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 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.

Those seem to support his side of the story more than hers. I dunno.. I'm usually not one to doubt someone who claims they've been abused, but there is definitely something off about her story.

better to hurt/restrain a drunk, before they get behind the wheel and kill anyone else, like an innocent family with children or someone's beloved. while i do not condone the abuse of women, using force to stop anyone from getting into a car while drunk is a-okay with me!

if she was too impaired to drive, then she had it coming. obviously she was insistant on driving or he would not have had to be so rough.

she has a couple of bruises on her arms and a bunch of hickies on her neck WHO CARES!!!!! that's what you get when you give lap dances all night and drink alcohol that you are allergic to, maybe that's her allergic reaction. Come on Shawne you know you can't turn a ho into a housewife.

first of all, dave...the chargers are not going anywhere, it's all just a scare tactic...and cindy, the marks do not need to be more serious, the evidence does. we have a great DA here in San Diego as far as domestic violence cases go. that's why her office investigates and will always pick up charges even if the victim does not want to prosecute.

oprah    

My only question is why didn't she show those bruises before? I think she purportedly had someone do that to her so she can blame Shawn....she is a total faker ugly bitch!

i totally agree with #5 yes you can clearly see large finger prints! this is the reason why so many woman have to go into hideing because of these men. he needs to be put in a good psych faucilty to get him help.

i dont care for tela to much but i have had those exact hand prints on my arms from an ex. no big a$$ man should do something like that to a tiney woman like that.

with a name like Tila Tequila makes you wonder if he wasn't telling the truth, however, just taking the keys would have been easier?

The DA of San Diego is a WOMAN!!!! Her people saw right through this tart.

Oh and by the way, once upon a time there was a drunken chic who was trying to leave a party wasted and was restrained by her friends and a very large Samoan man. After she went nuts on everyone they just said "F U" and let her have her keys. She ended up crashing into a wall with her car, fortunately for her no one got hurt and the next morning she was covered in bruises left by her friends who were just trying to help her from getting in that car. TRUE STORY and it happens to alot of people.

Tila tell the truth already, it will set you free.

I Agree How Does Someone Deserve TO Get Hit?
Put Ur Self In Her Position She Don't Want This To Happen To Any1 Else.
Come On I'm Her Fan But I Would Say The Same For A Normal Person As Well.. What If he Would Have Killed Her Thank God That Didn't Happen Stop Denying The TRUTH Because Its Obviouse That He Did It Just Like Chris Brown Did To Rehinna... Just Like Puerto Ricans Say u Can't Cover The Sun With One Finger. I'm An 17 Year Old Girl And I Think That This Is Rong And I've Read Comments From People Who Are Way Older And Should Understand And All They Doing Is Putting Her Down, Forget Ya'll Its Called COMONSENCE!!!!!!!
