SAN DIEGO San Diego Chargers star outside linebacker Shawne Merriman was arrested Sunday and accused of choking and restraining his girlfriend, reality TV star Tila Tequila, as she tried to leave his suburban home.
Tequila, 27, signed a citizen's arrest warrant, charging Merriman with battery and false imprisonment, San Diego County Sheriff's Lt. Gary Steadman said.
Both are felonies.

I suppose there are exceptions but I would rather walk down a dark alley and run into players from the U.S. soccer team than the thugs from this sport.Maybe they require the players to have a bit of class to play soccer.

So glad Parcells drafted Ware instead of this trash head.
Lately I think FR has even a larger and growing share of Richard Craniums.
Bungles are the worst case ... proably had more thugs in one location than the entire league .... but even when you factor in all 32 teams you are looking at a very small percentage
It is the same old story ... the minority is ALWAYS the focus. Hmm think I’ve senthat in practice elsewhere. The BAD BOYZ of theNFL get the lamestream media coverage ... while those tha excel and go about doing ther job are ignored.
Sensationalism sells.... the american people are damn ignorant these days they cant figure out simple things for themselves.
Smith reportedly has been unhappy with Merriman’s extracurricular activities, and there’s been speculation the Chargers will let him leave when he’s eligible to become an unrestricted free agent. Merriman has various business ventures and is enamored with the Los Angeles social scene.”
Sounds like Tila Tequila (ROTFL what a name) ain’t exactly upper crust but Merriman hasn’t done much to burnish his reputation with his off-field antics. Choosing Miss Tequila as his girlfriend and then getting into this little incident at 3:45 AM won’t help much.
Looks like the Chargers see the handwriting on the wall and they want to wash their hands of Merriman as soon as possible. He’s clearly a talent on the football field, but just as clearly lacks the discipline to handle any degree of success.
Its the same thing the media does to the armed forces. Im reading a book called Stolen Valor, that deals with medai distortions on Viet Vets. The media talks about how x % of veterans are homeless or drug users, but doesnt report that the same % or even higher of the general population has the same issues.
“Why anyone in their right mind supports this league by watching is beyond me.”
Because it’s entertaining? A fun thing to wager on? I’ll bet there’s a lower percentage of leftists in the NFL than Hollywood in general...
At any rate, Merriman in particular is likely innocent from what I’ve heard. Ms. Tequila was unable to produce any actual injuries, which seems a bit strange given Merriman’s obvious strength.
The good news is that this will likely result in Merriman finding a more suitable girlfriend. ;-)
[BTW, in addition to enjoying the NFL I’m a big Chargers fan.]
If I recall, there were maybe 20 players arrested last year in a league of 1600 players
What is the % of NFL felons?
I wouldn’t touch her without massive antibiotics, antifungals, and antivirals! Even then I wouldn’t touch her! Where that moron has been let no sane man follow! Yeech!
Let's see... 32 teams with 53 players each on the roster.
If you could post a comprehensive list of the 508 active NFL players with felony convictions I'd love to see that. In the meantime, while you're busy compiling that please try to remember that conservatives aren't interested in imposing their beliefs on others, that's a liberal gig.
I was thinking the same thing. If he got hung up on her, that poor SOB.
was gomer pyle there? “citizen’s arrest! citizen’s arrest!”
I wouldn’t touch her with someone else’s 10 foot pole!
Like that clown is “clean”.
You’re out of your mind if you think over 30% of NFL players are convicted felons.
Used porn whore.
Tila Tequila sex tape.
Search `n c.
WHY would he risk contracting a myriad of STDs from this world class skank and slut?
Hey, I resemble that remark!
On Fox news this morning they said he was NOT arrested because there was no evidence of assault.
