When are NFL players going to learn to take their frustrations out on the field. I'm not assuming guilt here, of course. And we do have a bit of glass houses scenario here is Pittsburgh - but my god guys, hit each other not girls ... it's not that hard to tell them apart.

Wow, that's a quick verdict. I think we should be a little more cautious with blindly convicting someone... especially with our own "falsely accused" situation this season already.

I think it's fair to point out that Tila placed him under citizens arrest and that there were no physical signs of injury to her according to the hospital that checked her out. I think I'm gonna save my judgment for when the DA makes a decision on whether or not to charge Merriman.

Yup.

Merriman says he was simply trying to keep her from driving away under the influence of alcohol.

She was drunk, didn't like not having the power to do as she wanted (she is a celeb, therefore she can do as she wants when she wants), and therefore flipped out and placed Merriman under citizen's arrest and then accused him of choking her and false imprisonment.

I will take the wait and see approach. If it turns out he did choke her and wouldn't let her leave sober....throw his ass in jail.

If he never choked her (or hit her), but wouldn't let her drive herself home drunk...then good for him, he possibly saved not only her life but very possibly the life of someone else.

Chargers | Merriman says he didn't hurt Nguyen

Mon, 07 Sep 2009 00:44:49 -0700

Jay Glazer, of FOXSports.com, reports San Diego Chargers LB Shawne Merriman said he did not assault Tila "Tequila" Nguyen, and that he was trying to prevent her from leaving his home in an intoxicated state. Merriman said, "On September 6, 2009 the San Diego Sheriff's Department responded to a citizen's complaint that was initiated by Tila Nguyen (aka Tila Tequila). I was taken into custody based upon that complaint. At the time, I was concerned about her welfare given the intoxicated state she appeared to be in and I encouraged her to stay until safe transportation could be provided." Merriman added, "I in no way caused any harm to Ms. Nguyen, however, paramedics were called and she was examined but no injuries were reported. She was released and has since returned to Los Angeles, California. There have been no charges filed against me." Merriman is planning to cooperate fully with police.

Not directed at you: The DRUNK chic with NO signs of injury says the huge guy that hits people for a living choked her. None of you find that mildly strange? If Merriman chokes you, you'll have marks. I'm guessing he wouldn't let her leave, she got pissed, called the cops and made up some bullshit. Nothing will happen to Merriman because he did the right thing by not letting her drive.

Report: Jealousy led to incident at Merriman's house

Posted by Mike Florio on September 9, 2009 10:00 PM ET

Finally, facts are emerging regarding the incident that resulted in allegations that Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman battered and falsely imprisoned Tila Tequila Nguyen.

And we kind of wish they hadn't.

According to Juliette Vara of 10News.com in San Diego, Nguyen wasn't happy that Merriman was paying too much attention to other women at his home.

Per the report, Merriman went to his bedroom with two women. Nguyen then entered the room, and Merriman asked her to join them. She reacted angrily, threatening to have sex with a member of Merriman's entourage.

Instead, she took off all her clothes and tried to leave the house. Merriman then prevented her from leaving.
(what a gentleman! :chuckle:)

Citing unnamed sources, Vara also reports that Nguyen "faked" a neck injury, and that paramedics who arrived at the scene determined that she was fine.

It appears that this report is based on information from one or more of the other persons who were at Merriman's house on the evening in question. And given that one or more of the other persons who were at Merriman's house on the evening in question likely were drinking alcohol too, we're not sure how reliable anyone's recollection as to the events really is.

And that actually helps Merriman. Our guess is that the facts of this case will be littered with inconsistencies and discrepancies, making it a prime situation for a finding of reasonable doubt.

Not to mention, you can't BE allergic to alcohol. It's scientifically impossible -- too small of a molecule to trigger an allergic response. Plenty of people are allergic to other things commonly found IN the booze, but no one is allergic to alcohol itself. And those allergies don't make you more drunk either, just red in the face. It's a lame excuse for people trying to cover up the fact that they can't hold their liquor.

In the very, VERY rare cases where people have a medical reaction to alcohol itself, less than one shot will kill you.
