Charges ag­ain­st Shawne Merriman alleging that he assaulted and choked girlfriend Tila Tequila have been dropped, according to the New York Daily News. “Our office has determined there is insufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that any crime was committed,” a police spokeswoman said in a statement. Tequila was less than thrilled with the decision. “Obviously, The San Diego Chargers’ 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 D.A.’s office than the upholding of the law,” her publicist said in a statement.
