See? It’s stories like this that make me happy that I have never been a Charlie Sheen fan. Sheen, who has had a sordid and troubled history, and who just had twins in March with his new wife, Brooke Mueller, spent Christmas behind bars due to a domestic altercation. Apparently Brooke called the police in the early morning and according to her blood alcohol levels, she was already drunk. Charlie was taken away in handcuffs and of course his side of the story is that he was defending himself. His reps are also saying something about how not everything is always what it seems. That actually sounds like a bunch of bologna to me and I think the fact that the police at the time deemed him worthy to be thrown in jail shows that there was wrongdoing of some sort on Charlie’s part. It does make me thankful once again that I’m not Charlie Sheen’s PR person. This is what we know so far about the story from Bump Shack,
“Actor Charlie Sheen, Denise Richard’s ex-husband, was arrested for an alleged domestic violence incident involving his wife, Brooke Mueller, in Aspen, Collorado, on Christmas day (December 25). Brooke, who later registered a 0.13 in blood alcohol tests, called 911 at 9:34 am.
When the cops arrived they arrested Charlie for felony second degree assault, felony menacing and criminal mischief, a misdemeanor, which is all related to a “domestic violence component”. Charlie’s rep said, “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 apparently told the authorities Brooke was the aggressor and that he was just trying to defend himself the best her could. Charlie was presented to a judge and has been released from the Pitkin County Jail on $8,500 bond. He will return to court on February 8, 2010.”
So I guess the whole thing is going to be blown over until the new year. And it seems that nothing will probably happen at that time either. I think this because Brooke, who was angry enough to press charges at the time and be okay with seeing her babies’ daddy taken away in cuffs, has now changed her story, a la Elin Nordegren, and is now refusing to talk to the authorities. This comes from TMZ,
“Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Charlie Sheen’s wife, Brooke Mueller, has told cops she’s done talking with them about the incident yesterday that landed Charlie in jail.
Sources say police contacted Mueller for a follow-up interview but she doesn’t want to cooperate any further. As we first reported, Brooke has changed the story she told when she called 911.
TMZ has spoken with the man who will decide if Charlie Sheen will be prosecuted. Arnold Mordkin, a Chief Deputy D.A. who runs the Aspen office, tells TMZ he has not seen the police reports yet, but, “Generally speaking, our office files charges when police make an arrest.”
Mordkin says his plan is to file charges on February 8, 2010 — Sheen’s next court appearance.
Mordkin also says, although he has not received firsthand information about Mueller’s follow-up contact with police, “It is not uncommon where a victim in the throes of an event says some things and thereafter the story seems to change.”
Mordkin did, however, warn, “I often file [criminal charges] against someone who falsely accuses someone.”
It sounds like this one’s going to get ugly either way. Even if Mueller doesn’t push the issue, it sounds like the D.A. is prepared to at this point. I just don’t understand why Charlie Sheen is such a schmuck and always feels the need to screw up his own life somehow. And it seems that he’s found yet another wife that’s just as messed up as he is and can’t seem to get her head screwed on just right.
