A shot in the throat with Tila Tequila…

September 6, 2009

So I recognize that the above title may suggest some type of head-shot related story, but that isn’t too far from the most recent news.  The AP is reporting today that San Diego Charger linebacker Shawne Merriman, who has been dating Tequila for a short time, was arrested this morning for choking her out.  According to the AP report circulating around the news world:

September 6, 2009, 10:23 a.m.

Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman was arrested early Sunday morning for allegedly choking and restraining his girlfriend as she tried to leave his Poway home, the Sheriff’s Department said.

His girlfriend, Tila Tequila, 27, signed a citizen’s arrest warrant, charging Merriman with battery and false imprisonment.

Deputies responded to a disturbance call about 3:45 a.m. at Merriman’s home near the intersection of Sage Crest Drive and Oak Knoll Drive.

Tequila, whose real name is Tila Nguyen, is best known for her reality show, A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila, which ran for two seasons on MTV. The bisexual dating show features straight men and lesbians vying for Tequila’s affections.

Tequila was taken to Pomerado Hospital. No condition was available.

Merriman, 25, was taken into custody by deputies. (SDUT 9/6/09)

We here at Too Old like to keep up with recent events in the lives of both athletes and reality stars.  How fortunate for us that in this instance, those two worlds have conveniently collided (or, not so “conveniently for Tila Tequila, I guess…).  We also rep the Raiders on this blog, so it’s always great to see members of the Chargers in the news for acting like psychos.  Maybe it’s time for our girl Tila to go back to the ladies…(of course we know they’re just as crazy)
