Takes a little shine off the "Chargers are the new media darlings" trophy, I bet.

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.

Just as in the Ben Case, I will reserve judgment until it is over.
Yep.. Gotta say I agree with you. Wait until it has all come out before you judge.

If she was drunk... then good for him. Very good for him.

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.
