    Tila Tequila, the reality TV star who accused Shawne Merriman of domestic violence last weekend, said via her Twitter feed that she will meet with the San Diego County district attorney's office on Friday.

    Apparently, that is news to the district attorney. Paul Levikow, communications director for the San Diego County DA's office, told ESPN on Thursday afternoon that there is no meeting scheduled with Tequila.

    The Web site TMZ.com reported that the meeting was actually taking place Thursday afternoon. Levikow denied that.

    Earlier Thursday, some of the tweets were deleted from Tequila's page, including one saying she would meet with the district attorney.

    Merriman, the San Diego Chargers' Pro Bowl linebacker, was arrested early Sunday after Tequila accused him of choking and throwing her to the ground while she was trying to leave his suburban San Diego home. Tequila signed a citizen's arrest warrant accusing Merriman of battery and false imprisonment. Both are felonies. Tequila was hospitalized briefly and filed a citizen's complaint against Merriman. No charges have been filed.

    Merriman contends he was protecting Tequila, who he says was drinking and intended to drive home. "At the time, I was concerned about her welfare given the intoxicated state she appeared to be in and I encouraged her to stay until safe transportation could be provided," he said in a statement.

    Merriman also said in a statement that he wants to clear "his name" and "put this behind me so I can continue to focus on a successful season for the San Diego Chargers."

    Tequila, whose real name is Tila Nguyen, has denied Merriman's claims that she was drunk at the time of the incident.

    Wednesday, the San Diego County Sheriff's Department turned over its reports to the DA's office. The DA will review them to decide if charges should be filed.

    Levikow said the DA's office can reject the accusations, or can refer them to the San Diego City Attorney's Office for consideration as misdemeanors.

    The tweet from Tequila's account that said she would meet with the district attorney, which is verified by Twitter but is not guaranteed to have been written by her, was part of a string of tweets Thursday morning. She started by writing: "I will never be a VICTIM of anything. So when someone lays a hand on me then lies. Its on." She followed that up with more than 30 updates in the next hour, including accusing Merriman of lying in his statements to the media about her.

    "Damage control. Blame Tila. Make her look bad. Send it out to the media so they don't [sic] believe her! Quick! Cover it up!" she wrote, according to the Twitter feed.

    Tequila's attorney, Alan Gutman, said earlier this week that Merriman is making personal attacks against her to spin coverage from his "illegal and indefensible actions."

    "It is never justifiable to brutally assault, choke, strike and imprison a woman," Gutman said in a statement Tuesday night. "Once the truth is fully revealed, Mr. Merriman's fantastic story of how he was trying to keep Ms. Tequila safe will be completely discredited. No one, especially a woman, should ever have to endure what Mr. Merriman did to Tila Tequila."

    I sweat this biatch must be on the hoodie's payroll or something.

    She has handled this like a complete moron. She's after not just fame, but most likely money. Nobody that was seriously assaulted and held prisoner by a 6 foot 4 monster would make a mockery of the crime by tweeting like a complete looney bird.

    At what point can Merriman began to sue her for defamation?

    Once the DA decides that there is no evidence or not enough to try him with then the fun can begin. If he wants to he can then turn around and sue her for false arrest, Libel,Defamation of character, and whatever his mouth piece can come up with in civil court. But I doubt that will happen either as he probably just wants to put this all behind him.:tup:
