Tila Tequila -- DA Made a 'Reckless' Decision

9/11/2009 9:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tila Tequila is lashing out at the San Diego DA's office for their decision to not file criminal charges against her ex-boyfriend Shawne Merriman.

TMZ obtained the following statement from Tila's rep:

"Tila Tequila is the victim of a violent crime. The San Diego District attorney's decision not to press charges against Shawne Merriman for the battering of Tila Tequila demonstrates an unconscionable negligence in the discharging of their public duties. We strongly feel that justice has not been served in this matter.

Obviously, The San Diego Charger's NFL franchise brings millions of dollars in revenue to the city of San Diego, and it seems clear that other interests are being served by the DA's office than the upholding of the law. A young woman was violently beaten and choked, and the physical evidence is both overwhelming and disturbing. Tila's account of the events has remained consistent from the beginning, while Merriman's story has changed repeatedly.

Just because the DA has made this reckless decision doesn't mean that justice will not be served in this case. No one is above the law. Tila Tequila will immediately begin pursuing civil charges against Mr. Merriman and she will have her day in court."

LOL! Witch please! The only thing 'disturbing' is Tila's mental state. Please get your facts straight TMZ..Tila was never a girlfriend of SM..she was a jump off and nothing more..that is why she went crazy when she saw him with 2 other women..at least her offered her an invitation to join! I guess her p**** power did not interest SM very much..she should be grateful that when she went crazy and stripped naked and went running out of the house that he did not just toss her flat a** out, lock the door and leave her naked on his doorstep. No one believes this HO and she should be back in Thailand pulling tricks for $10 a pop. She hasn't admitted that she was doing cocaine that night but it will all come out..she is a manipulative LIAR who lied about her grandma dying just to seek sympathy..how LOW is that?? Go away Tila, you are repulsive

This is the same DA that still pursued charges against San Diego Charger, Steve Foley for the crimes he committed the evening he was just by a rogue off duty officer. I highly doubt they'll put their team spirit in the way of the justice system.

Her reps seem to have totally disjointed themselves from the facts, so far, surrounding this case. Unsubstantiated charges, grossly misrepresented characterizations, and fallacious statements of alleged facts. Sarah Palin... is this really you?

I say bring it on beotch...People with "money" have to be so careful who they hang out with. Look what happened to M.J. "Lies run sprints, truths run marathons." COUNTER sue her and make HER and her lawyer pay your legal costs. You have evidence of maliciousness, fraud the DA didn't approve her charges. Save your emails, text, pictures (her drinking), write a diary of memories together, what her friends say...talk to her ex's and most of all brother PRAY, you'll get through this.

The only thing Tila is a victim of is her delusional mind which is so out of control she is doing kinds of crazy things to stay in the public eyes.

The crazy pyscho was just on her twitter trying to hook up dates.

Now she wants to bring civil charges against SM??? This is truly sad. She is going to lose that suit anyway. Somebody needs to put this chick in a mental ward. I mean seriously, she is pathetic.

Hey! She does have bruises on her arms. I don't believe his story about he had to restrain her because she was drunk.
But, none of were there now were we?

"Tila's account of the events has remained consistent from the beginning, while Merriman's story has changed repeatedly."

lolwut. It's actually been the exact opposite. The only one that's been inconsistent during this whole thing is Tila. And anyone that would suggest the DA's office in San Diego is biased doesn't know much about the recent history of REAL incidents with San Diego Charger players that have happened the last 4-5 years.

I honestly hope this ends with Tila getting charged for making false accusations. This isn't right

Whatever, if there was evidence, the police would have seen it...everyone who knows who Tila is (and thats not many, what is she actually famous 4) Know that she is a attention seeker, and a dirty bitch, she is a shame against all woman..
