Update: Shawne Merrimam & Tila Tequila Incident

According to CNN, deputies didn’t see any physical injuries on Nguyen [Tila's last name], but she asked to be transported to a local hospital, sheriff’s spokeswoman Jan Caldwell said. Nguyen’s condition was not immediately known.

Merriman’s attorney, Todd Macaluso, told reporters that Nguyen was “extremely intoxicated and inebriated” and that the player tried to make arrangements for her to leave the house.

“At no time did Mr. Merriman assault her. At no time did Mr. Merriman keep her against her will,” Macaluso said. “His intentions were nothing but good. … We’re very confident that this matter will be resolved without any charges being filed whatsoever.”

Meanwhile, Tila tweeted that there's no way she could be drunk considering that she's been allergic to alcohol for years.

Looks like this is about to get a lot uglier.


  1. okay... I know that quite a few Asians are allergic to alcohol (my BFF's nickname is 'two sips' for a reason) but how you gonna call yourself Tila Tequila and be allergic to alcohol?


  2. Heyyyyy, ur right! Now that I think of it, my Vietnamese bestfriend is allergic too! Hmmmm
