Chargers linebacker/steroid user/creator of a dance about a light switch Shawne Merriman is short one car today; his beautiful Mercedes was stolen.  Fortunately, police were able to find it before Merriman even reported it gone.  Probably because it was in flames on the side of the road.

The 2006 sports coupe, valued at more than $180,000, was engulfed in flames when officers discovered it about midnight Thursday in Emerald Hills off Bethune Court, said San Diego police spokesman Gary Hassen.

The car was sitting on top of plastic milk crates, and all of its wheels were missing, Hassen said.

Gosh, that's terrible.  Of all the jackasses I would want this to happen to, Merriman's not even in the top 5.  There are at least six, maybe even seven or eight pro athletes who deserve this more.
