NFL: She Said, He Said
Posted September 7, 2009on:
San Diego Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman was accused of chocking tv reality star Tila Nguyen, better known as Tila Tequilla, and was arrested Sunday morning. When asking Nguyen about the incident she responded by saying “she had been choked and physically restrained by Merriman when she attempted to leave his residence.” Nguyen signed a citizens arrest at the scene and Shawne Merriman was taken into custody on suspicions of battery. When Shawne Merriman was asked about the incident he responded by saying the accusations made by Ms. Nguyen are completely false, and he simply was trying to stop her from driving home intoxicated. Meriimans lawyer when asked about the subject stated that that Nguyen was “extremely intoxicated and inebriated and that the Merriman tried to make arrangements for her to leave the house.” Shawne Merriman, is a three time pro bowler who tallied an impressive 10 sacks last year for the Chargers has already faced steroids allegations within the last year. Lets hope that for Merrimans sake the allegations are wrong because if he is found guilty he could possibly have seen his last days as a linebacker in the NFL.
