Less than a week after Tila Tequila accused her boyfriend, San Diego Chargers Shawne Merriman, of choking her, the San Diego District Attorney's office announced they closed the case due to insufficient evidence, but the reality star plans ti pursue civil charges.
"Tila Tequila is the victim of a violent crime," her rep said in a statement obtained by TMZ.com.
"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.”
" Tila Tequila will immediately begin pursuing civil charges against Mr. Merriman and she will have her day in court."
