Former Chargers and Bills linebacker Shawne Merriman was rushed to a hospital from a Hollywood club last night, with what authorities would only describe as a “medical emergency.”
Reports are now suggesting that Merriman may have done a little to much partying.
According to the L.A. Times, Merriman was rushed from “The Colony,” to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center around 9:30 p.m., according to law enforcement sources familiar with the incident.
Andrew Blankstein, a columnist with the L.A. Times, is reporting from his sources that Merriman may have overdosed on a combination of drugs and alcohol.
