Steroid agression at play in Shawne Merriman incident?
Steroids are known to cause aggression. We saw it with our own eyes with Taylor. There is even a name for it that everyone knows as “Roid Rage.”

A number of violent events have been attributed to steroids including the death of wrestler Chris Benoit and his family. This time, it is alleged that steroids may have played a role in the violence that Shawne Merriman showed towards his girlfriend Tequila.


MTV star Tila Tequila said steroids may have been part of the problem late Saturday night when San Diego Chargers outside linebacker Shawne Merriman(notes) allegedly assaulted her, according to ProFootballTalk.

Tequila tweeted a whole slew of posts about the incident and has since removed some of them but one of them read “Steroid Abuse Can Cause Aggression” and linked to a story about Merriman’s 2007 four-game suspension due to a violation of the league’s performance-enhancing substance policy.

Merriman is building a story that he was saving Tequila from herself by not letting her drive home drunk, and Tequila hasn’t bothered to say her side of exactly what happened. She says that will change today, what she’s calling “judgment day.”

So be sure you haven’t heard the last of this PR War. It’ll likely to drag on for a while.
