Reality TV personality Tila Tequila has filed a lawsuit against Shawne Merriman over assault accusations from a September incident in which the Chargers linebacker wasn't charged with a crime.
In September, San Diego District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis dismissed Tequila's accusations that Merriman choked her and threw her to the ground while she was trying to leave his suburban home.
According to TMZ.com, Tequila is seeking damages for assault, battery, false imprisonment and emotional distress.
