Before being accused of choking reality star Tila Tequila, NFL star Shawne Merriman had some oddly foreshadowing words about his allegedly violent behavior. The football star, who appears in the October issue of Playboy, said, “I’m so dangerous right now, I scare myself,” when asked about his rebuilt body.
Shawn, whose nickname is “Lights Out” for his ability to knock players out, tells the mag, “…on the field, I’m a beast and a killer.” Shawne also shared that he had a rough upbringing “and some of the unfortunate things that happened are why I’m able to do what I do now. I’m built for everything that’s taking place now.” In high school, “parents sent letters complaining that I shouldn’t be on the field with their sons, that I was an animal. It was hilarious. They stopped letting me hit in practice. Whenever we had contact drills, they’d send me over to another field, where I would practice hitting dummies.”
