Reality show hostess Tila Tequila filed a civil lawsuit this week against San Diego Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman, accusing him of assault, battery, false imprisonment and emotional distress.The lawsuit stems from a Sept. 6 incident at the NFL star’s home in Poway, in which Tequila — whose real name is Tila Nguyen — claims Merriman choked her as she tried to leave.The lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages, was first reported early Tuesday on celebrity Web site TMZ.com. It was not immediately clear whether it was filed in San Diego or Los Angeles, where Nguyen lives. Sheriff’s deputies took the former Pro Bowl linebacker into custody the night of the incident after Nguyen signed a citizen’s arrest warrant accusing him of battery and false imprisonment. He was released hours later. –WGN
