Tila Tequila Photos -- Armed with Evidence?

9/12/2009 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained these photos of Tila Tequila taken the day after her alleged run-in with Shawne Merriman -- and it's obvious by the bruises, Tila had a rough night.

Tila Tequila

Tila claims she was "choked and physically restrained" by Merriman after she tried to leave his residence. Merriman says he was trying to keep a drunk Tequila from getting on the road.

The San Diego D.A. announced yesterday it would not prosecute Merriman due to insufficient evidence.

Tattoos on women are as sexy and exotic as the fat chick from the Facts of Life. Just a place for Merriman to aim at at love and at war.

"insufficient evidence" DAMN what do they need ?
Laying hands on a women is NEVER ... NEVER A THING TO DO .... there is no reason to have done that.
Even if she is drunk on drugs, going mad ..... WHAT EVER YOU WANT .... NEVER DO YOU DO THAT.
And he said he did that to help ??? PLEASE I think you can restrain a person without using force .... or maybe there is something else then JUST 'she was drunk and i didn't want her to drive' ???

Hi Tila! I bet the 2 positive comments about you out of 322 are written by you? I am glad you are reading TMZ and posting these comments on your twitter page! I must correct you though Tila, when you say some people need alot of help, you seem to be oblivious to the fact that YOU are the one who needs soooooooo much help! How sad that you are hiding at home alone twittering your imaginary TilaArmy and reading all the negative press you are getting. Is your big head getting any smaller? It was only a matter of time before your ego imploded and your lies caught up with you. No matter what you say the world knows you are a liar and a worldwide joke..people do not respect LIARS who make false allegations about innocent people, and lie about their grandmother dying, lie about being pregnant..oh so many lies Tila! Where are all your A-List friends now? Not one person has spoken out and defended you because they know you LIE and they are distancing themselves from a trashy skank like you. A bitter, jealous little troll like you needs some serious therapy..oh how the mighty have fallen Tila! You were never anything more than a manipulative, lying witch and you have embarrassed and insulted every woman that has TRULY been the victim of abuse. Shame on you, you ugly bobble-headed b!tch!!

We need to put pressure on our courts to take this issue in a different light then they seem to now. This is a cycle that happens every day, and it needs to stop! Our courts, and our jurors need to treat this for the crime that it is, and stop treating the victim as a second-class citizen. The news media also need to do the same.
It all has to stop, otherwise peaple will end up DEAD! How many of you can live with that? Not me!!

I don't believe that's stage make-up and I don't believe she did that to herself. So, given that, who did it??? Unless she has leukemia and doesn't know it, the force used to create those kind of bruises is much more than someone holding someone back from getting into a car and driving while drunk. I understand based on her past behavior why people would doubt her story, nevertheless, she obviously was manhandled to the point where it left bruises. I really don't know what to think about it. He's three times her size. Even if he were the same weight as her, males have an advantage in strength. Football is so violent...guys crashing into each other with all their strength. I don't believe in blaming the victim, but at the same time you can't act outrageous and lie just for the sake of attention, which Tila has done in the past, then when something serious happens to you, you expect everyone to stand behind you without questioning your motives. At the end of the day, your character is all you have. I hope the truth, whatever it is, comes out.

Brianna from Australia    

Hey Stevie (comment 95)"If he was in Australia he would be kicked off the team quick smart"......ummm....ever heard of Wayne Carey, one of our greatest AFL football stars ever? He's still regarded as a role model and was even inducted into the North Melbourne Hall of Fame this year! He's even been offered a development role with the Kangaroos! And all this after he was charged with battery of his girlfriend in Miami last year by glassing her in the face and when police arrived he assaulted them too and was then charged with 2 counts of battery and 1 count of resisting arrest against them as well. However, after a plea deal was struck which saw him plead guilty to the cops assault charges, his only punishment was to send a written apology to the police, do 50 hours community service in Australia, undergo alcohol and anger management counselling, be placed on two years probation, and give a donation of US$500.00 to a local charity for Miami police officers in need. Thats not to mention the fact that he has been charged previously in Australia several times for assault!!!

People who are pathological liars that make up false claims against an innocent person ARE second class citizens and should be treated as such. The only 'injury' was to Tila's enormous ego when she found out she was not going to be the only girl at play with Merriman..Tila has a princess complex and her bitter anger turned into seeking revenge against an innocent guy. Violence is not a joke and there is nothing I disrespect more than someone who lies about it. I can live quite happily with Tila being outed as the lying, conniving, psychotic s!ut that she is!

It's really hard to take this girl seriously when she's constantly posting tweets every five minutes trying to defend herself or convince her pathetic followers of how she has been victimized.

Am I saying that she's lying? Not necessarily. We don't really know if she is or not. It's just very hard to ever take anything she says (which is way too much) seriously.

Awwwww Tila you sad little twit..your lame attempts to psyche out Merriman and the Chargers before their game is not working..they have better things to do than think about a Z-lister hooker like you. You seem to be in the midst of a meltdown tweeting about 'they think I'm not watching' and claiming Merriman and 'his people' are making up fake accounts to get on trending topics. Uh no Tila, those are just real people who hate you and apparently there are alot of them. You are not worthy of thought by the athletes you are so obsessed with and that is driving you even crazier isn't it? Don't you feel rather foolish babbling about athletes have no right to abuse animals? You are desperate to be the face on something, anything that will get you attention and it is PATHETIC. I guess you have even more time to spend on twitter now that you are a social outcast and no one is inviting you to any parties. Sad, vapid little troll LMAO

Instead of handling this like a grown woman and letting your lawyer and the proper authorities handle the situation, you are using your TWITTER account. No Domestic Violence victim would handle this situation as you are. You are a disgrace to all decent women and REAL domestic violence victims. Hopefully you realize that all of the comments you make on your TWITTER account can be used against you in a Civil suit that I wish Shawne Merriman would pursue against you. But unlike you this man is moving on with his life. Grow up and act your age.

I totally think domestic violence against men/women both is a disgrace, but this liar needs to meet up with a real WOMAN and get the smackdown applied; then she can cry abuse, as this is about as real as Joan Rivers' face. Photoshop can do some amazing things, and this beyatch piece of trash spends more time on Twitter than I do in the **itter, and believe me, I spend alot of time in there...lol!
