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."

Hey Tila, where are all your high roller friends you claim love you so much? ie. Diddy, Russell Simmons, Will.I.Am?? They aren't giving you much support are they? Why? Because they know that you are a pathetic liar and you will be a pariah in LaLa Land now..good luck in finding a new 'boo' Maybe Chris Beat Down Brown is available? He DOES leave bruises! You are so desperate for attention and now you are trying to manipulate your way in to being the new face of abused women? LMAO Sorry gremlin..you will forever be known as a LIAR..I hope your imaginary twitter friends give you a reason to live since that seems to be the only thing you do as you sit alone tweeting day and night.

LOL, now Tila has a new Twitter profile pic of Shawne Merriam pouring champagne over a girl's head in 2007 and her "friends" are now man-bashing.

She has the nerve to say "is this the kind of man kids look up to". I wonder if she thinks all those trash videos she puts up on YouTube is something kids will look up to?

If you notice the picture it is really two picutres in one. The girl is the same one on the left and the right side of the pic. Looks like they are at a nightclub or something.

This chick is really trying to turn the negative publicity around about her and put everything on Shawnee.

@Jessica

As a female you should be ashamed of yourself for siding with a pathological liar who made false allegations out of JEALOUSY..save your sympathy for REAL victims of abuse..any victim of abuse would not have a photo of their 'abuser' on their twitter page, change her stories several times, would not lie about being a drunk skank, and would not be begging for hook-ups on twitter within days of being 'abused' and the police and paramedics back up the fact she was not abused and had no sign of being abused..you sound like you have as little self esteem as Tila has and YOUR bitterness towards men does not make a man an abuser just because you hate them or have had bad experiences (duh) Females like you and Tila give all women a bad rap..grow up and educate yourself..ignorance is rather unattractive

I have a friend who was prosecuted for Domestic Violence in San Diego when he was falsely accused by a woman...she had no marks on her and her story kept changing...turns out she was leading a double life and was engaged to 2 different men....The Prosecutor/DA named Whiteman told his lawyer that " I dont believe her story either but this will be a fun one to try".....Merriman is not being prosecuted because of who he is...The San Diego DA is a total JOKE!! Oh yeah, my friend was found NOT GUILTY after the DA wasted taxpayers money to try this case.....

#101 its sad that you are falling into this trick's crap, I am a woman and it saddened me that she would lie about abuse because so many women do go through this and its real but this trick ho is using it to get her 15 mins. back. I live in San Diego and I know the area of Poway, no one under any type of influence should drive the roads! The police here are very good in what they do and if she was truly abused that football player would be in jail! But this trick Tila had no mark's what so ever, and there were many witness who saw nothing go down except her being a a drunken ho....end of story

When will they learn?    

She is definitely making it hard for REAL Domestic Violence victims. You shouldn't treat something such has this as a joke. Hopefully Shawne Merriman sues her for libel, slander and everything else he can sue this B for. She is definitely making decent women look bad. Get a clue Tila and grow up. You are getting too old for this type of childish behavior.

Its amusing that Tila thinks she is going to benefit by trashing Merriman when the reality is she is making a complete fool of herself and gives new meaning to an alien scorned...her pride will not allow her to admit that she had to share Merriman if she wanted to play and nooooooooo one treats Princess Tila like that! So making false allegations is her immature, evil way of revenge..what can one expect of a tramp who has pimped herself out for years? Her liitle army of supporters are probably 12 years old or bitter lesbians who hate men and she is likely paying 99% of them to tweet her support. Good thing Shawne doesn't have a bunny, it would be on the stove boiling right now if Tila had her way..I WILL NOT BE IGNORED!!!!!!!!!! Scary psycho skank!

Newsflash! I'm sure Tila's grandma is quite disgusted with her repulsive grandaughter! THE WITCH LIED ABOUT HER GRANDMOTHER'S DEATH TO SEEK SYMPATHY THE DAY AFTER SHE LEFT SAN DIEGO!! HER GRANDMOTHER IS ALIVE AND WELL AND PROBABLY CHANGING HER F******* WILL RIGHT ABOUT NOW TO DISINHERIT HER PATHOLOGICAL LYING GRANDAUGHTER! SHAME ON YOU TILA FOR BEING SUCH A LOWLIFE. YOUR FAMILY SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOU!
