DA Reviewing Merriman/Tequila Incident

9/9/2009 6:00 PM PDT
We're one step closer to finding out if Shawne Merriman will face charges over the alleged Tila Tequila choking incident -- the District Attorney's Office is now reviewing the case.

Today the DA's office was given all of the information gathered by the San Diego County Sheriff's Department -- which include Tila's citizen's arrest warrant from this weekend accusing Merriman of two felonies: battery and false imprisonment.

The DA can either file charges, reject them, or refer Tila's accusations to the San Diego City Attorney's office for consideration as misdemeanors.
