Tila Tequila Bares Bruises After Alleged Attack By Boyfriend Shawn Merriman

Tila Tequila looked solemn — baring an arm full of bruises — as paps snapped the reality TV diva departing a hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Thursday.

The 27-year-old reality TV star issued a citizen’s arrest Sunday against her boyfriend, San Diego Chargers defender Shawne Merriman, accusing him of two felonies: battery and false imprisonment. The beauty was hospitalized after the alleged attack, while the 270-pound linebacker was in custody briefly, as the 93-pound Tequila claimed he choked and restrained her.

Merriman has countered, saying he was trying to prevent the A Shot At Love star from driving while intoxicated.

Merriman Monday will likely hear some catcalls as he takes the field in one of the NFL’s most hostile environments, The Oakland-Alameda Coliseum, when his Chargers kick off their season against the Raiders on ESPN’s Monday Night Football.
