Tila Tequila has accused San Diego Chargers' linebacker Shawne Merriman of choking her, according to officials from the San Diego County Sheriff's Department.
Early Sunday morning, deputies were called to Merriman's residence in Poway, Calif., a town bordering the city of San Diego, where the reality star, whose real name is Tila Nguyen, claimed she was choked and restrained, according to a press release.
"[Nguyen] made a citizen's arrest," Sheriff's Lt. Gary Steadman tells PEOPLE.
Merriman was charged with battery and false imprisonment, according to the release. Steadman says the results of an investigation will be given to the district attorney's office, which will decide whether to charge the football star.

Call it a shot of confusion.
Under the heading "Clearing Up All the Rumors," Tila Tequila complains on her MySpace Celebrity blog that even a "very fun-loving, happy, and drama-free type of girl" like her can get rattled by a spate of pregnancy reports.
"I just felt the need to clear up the rumors for all of my fans because I care about you and want you to know the truth!" Tequila, 27, writes on her blog.
Although Tequila, herself, reportedly started the rumors – Extra says she announced she was pregnant, hinting it was by an A-list star, on a late-night Twitter post that was quickly taken down – the Shot of Love star now wants to now respond.
"The point is ... maybe I was pregnant, or maybe I wasn't pregnant," she says. "I think that is something very personal but I'm going to clear that up now and say that I am not currently pregnant."

Tila Tequila's new gal pal Courtenay Semel was cited for battery after allegedly striking a hotel security guard in Las Vegas.
Semel, 28, daughter of former Yahoo! CEO Terry Semel and star of E!'s Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive, was not arrested, but she must pay a fine or face a Las Vegas justice court judge.
Las Vegas Metro Police Officer Jay Rivera tells PEOPLE that Semel "struck a hotel security guard in the back of the head" during an altercation at 4 a.m. Wednesday.
A source says Semel, a former friend of Lindsay Lohan and the 26-year-old Tequila's current girlfriend, was at Caesars Palace's Pure Nightclub that evening and left her cell phone on the property. When she went back to retrieve it, the club was closed.
"She demanded that they find [the phone] and hit the security guard," the source says.
