Tila Tequila Shows Off Her Battle Wounds

By: Betsy Waldman / September 11, 2009

Last weekend, Tila Tequila accused San Diego Chargers football player Shawne Merriman of battery and false imprisonment after she tried to leave his San Diego home.

Merriman responded to Tila’s accusations, insisting that he was trying to prevent the severely intoxicated star from driving home drunk.

Yesterday, the reality star stopped for the cameras to show off her bruises as she left a Beverly Hills hotel yesterday on her way to meet with investigators.

Ouch! Check out those bruises!

What do you think, readers? Who’s side are you on?
