Tila & Shawne Merriman -- Before the Fight

9/6/2009 4:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained photos of Tila Tequila and Shawne Merriman taken just hours before an alleged fight between the two led to his arrest.

Tila Tequila -- launch photos

The photos were taken at Stingaree nightclub in San Diego at around 1:00 AM. They were taken in a roped off area and Tila was seen giving Shawne lap dances all night long.

A spokeswoman for the club said they were there for a friend's birthday and that "they seemed in good spirits throughout the evening and were enjoying themselves. There was no outward indication of any problem between the two of them."

Tila called the cops on Shawne at around 3:45 AM Sunday after he allegedly choked her when she tried to leave his apartment.

Celebrity life. What a mess. They go out and have sex, crack and alcohol and then they go home and beat the crap out of each other , then they call the police and then go to the ER for treatment. Sounds like great fun. Are they all nuts. Which couple is next.

Who the hell is this little slapper? I mean seriously, she is just another young ugly, talentless, desperate, slut who is whoring herself all in the pursuit of fame. Message to the loser Tila...you need to have talent, good looks and intelligence to be successfull in Hollywood. (Un)fortunately, you have none of these attributes so....GET LOST, YOUR NOT INTERESTING!!!

A match made in Hell, she's an ugly troll skank and he's a total douchebag.

Merriman way to waste another season, you're getting suspended by Goodell for this one. Merriman is a chucklehead.

Tequila is really nasty and ugly.

I hate that these whores are considered celebrities. All these drunk disgusting people need to fall off the face of the earth, including that big forehead untalented Rihanna and chris brown and all the other drunkards that can't control themselves.

maybe he got pissed cause she wanted money after all the flirting? I had a girl pull that on me once. I find it despicable when men hurt women, but on the other hand, if women aren't ladylike it's hard to know how to act.

OK........now none of us were there, BUT I was wondering how long it was gonna take for her to get herself in trouble.

*************PLEASE NOTE******** during the week days, if you look to the right of your screen, there is a TMZ TWEETER that scrolls with various celebrities. And this HO is for ever talking much Sh$t
about people on her "tweets", For example, she must have been doing a magazine cover and perhaps one of the models or several were talkin' sh$t about her and vice versa, well it seemed to be getting heated between and I am like dam# who is this bi-atch? She thinks she is the HOT B$TCH in town, OMG! She tweets a lot. She sent a tweet on Friday night telling everybody in the world she would be at "this club" at 615 Broadway in SD.......once she got there, she sent additional tweets, that said there were 4000 people, she even sent one that said "work it, B$tch and look at all the football players." Shawn is stupid cause you are drawing attention to himself and the team............that HO is not worth having to post bail or slap around. Based on how she "tweets", I AM NOT SURPRISED. She acts like her sH_T don't stink and yearns for the ATTENTION! So my bloggers check out the TMZ Tweeter page to the right of the screen whenever you refresh to read one of the TMZ glorious stories........Oh, I even noticed LUDACRIS can be QUITE NASTY when he tweets about females.........hmmmm!things that make u GO WOW!

It's now being reported by eyewitnesses, of which there were several, that Merriman was trying to prevent a VISIBLY DRUNK Tequila from leaving and getting in her car.

Seems there might be more to this story than is being reported.

Let's get the facts.

Regarding the stats on domestic abuse, it's another fact that women choose the domestic partners who are hurting them. If your idea of a great guy is some flashy, drug-using club idiot with chin pubes and tats --maybe with that stupid bald head bouncer thing going on, maybe passing on other guys because they're "boring" wellll.... you need to have better, less superficial taste in men. You don't deserve to be hit for it (who does?), but why be so surprised when that happens?
