Tila Tequila may be tiny, but she ain't Tinkerbell. The MTV reality star apparently plans to duke it out with NFL linebacker Shawne Merriman until she gets her way with him -- which in this case seems to be jail, lawsuit or some other admission of guilt.
The MTV reality star's attorney, Alan Gutman. issued a statement to TMZ on Wednesday, saying Merriman's earlier claim that he didn't assault little Miss Tequila is pure spin and will be "completely discredited" in court:
"Shawne Merriman and his advisors have decided that the best defense is a good offense, attacking Tila Tequila in the press with a lot of calculated spin to cover up his illegal and indefensible actions.
Fortunately, we as a society will not tolerate a 6'4", 270 pound all-pro NFL linebacker physically assaulting a young lady who is 4'11" and 93 pounds. It is never justifiable to brutally assault, choke, strike and imprison a woman.
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."
And that's the last you're going to hear about it from us until there's some new evidence or a court date.
