Charlie Sheen sure had a hell of a week last week. On Christmas Day he was arrested on domestic violence charges against his wife Brooke Mueller, with whom he was “arguing bitterly” before he shoved her. A 911 call was placed at around 8:30 AM. The pair were in Aspen, Colorado and Charlie is automatically barred from having contact with his wife due to the nature of the incident.
When cops arrived, they arrested the 44-year-old Two and A Half Men star for felony second degree assault, felony menacing and criminal mischief, a misdemeanor. Cops say all three charges are “coupled with a domestic violence component.”
Sheen’s publicist, Stan Rosenfield, issued a statement saying, “Do not be mislead by appearance. Appearance and reality can be as different as night and day. It would benefit everyone not to jump to any conclusion.”
Charlie has since been released on bail and issued a statement of his own, saying that he and Brooke are trying to work things out and will not be seeking a divorce. The couple have 9-month-old twin boys.
Sheen already has a previous not-so-friendly divorce from actress Denise Richards, with whom he has two daughters.
