital.
Shit just got real. Tila is like the size of my nipple and Shawne looks like a giant, so he could probably choke her with his pinky. Scary shit.
Okay, okay, the fact is Tila is 4’11” and Shawne is 6’4″. And just so we’re clear, my nipple isn’t 4’11” tall. It’s probably like 4′ tall at the most!
UPDATE: Tila is out of the hospital, so says TMZ. Shawne’s lawyer is saying that Tila was drunk like a Wino, so he was trying to keep her from leaving his house and getting into her car.
