Tila Tequila is Suing Shawne Merriman

New, comments

from ProFootballTalk.com

As expected, the woman whom Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman allegedly battered and falsely imprisoned has filed suit as a result of an incident occurring in early September.

Per TMZ.com, Tila Tequila Nguyen claims that Merriman has a bad temper and a drug problem, that he grabbed her, "shook her like a rag doll," choked her, and threw her down.  She also claims that Merriman "humiliated" her because of the fact that she's bisexual.

I'm not taking this seriously. Considering the police decided not to press charges, I think Tila's legal team is going to have a hard time getting a verdict in their favor.

However, I doubt that's the point. This seems like a PR move (good for her, bad for him). It's just another way for Tila to keep her name in the papers.
