A date has been set for Shawne Merriman to appear in court following his arrest for battery and false imprisonment.

Paul Levikow, spokesperson for the San Diego District Attorney's Office tells, "Shawne Merriman was given a return date to appear in court, and that is Tuesday. If no decision has been made by our office to file the case or not, Merriman will have to appear in court as he was arrested for felonies. If the decision is made not to file the case, obviously he won't be required to appear."
