Charlie Sheen spends Christmas in jail following wife's accusations of assault
The Observer ^ | 12/27/09 | Amelia Hill

Posted on 12/29/2009 5:40:17 AM PST by nikos1121

Charlie Sheen, the highest-paid television actor in America, spent Christmas Day behind bars after his wife made an emergency, early-morning phone call to the police complaining that she had been assaulted. The star of America's favourite sitcom, Two and a Half Men, was arrested and charged with the second-degree crimes of assault and menacing, which can carry a 12-month prison sentence. The 44-year-old actor was also charged with criminal mischief. Sheen is thought to have become angry after he and his wife, Brooke Mueller Sheen, also known as Brooke Allen, began drinking on Christmas morning. The row escalated at their rented house in Aspen, Colorado, and, grabbing her around the throat, Sheen is alleged to have violently pushed his wife. An ambulance was also called, but Mueller was not taken to the hospital. According to the celebrity gossip website TMZ.com, police attending the scene gave both Mueller and Sheen blood alcohol tests. Despite telling police Brooke was the aggressor and that he was just trying to defend himself, Sheen was taken to Pitkin County Jail, where he was locked up for eight hours. He was eventually freed on bail, after paying a bond of $8,500 (£5,325) and being advised by a county judge on the conditions of his release. A court date has been set for 8 February 2010. Well-known Colorado attorney Richard Cummins, who is representing Sheen, cautioned against any rush to judgment.

I'm sure this has been posted from other sources.

What's this the third or forth time for this POS? Why is it that I'm not surprised? This pot smoking, cocaine head represents everything I hate about hollywood. He's a two bit actor who is the mouth piece for talented writers. A nobody otherwise. The fact that his wife couldn't see through this facade of his, is probably not surprising either. And let's not forget the idiot's political commentary.

Of course, this guy thinks this is good publicity...like sleeping with a porno actress and being jailed for drug and disorderly charges.

Let's see, Martin Sheen, Alec Baldwin, who am forgetting?

And just think they took the last name Sheen because they admired Archbishop Fulton J Sheen. Not so godly like wouldn’t you say

Jeez, Hollywood, grow the hell up and respect the talent that God gave you.....99% of you make more money in a week than most hard-working people in this nation make in a lifetime. How much intelligence and personal integrity does it take to just behave? And you q-tip brains want to know why we stopped watching television and are all tuning in to Wii............because you guys will never appreciate what God gave you, but you did nothing to earn.

Both of them should have been arrested and charged, In all cases where there is nothing more than he said/she said, Take ALL PARTIES TO JAIL. They both participated, only a JURY can decide truth.

I dislike Charlie Sheen and his antics as much as the next person here, but what kind of person informs their spouse on Christmas Day that they want a divorce as it’s reported his wife did?

I saw an article that said he held a knife to his wife’s throat. Anyone who would do that to their spouse under any circumstances has serious problems. This guy is like OJ—a ticking time bomb.

You see my point then. It seems his wife is no winner either.

I agree, rbg81. Passive aggressive behavior doesn’t warrant physical violence as retribution.

Excuse me.....are you saying the man is an emotional wimp and drawing a knife on your wife is justified? Some example for a conservative law abiding forum. Any man who would threaten like this deserves more than just divorce papers.

Excuse me. I think if she did indeed say that, then I can easily assume that the disharmony, caused most likely by him, had reached serious proportions. Temper it with drinking in the AM. WE have an alcoholic marrying an alcoholic.

I was referring to your ex-spouse, of course. :~) Anyone knows FReepers are the best! (perusing your homepage, I assumed you’re female?)

Agreed. I am baffled why women keep going after these men and marrying them. You would think they would run in the opposite direction from these men. All the Kennedy men, OJ Simpson, the list goes on and on......

Oh ok, I guess I do have a home-page (lol!)........I don’t ever suffer from PMS, but I do come in to work cranky after paying bills the night before, like today, if you read my most recent posts........the antedote is usually a chai latte and a bowl of raw almonds.

Alot of women suffer from the narcisistic belief that these guys were unhappy with their previous love interests, but they can change that, they will be different. Women can have egos out the wazzoo too.........

The phenomenon of celebrity many times attracts those only interested in money or living in someone else’s limelight. The potential pitfalls are either ignored or not important enough to consider.

Many women are also attracted to the “bad boy” without realizing how “Bad” they can actually become.

“I dislike Charlie Sheen and his antics as much as the next person here, but what kind of person informs their spouse on Christmas Day that they want a divorce as it’s reported his wife did?”

-Still, you DON’T grab a knife and hold it to their throat unless you have SERIOUS problems in your head.

“Yer gunna STAY with me and LOVE me, or I’m gonna KILL you!”... I know this happens a lot but it’s WAAAAAAY wrong.

He’s frickin’ Charlie Sheen - big time... well, you know.. movie star. He should have told her to not let the door hit her patootie on the way out.

Glad you clarified that. I was beginning to wonder. Geez...

Ok..so the consensus if if you have a rotten spouse...you leave them. A knife should not replace your your lack of emotional security. If you hate them that much....Just leave.

I’ve heard it said that women marry certain men, thinking they will change.

And men marry certain women, thinking they will never change.

(I am not going to take your chocolate away, whether you have PMS or not, lol)

Not to be a traitor to my gender, but women do alot of things that don’t make sense. Some men patiently understand that.

Honestly, I’m not a chocoholic........cheesecake, however, is another story.
