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.

OMG! What a common classless person. I refrain from giving her the title of lady, because she certainly isn't one. Shame on her.

I've seen the Tila Tequila show and she acts like anything but a
lady. But lets not glamorize what this guy allegedly did. She didn't
deserve to be choked. The police would arrest her for being drunk.
There is too much violence against women and children. Stop the
violence against men women children and animals.

I agree --no one should be beating up anybody. It's disgusting. Hopefully the courts will iron out whatever happened. When I saw Rihanna's face after the beating, I could not conceive of any justification for that. This situation seems more BS to me.

She just died from her injuries! Its all over cable news!

So sad and what a tragic waste of incredible talent. Godspeed, Tila. You will be missed tremendously by everyone who ever heard of you.

American pop culture cannot handle losing too many more of our irreplacable icons. Mikey, Marilyn and Tila Tequila...

That's what Tila gets for trash talking everyone that does something she doesn't like.
Karma is a bitch.

What if she was a prostitute? Would that justify a choking? Some women and young girls are forced into prostitution. Its wrong to choke a hooker or the old lady next door.

TMZ hits a new low    

Why can't these thugs just go home, have sex and go to sleep? Why is there always a fight after midnight? Why do things have to become physical? Why are these these horrible men dating these ridiculous women? For god's sake, have your fun, go home (drunk driving much, Shawn?) and sleep. What the F goes on after the clubs? Chris Brown, I am looking at you too. Freaking thugs. Hey, Merriman. You punk. Get out of my town. A-hole. I didn't see your PR people on Twitter today talking about the choking. I saw them talking about how you were "having fun" and "everything was OK at Stingaree" and how you were "getting lap dances from your girlfriend Tila." And yet, no mention of the choking. Your douchey attorney said you were "restraining" her from driving home from your place drunk. Jail is a good place for you.
