The Wall Street star was arrested by Police on Friday morning after an emergency call from a house in the ski resort of Aspen, Colorado. An ambulance went to the house, but no-one was taken to hospital.
The star was suspected of assault, menacing and criminal mischief. He was released on $8,500 (£5,300) bail Friday night and was released from jail at 7 p.m. He is due in court on Feb. 8, 2010 at 10:30 a.m.
Judge James Boyd asked Charlie Sheen to stop any kind of contact with his wife until the case will be solved.
Rumor say that for now Charlie and his wife, Brooke Mueller, are planning to undergo marital counseling courses to try to get over this difficult time in their lives.
“They were fighting at a dinner in a friend’s house and it continued until the next morning,” rumor say. “Both of them were drinking and neither was supposed to be. They both have histories of alcohol abuse and have made every effort to stop. But things got out of hand.”
It is not the actor’s first brush with the law. He was arrested in 1996 for assaulting a woman, who claimed she had been knocked unconscious at his home. He was also the only star named as a client of “Hollywood Madam” Heidi Fleiss, testifying at her trial that he had paid her $50,000 for escorts.
Mr. Sheen ended up in hospital in 1998 following a drug overdose and checked into rehab on his release. Subsequently arrested for drinking and drug driving, he went back to rehab on doctor’s orders.
Mr. Sheen is the son of actor Martin Sheen and brother of actor-director Emilio Estevez. Charlie Sheen married in May 2008 to Brooke Mueller Sheen, a property investor who gave birth to the couple’s first children, twin boys, in March. Moreover, the star has proven one of US TV’s most popular sitcoms and made Charlie Sheen America’s highest paid TV star in 2008.
