Shawne Merriman Arrested For Assaulting Tila Tequila

Posted: Monday – September 7, 2009

San Diego Charger Shawne Merriman has been accused of choking and physically restraining reality TV star Tila Tequila during a dispute this morning (September 6).

Tila Tequila, born Tila Nguyun, called 911 around 3:45 this morning, to report an incident of domestic violence against Merriman.

Nguyun was taken to a local hospital, where she was treated and released.

Merriman was arrested for battery and false imprisonment and was given a bail of $58,000.

Tila Tequila is represented noted attorney Scott Leemon Esq., who has worked with a number of rappers, including Busta Rhymes, Jim Jones and Tony Yayo.

“Due to the serious nature of this matter, and out of respect for all domestic violence victims and defendants, Ms. Nguyen and her representatives will not be publically addressing the facts and circumstances of this incident,” Leemon told “The police and the district attorney’s office have a job to do and we do not want to interfere in any way that with that important function.”

Shawne Merriman and his relationship with Tila Tequila was the subject of gossip last month, when Hip-Hop model Gloria Velez discussed her relationship with Merriman on Angela Yee’s Lip Service radio show.

Velez, who dated Merriman for four years, attacked Tila Tequila, calling her a “4’11 midget” and a “MySpace hoe.”

The two women have also have also engaged in a war of words via Twitter.

Just today, Velez had unflattering words for both Tila Tequila and Merriman.

“Looks like Shawn Merriman had a roid attack, he probably thought Tila was a Alien trying to get him and blacked out (lol),” Velez tweeted today (September 6).

In addition to being one of the most popular Internet models, Tila Tequila was the subject of her own reality show, A Shot of Love with Tila Tequila, which lasted two seasons.

At press time, Merriman could not be reached for comment.
