Police responded to the home of San Diego Chargers star Shawne Merriman after Tequila dialled 911.

She claimed the sports star had attacked her after the pair spent the evening at a local nightclub.

The internet pin-up, real name Tila Nguyen, signed a complaint against her beau at the scene and was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Merriman was taken into custody and accused of battery and false imprisonment.

He insisted he simply tried to stop an intoxicated Tequila from travelling home alone.

District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis announced on Friday (11Sep09) there was insufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Merriman committed a crime.

A statement from Dumanis reads, "This case is now closed."
