Word is he choked Tila Tequila!
Early Sunday morning, Shawne Merriman was arrested on suspicion of physically assaulting Tila Tequila, a model and television personality. He was taken into San Diego County Jail.
Tequila, whose real name is Tila Nguyen, placed a call at 3:45 a.m., accusing Merriman of choking and physically restraining her. She claims Merriman prevented her from being able to leave his house, and signed a citizens arrest at the scene, charging him with battery and false imprisonment.
Word on the street, he was trying to keep her from driving drunk. Maybe the truth will come out soon.
Tequila, who is known for her party girl ways, was treated and released from the hospital. She made some crazy comments on her twitter page, suggesting that steroid's could have played a role in this attack.
We will find out more once statements are made. Sounds like another Chris Brown and Rihanna story, all too soon!
