San Diego Chargers all world linebacker, Shawne Merriman, is denying charges that he in any way harmed reality star Tila Tequila. Hhis story states that he was trying to prevent an intoxicated Tequila from leaving his home until safe transportation could b arranged for her. Tequila took to Twitter on Sunday evening and stated that accusation of her being drunk were crazy because everyone knows she is allergic to alcohol, but other statements go against that statement.
These Tweets from Tila’s account state that she was drunk heading into the Chargers pre-season finale over the weekend. On top of that the pair attended a party on Saturday night where it has been reported that Merriman drank only bottled water while Tequila did enjoy alcoholic beverages including shots of tequila and vodka straight from he bottle. This is now going to come down to a he said she said situation and if it turns out Merriman was keeping a drunk off the roads I say good for him, but if he did choke Tila I think the NFL needs to look at the abuse of women that goes on with NFL players.
