He was mad because she gave him every STD and some that haven't even been discovered yet. This dude's a joke. I'm so glad Parcells recognized his character concerns before the draft and took Ware. DeMarcus adopted a baby and Shawne beats up 90 lb Asian women when he's not injecting needles in his ass.

Chocking Tila Tequila should be rewarded and not punished.

Ware is better in coverage, while Merriman is a better pass rusher. That is true. However, what's often overlooked is that Merriman is a beast against the run as well.

Some more info

SAN DIEGO ---- Chargers outside linebacker Shawne Merriman was arrested on Sunday and has been accused of choking and physically restraining girlfriend and MTV reality television star Tila Tequila as she tried to leave his Poway home.

Tequila, whose real name is Tila Nguyen, signed a citizen's arrest report and has charged Merriman with battery and false imprisonment. Both charges are felonies.

San Diego County Sheriff's deputies responded to a 911 call made by Tequila at 3:45 a.m. Sunday, claiming that Merriman had thrown her to the ground, choked her and kept her from leaving the residence.

Merriman was taken into custody, transported to the Poway Sheriff's Station for questioning, taken to jail at 8:31 a.m. and released at 11:09 a.m.

Tequila, 27, was taken by ambulance to Pomerado Hospital at her own request.

"Deputies did not observe any injuries to her, but she wanted to go and that is her right," Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Jan Caldwell said.

According to Pomerado spokesman Andy Hong, Tequila was treated and released at 7:36 a.m. in good condition.

Caldwell said that alcohol was involved in the incident, and that Tequila admitted to being intoxicated
. She could not speak to Merriman's level of intoxication early Sunday morning.

"During the evening, Ms. Tequila was extremely intoxicated, inebriated and Mr. Merriman did everything he could to assist her in arranging for transportation to leave his home," Todd Macaluso, Merriman's attorney, told reporters. "At no time did Mr. Merriman assault her; at no time did Mr. Merriman keep her against her will. His intentions were nothing but good."

Tequila's attorney, Scott Leemon, said in a statement that neither Tequila nor her representatives would comment publicly about the incident.

Caldwell said there were other people at Merriman's house at the time of the alleged incident, and some had already been interviewed by detectives as of Sunday afternoon. The investigation is ongoing, and Caldwell said the district attorney's office would decide whether to pursue the case and file formal charges.

"It's up to the district attorney as to whether these charges will stick, or if other charges apply, or if any apply," Caldwell said.

Tequila was an Internet celebrity on MySpace.com and starred in her own MTV reality show, "A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila." The bisexual dating show, which ran for two seasons, featured men and women competing for Tequila's affection.

Tequila was in San Diego to attend Friday's preseason contest against San Francisco and went to Stingaree, a nightclub in downtown San Diego, with Merriman and others on Saturday night.

Stingaree released a statement Sunday saying, "Stingaree can confirm that Shawne Merriman and Tila 'Tequila' Nguyen arrived at Stingaree on Saturday evening together and joined a birthday celebration with friends already going on in the Penthouse. Merriman and Tequila stayed until closing in the early hours of Sunday morning. They seemed in good spirits throughout the evening and were enjoying themselves. There was no outward indication of any problem between the two of them."

Both Merriman, 25, and Tequila regularly update their Twitter profiles, but neither had posted anything regarding the alleged incident as of late Sunday afternoon.

While Merriman received a four-game suspension after testing positive for steroids in 2006, this is his first run-in with the law.

"It's disappointing to hear about the issue regarding Shawne Merriman," Chargers General Manager A.J. Smith said in a statement. "We'll continue to monitor the situation and let the legal process run its course."

Precedent suggests the team won't take punitive action until the legal process is complete. If nothing else, the incident is a distraction leading up to the Chargers' regular-season opener at Oakland on Sept. 14.

It will be Merriman's first regular season contest in more than a year. The three-time Pro Bowler had season-ending knee surgery after the 2008 opener and has gone through extensive rehab in an attempt to return to form.

Statement from Merriman

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/10031914/Exclusive:-Merriman-says-he-didn't-hurt-'Tequila'


According to Merriman: "On September 6, 2009 the San Diego Sheriff's Department responded to a citizen's complaint that was initiated by Tila Nguyen (aka Tila Tequila). I was taken into custody based upon that complaint. At the time, I was concerned about her welfare given the intoxicated state she appeared to be in and I encouraged her to stay until safe transportation could be provided.

"We would all do our best to help a friend if we considered their actions to be detrimental to their personal safety. I in no way caused any harm to Ms. Nguyen, however, paramedics were called and she was examined but no injuries were reported. She was released and has since returned to Los Angeles, California. "There have been no charges filed against me. I want to thank the San Diego Sheriff's Department for their professionalism. I will continue to cooperate fully with the Department, and I look forward to clearing my name regarding these false allegations. I want to put this behind me so I can continue to focus on a successful season for the San Diego Chargers."



So maybe I'm biased but it really is starting to look like Tila is just a total nutjob. The fact that there were tons of witnesses and no marks on her helps.

Oh, I just re-read the OP. It looks like Shawne was messing around with that freakazoid. This is a domestic non-story IMO. If there are no signs of physical bruising, I know this is chauvinist to say, but that trick is attempting to screw with Merriman's livelihood because he pissed her off.

But I did lose a few points of respect for Merriman for bringing that skank back to his crib to kick it!!

Ewwh!
Not everyone is a liar who accuses NFL players of $#!+. EDIT: Yeah but Merriman's side of the story actually makes alot more sense.

Sounds like she wanted to leave while wasted and then drunkenly called 9-1-1 and said something was going on that wasn't. If that's true or not, we don't know for sure. Should be interesting.

I can't believe Tila ratted Shawne out to 5-0 then jetted back the next morning to L.A.

That is low down and evil, IMO.

Next time I bet Merriman let's that skank drive her ass back to wherever. If she wraps herself around a telephone pole, oh well.....

EDIT: Just heard that Tila twittered or released through her lawyer it's impossible that she was intoxicated on the night in question because despite her name, Tila claims she's allergic to alcohol!!!

Didn't she used to regularly get bombed on her reality TV show??

There were people at his crib who saw everything that went down, paramedics reported alcohol was involved in the incident, so where is she coming from with this??

And since I know its going to pop up since i said it, no, im not bashing Ware. I think he's a monster. I just prefer Merriman. Just one man's opinion. I think Merriman has been slept on this past season or so.

Its like just bc the guy was out for the season, we all forgot about how dominant he truly was. The guy is a beast and will show it this year. Just watch.
Now that I think about it, do those two even play the same positions? Merriman is usually the SOLB in the 3-4, while Ware is the WOLB. It's Shaun Phillips who usually lines up on the WOLB side.

Ware was almost exclusively a WILLbacker under Parcells, but Wade does a good job of moving him around. Ware lines up at both positions and RE in 4 man nickel fronts for Wade.

Im pretty sure they do the same thing with Merriman no?

EDIT: Ware lines up at RE in 4 man lines, not LE.

Im pretty sure they do the same thing with Merriman no?
Wade shifted Merriman around a lot but Cottrell basically left him on the strong side, not to mention didn't blitz him very often. 2009 will be his first year under Rivera and there have been a few articles detailing some exotic blitz packages.

I didnt like what Rivera did last year when he took over. He had too many 4-3 alignments.

But then again, he didn't have Merriman. I guess we'll have to wait and see what he does. Im skeptical bc he's not a 3-4 guy, but at the same time, the talent is good enough to work regardless.

Cotrell was terrible.

My biggest dreams would be if Merriman gets traded/released and picked up the Cowboys for a Ware/Merriman duo. Sadly that'll never happen :(

That is low down and evil, IMO.

Next time I bet Merriman let's that skank drive her ass back to wherever. If she wraps herself around a telephone pole, oh well.....

EDIT: Just heard that Tila twittered or released through her lawyer it's impossible that she was intoxicated on the night in question because despite her name, Tila claims she's allergic to alcohol!!!

Didn't she used to regularly get bombed on her reality TV show??

There were people at his crib who saw everything that went down, paramedics reported alcohol was involved in the incident, so where is she coming from with this??
Aren't we all allergic to it? Isn't that what makes us ****** up?

And to the poster who said Merriman wasn't very good in coverage, I beg to differ. He may not be as good as Ware, but he's quite solid. It's just that he a monster in pass rushing. I remember when Cottrell would have Merriman out in coverage a lot in 2007, there was a game where he held Tony Gonzales in check. That was until he went to the sidelines for a breather, and Tony Gonzales scored a TD when that happened.
