    Just seen this on twitter, via Adam Schefters tweets:

    A spokeswoman for the for the San Diego County Sheriff's Department said Merriman is accused of choking and restraining television reality show hostess and model Tila Nguyen. Nguyen also known as Tila Tequila and previously hosted a reality show.

    Officers received a call early Sunday morning from a woman who said she had been choked and restrained when she tried to leave.
    Nguyen, who also goes by Tila Tequila, signed a citizen's arrest complaint accusing Merriman of battery and false imprisonment. Merriman, 25, was arrested at the scene. Nguyen was taken to a local hospital.

    Here- this is what he was thinking:

    "I'm a millionaire NFL star- no one can touch me- I can do whatever I want with this piece of a$$, and she ain't got nothing to say about it either"


    I hope he loses the entire season (and some freedom) for this- not because he's a bolt, but because he's an arsehole.

    Yeah, he should smoke pot and relax
    The only reason a beer sweats around Canada is because he's decided it will be the next beer he drinks.

    Not because he is a bolt, but seriously has anyone ever had any respect for this roid raging idiot.

    BTW to reinforce my point, I do have respect for Nate Kaeding and Darren Sproles. LOL Just no respect for Merriwoman, or Phillip Cry Me a Rivers.

    San Diego Chargers' Shawne Merriman says he didn't harm MTV's Tequila - ESPN

    AFC West blog


    ESPN.com's Bill Williamson writes about all things AFC West in his division blog.Blog network: NFL Nation

    SAN DIEGO -- San Diego Chargers star outside linebacker Shawne Merriman said he didn't harm a reality TV star who has accused him of choking and restraining her.

    In a statement late Sunday, Merriman said he was worried for the safety of Tila Tequila because she appeared to be intoxicated and he didn't want her to drive.
    Merriman also said paramedics who were called to his home in Poway, north of San Diego, reported no injuries to Tequila, best known for "A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila," which ran for two seasons on MTV.

    Merriman's attorney, Todd Macaluso, disputed Tequila's story and said he's confident Merriman won't be charged by the District Attorney's Office.

    "There was absolutely no wrongdoing on the part of Mr. Merriman," Macaluso told The Associated Press by phone. "He essentially was doing what was appropriate under the circumstances in trying to protect the safety of Miss Tequila. There were numerous eyewitnesses that will support his version of the events that transpired at his home."

    Tequila was reported to be Merriman's girlfriend, but Merriman told ESPN's Colleen Dominguez in a text message that Tequila is only a female acquaintance.

    San Diego County Sheriff's Lt. Gary Steadman says Merriman was arrested early Sunday when the 27-year-old Tequila signed a citizen's arrest warrant charging him with battery and false imprisonment. Both are felonies.
    Sheriff's Department spokesman Jan Caldwell said at a news conference Sunday that deputies determined Tequila had been drinking.

    "She was able to talk," Caldwell said. "She was able to walk. She was mobile. She did not have any serious injuries that our deputies saw."

    Asked if Merriman was trying to keep Tequila from driving drunk, Macaluso said: "We don't want to comment on her conduct. The bottom line is, he did everything in his power to ensure her safety. He hopes she comes forth and tells the truth."

    Merriman practiced with the San Diego Chargers on Monday, then said he's convinced he'll be cleared.
    "I think when it all surfaces, it will be a different situation. Period," Merriman said.

    Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
