San Diego County Sheriff's Lt. Gary Steadman says 27-year-old Tila Tequila signed a citizen's arrest warrant early Sunday, charging Merriman with battery and false imprisonment.
Tequila was taken to a hospital. Her condition was not immediately available.
Merriman, 25, was taken into custody by deputies who responded to a distress call at his home in Poway, north of San Diego.
Tequila, whose real name is Tila Nguyen, is best known for her MTV dating reality show, ``A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila.''

Oddsmakers from online sports book Sports Interaction currently list the Chargers at 10/1 to win Super Bowl XLIV and 6/1 to win the AFC Conference.
