Who even knew these 2 were dating?!

What a strange couple. . .

Anyhoo, San Diego Chargers' Shawne Merriman was arrested for choking & holding his girlfriend, reality TV star Tila Tequila, against her will at his San Diego home!

Tequila signed a citizen's arrest warrant charging Merriman with 2 felonies; battery and false imprisonment & was taken to a nearby hospital to get treated although she suffered no injuries.

The conflict now is both have 2 completely different accounts of what happened that night. Tila says she was absolutely one hundred percent sober when the attack occurred & when she filed the report. Merriman claims Tila was drunk out of her mind & was trying to keep her safe in his house because he was worried something would've happened to her since she was so intoxicated. However,Tila claims that she doesn't drink which is ironic since her stage name is Tila Tequila!

Merriman spent about 2 1/2 hours in the downtown jail before posting bail.

Merriman practiced Monday, then said he's convinced he'll be cleared. It will ultimately be up to the District Attorney's office to decide if he'll be charged. Merriman said the following, "I think when it all surfaces, it will be a different situation. Period. At the time, I was concerned about her welfare given the intoxicated state she appeared to be in and I encouraged her to stay until safe transportation could be provided. We would all do our best to help a friend if we considered their actions to be detrimental to their personal safety.

Is beating up on your girl the new trend? Because if it is, it needs to stop!!
