Tila Tequila to Meet with D.A. Over Shawne Merriman Incident

by at . Comments

Reality star Tila Tequila said (via her Twitter page of course) that she will meet with the San Diego County District Attorney's office on Friday.

The D.A. is reviewing reports regarding the assault she alleges was committed against her by Shawne Merriman, her NFL star boyfriend, early Sunday.

Tila Tequila accuses the Chargers linebacker of choking and throwing her to the ground while she was trying to leave his suburban San Diego home.

She signed a citizen's arrest warrant accusing Merriman of battery and false imprisonment, both felonies, and was hospitalized. No charges were filed.

Shawne Merriman says he was protecting Tequila, who he says was drinking and intended to drive home. "I was concerned about her welfare," he said.

Merriman also that he wants to clear "his name" and "put this behind me so I can continue to focus on a successful season for the San Diego Chargers."

A Shot at Tequila

Tila Tequila and Shawne Merriman offer differing accounts.

Tequila, whose real name is Tila Nguyen, has denied Merriman's claims that she was drunk at the time, even claiming she is "allergic to alcohol."

The Tweets from Tequila's account this morning said "I will never be a VICTIM of anything. So when someone lays a hand on me then lies. Its on."

She followed that up with more than 30 updates in the next hour, including accusing Merriman of lying in his statements to the media about her.

"Damage control. Blame Tila. Make her look bad. Send it out to the media so they don't [sic] believe her! Quick! Cover it up!," Tila Tequila Twittered.

A San Diego County spokesman said the DA's office can reject the accusations, or refer them to the San Diego City Attorney's Office for consideration.

Whose side are you on?
