Illinois Police Investigating Tila Tequila 'Attack'

Illinois police are investigating allegations TILA TEQUILA was attacked while performing at a music festival in the state, after the reality star accused revellers of pelting her with beer bottles and fire crackers.
The star, real name Tila Nguyen, recently released pictures of her bruised and bloodied face, claiming the injuries were the result of a prolonged attack when she was rapping at the Gathering of the Juggalos event, which began on Thursday (12Aug10).
The 28 year old, who is reportedly planning to file suit against event organisers, told TMZ.com she fled the stage only to be followed by several revellers who were "trying to kill" her.
Hardin County police were called to calm the situation, and Sheriff Tom Seiner admits "things got out of hand" during the festival.
Seiner tells the website deputies were not on scene at the time of the star's reported incident because they were already responding to reports of a stabbing.
TMZ.com has obtained a video of the incident, in which Tequila is seemingly being protected by four security guards as members of the crowd hurl liquid-filled bottles and other missiles at her during the set.
A spokesperson for the event had not returned requests for comment as WENN went to press.
