Tila Tequila citizen arrests abusive boyfriend

September 8th, 2009 // 50 Comments

Tila Tequila placed her boyfriend Shawne Merriman under citizen’s arrest early Sunday morning after he allegedly choked her and refused to let her leave his apartment, according to People:

Early Sunday morning, deputies were called to Merriman’s residence in Poway, Calif., a town bordering the city of San Diego, where the reality star, whose real name is Tila Nguyen, claimed she was choked and restrained, according to a press release.
“[Nguyen] made a citizen’s arrest,” Sheriff’s Lt. Gary Steadman tells PEOPLE.
Merriman was charged with battery and false imprisonment, according to the release. Steadman says the results of an investigation will be given to the district attorney’s office, which will decide whether to charge the football star.

In a statement to FOX News, Shawne claims he was merely trying to prevent Tila from driving drunk which she says is impossible because she’s allergic to alcohol. Except apparently for that night. Gawker reports:

Taking on Merriman’s claims that she was drunk at the time of the incident, Tequila tweeted:
“I am allergic to alcohol. It has been publicly known for years. That is how I got the name Tila ‘Tequila’ cuz the irony. I can’t drink.”
As happens in the high-speed age of technology, it wasn’t long until that story was called into question, what with the owner of the nightclub where it went down described Tequila as “visibly intoxicated.”

Considering Shawne Merriman is a large individual and Tila Tequila sleeps in a box of matches, did the police find tweezers on the scene? Because, honestly, I don’t how he could’ve done this. It’d be like trying to choke a LEGO figure. Except this one shoots green clovers and red balloons out of its face until you hand over the keys.

    @1: Ohh happy day!

  3. If irrelevancy was a felony, she’d be on death row by now.

  4. fs

    what a dumb and ugly useless slit

  5. Parker

    She’s not even worth buttfucking.

    This is just Tila hustling for publicity, to get herself back into the gossip news..

    If a 300 lb pro football player chocked a 98 lb party girl/hooker, there should have been some marks. And the police released Merriman with no charges filed.

    Read her bio in Wikipedia. Tila got the name “Tequila” at age 13 when she got unusually drunk (not the first time) in front of her friends.

    She may be allergic to alcohol, but that doesn’t stop her from getting drunk every night.

    I believe Merriman when he said he was trying to keep Tila from driving drunk. No doubt there was an argument. But Tila should have allowed Merriman to call a taxi for her.

    I wonder what a drunk praying mantis looks like?

  12. ROUGH daddy

    Instead of tea, this girl ingest human secretion for fun at random. who would admit to call her a “girlfriend”

  13. hudd

    I’m allergic to alcohol also. If I drink too much of it I have a reaction and have trouble talking, walking, standing upright and sometimes I throw up!

  14. Jerkbags McGhee

    Hahaha never miss a Leprechaun reference do you SF =D

  15. Photoshop Police

    just because you’re allergic to alcohol doesn’t mean you’re not drinking.

    i knew a guy who was part asian and he was ‘allergic’ to alcohol. it’s basically a way to say that he can’t handle it. certain ethnic groups (sorry to generalize) have difficulty metabolizing alcohol… which basically means, they stay drunk longer or lose control faster.

  16. Oliver Chester The Molester Lester

    Shawne Merriman is already in a heap of troubles with steriods hanging over his head. Maybe he had roid rage?

  17. JRS2

    He should have squeezed harder.. much, much harder.

  18. cc

    This is a tragedy. Shawne Merriman failed to strangle Tila? Would have been the best thing he ever did in the service of mankind. Maybe the police let him go so he could try again.

    I’m sorry, but when I hear the words “citizen’s arrest,” I can only think of Gomer:

    Two things about this shit really piss me off:

    1.) Dude needs an award for doing what almost everyone else in the world would love to do…slap the shit out of that annoying bitch. And don’t get all preachy on me – the abuse she put the world through is much worse then domestic abuse

    2.) I hate how all that has to happen for the guy to go to jail is one drunk, dumb, skank to call 911…does it matter she is hammered? NO. Does it matter that she could be making the whole thing up? NO. The dude goes to jail…his life is potentially ruined…but one tiny f*cking midget is safe

  21. Nameless

    For Tila lying about being allergic to alcohol when she’s been seen drinking before and trying to drunk drive only to have the person stopping her arrested. I think Shawn Merrimen should be allowed to cunt punt her.

    Chargers still suck.

  22. Josh

    These neurotic woman eat up this type of drama. She chose the douchebag boyfriend, and she probably tried her best to piss him off. Her and Rihanna friggin deserves a knuckle sandwich. I’ll laugh when their new boyfriend tosses their corpse into a garbage bag.

  23. Delgo

    I wonder if he did his patented celebratory dance after clotheslining her.

    Merriman is a douche.

    I f#$% Tila hard.

  25. Holli

    Becausing letting Rhianna and Chris Brown have all the abusive spotlight isnt enough! Its just like what Micheal Jackson did to Farrah Fawcett…Take that spotlight bull by the horns Tila!

  27. Sarah

    imdb.com says “Her “Tequila” nickname originates from a near fatal drinking experience. Ironically, Tila is allergic to alcohol.”
    so, yeah. she’s full of it.

    Randal has added Tila Tequila to the not-important-enough-to-even-have-a-posting-on-The-FISH list.

    I’ll bet her scronch smells like fermented kimchee….for that matter, I’ll bet Merriman’s crank smells like it too.

  31. blah

    Eh she’s old news but she’s Vietnamese not Korean – and guess what kimchee is already fermented!

  32. richard prickier

    Someone named tequila is allergic to alcohol? LOL Being allergic to alcohol mean sthat you can get rashes or turn red. It doesn’t mean you can’t consume it. I used to get rashes when I first started drinking. They went away after I got drunk a few times.

  33. Rhialto

    He’s about 3 times her size.If this story is true i wonder what happened what made him do this.

  34. Darth

    If it’s true,he must have been really angry and outta his mind.

  35. Galtacticus

    Maybe something didn’t happen what he supposed to happen?!

  36. Gando

    He got outta his mind because she didn’t make him a cup of warm milk before going to sleep?!

  37. Crocoduck

    Better luck next time, Shawne Merriman.

  38. Don

    Nice ass.

    Does anyone know how I can get a full view of that photo of Pam Anderson cupping those ginormous boobs?

  39. yowillie

    Great ass.

  40. Kkb

    I thought this gook cunt was a lesbian.

  41. Paradisa

    So, Fish, from the way you wrote “LEGO”, I have to assume that you are a LEGO geek. Cool.

  42. Vaudey

    Merriman just stopped her from getting back to the mothership, but Sam Cassell got away. Nanu Nanu

  43. Sarah

    Isn’t he blacks? These women never learn.

  44. She is really hot and sexy.Such a beauty need a handsome guy to match. Fotunately ,she has found their Mr Right on Militaryflirting.c o m—-a really nice and promising American Veteran.

  45. sophie

    thank you atom ;)

  46. Sienna

    She’s better then Heidi Montag or Paris Hilton at least…and yes she can somewhat sing and rap and has some measure of intelligence, while the other clue have no hope. Still…she’s not terribly talented. She of course looks gorgeous.

  47. IKE

    Can someone explain to Shawne what “I’d HIT THAT” actually means?

  48. Didn’t she start a lie up on her twitter account (good Lord) earlier this year by saying she’s pregnant with Ray J’s baby and then some lie or insinuation about having an abortion? I don’t know why any man would deal with chicks like these. Well wait, I know why, but in that case it would be easier to just go to a hooker, pay, bounce and leave.

  49. Not to make light of a potential case of domestic abuse, but when I read the headline on CNN this morning that said “Shawne Merriman accused of choking Tila Tequila”, my first thought was, “Well, yeah…you’d have to.” Why was he even dating that drug addict in the first place?

  50. I’m sorry where did she get that name?
