Shawne Merriman Decided to Leave in the Middle of an Interview on ESPN's "Highly Questionable" (Video)

Late last month, former NFL star Shawne Merriman agreed to do an interview with Bomani Jones and Dan LeBatard for their ESPN show Highly Questionable. He agreed to do it because he wanted to promote an annual coat drive that his charity The Lights On Foundation is currently holding.

So without explanation, he took out his earpiece, thanked Jones and LeBatard for their time, and then got up and walked away…in the middle of the interview. That interview aired this week on the show.

Jones and LeBatard both looked stunned when Merriman left—seriously, the clip above is worth watching solely to see the looks on their faces—and LeBatard later said that Merriman's reaction was "really confusing to us." Merriman had this to say about the incident:
