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."

Lights OUT, Tila! ..but don't let crazy get in the way of you wasting more time trying to pursue this non-event in civil court. Who knows? You might get a new reality show about how you can gain (sexual) favor with all 12 jurors!

'Im allergic to alcohol' ahhhhh but you are not allergic to cocaine..since you are such a truthful person Tila, why are you not revealing how much cocaine you did that night? Do you not feel any shame in making false accusations because your PRIDE was choked? You could not stand the fact that the guy wanted other women and you decided to seek revenge..you are a childish,egotistical disgrace and you really should deal with your anger in more mature ways..you need help sicko!

When will they learn?    

I wouldn't do that if I were you TEQUILA. You may end up paying Mr. Merriman Civil damages in pursuit of your Civil lawsuit. Pick and choose your battles wisely because you may lose this one as well. Walk away and let this man live his life. While your at it, check yourself into a mental health facility because you seriously need help.

If Tila Tequila were to have to take a weekly beating just to keep her name somewhat relevant, than it would be quiet worth the stitches.
What else would she have going on for herself.

And here is some advice for some of you athletes..Trust me I should know.

It is quite okay to f#ck a skank from time to time, especially on away games.

However it is never cool to make one your official girl.
And deadly to marry one.

Her last name is not Tequila, it is Nguyen.
Been there done that.
However a man, especially us with bank. should ask yourselves some serous questions about any woman that would even entertain the idea of changing her last name to an alcoholic beverage.....ARTOFWAR

Well, this is another fine mess a high profile guy has gotten himself into messing around with skanky, scandalous women - mostly stripper-ho's and such.

What is it guys? Why do you love these hooker-ho's and pass up great-looking regular girls for friends, girlfriends and love interests.

There are thousands, maybe millions of gorgeous young women who are not train wrecks you can date - but nope, you guys jusk keep picking psycho-chicks to whore-monger with.

You get what you get Shawne.....pick a decent (unknown) girl next time.

I really hope she pursues a civil case. She really needs to get slapped down (and she will) for making a false accusation and treating a serious matter like domestic violence as her personal PR stunt. It cheapens all the victims of abuse, especially the ones who are still silently living through it. I hope everyone ‘unfollows’ and lets this cheap excuse of a human being fade into whatever menial existance she can drum up.

She might have had a shot at a few bucks outta Merriman had she not posted a bunch of ill-advised tweets…too bad honey, they already out there and are admissable in court.

Karma’s a bitch Tila

Is Tila writing that ridiculous spiel her lawyer released?? 'victim of a violent crime'....REALLY?? Discovering that you are not the ONLY girl a man wants is a violent crime in your demented mind Tila? You have the nerve to say you were 'battered'???? STOP THE LIES YOU PATHOLOGICAL NUTCASE!! You are disgusting and you have some nerve insulting women who truly have been battered and abused..you are making a mockery of abuse by LYING. No one believes you and its sad that you are a z-lister and can not afford a PR person who would have advised you to shut your mouth! You just can't resist making a fool of yourself and Merriman looks pretty good right now because he is not changing his story and he is not mouthing off like you are. Keep yapping Tila, your head games and desperation for drama are going to backfire big time. Ray J is lucky he escaped your craziness somewhat unscathed..you only lied about being pregnant that time! You have lied about attempting suicide, lied about getting married, hell you claim you are a virgin too! You are crazy and need to be committed ASAP!!

Um, Tila - is this "judgment day"? Just so I'm clear...which version of your pathetic story are we on? Oh, the one where attorney's don't follow the law because of some sort of bribery or corruption? *giggle*

I gotta wonder if this backfired a little bit for her. I don't think she was expecting the amount of publicity around this and, now, the inevitable public snap back.

I know the DA won't press charges for making false official statements and is going to let this die...but I kinda wish they would.

For the love of all that is holy people, stop following this train wreck of a human being
