DENVER — Charlie Sheen was arrested on Christmas Day in Aspen, Colo. on domestic violence allegations. The 44-year-old actor spent most of the holiday in a jail cell in the elite ski resort town.
Officers responded to a 911 call from a home in Aspen Friday morning. An ambulance also responded to the call, though Sheen’s accuser was not taken to the hospital for treatment of any injuries.
At the Pitkin County Jail, Sheen was booked for second-degree assault, menacing and criminal mischief, according to Aspen police spokeswoman Stephanie Dasaro. The identity of Sheen’s accuser and alleged victim was not named by the Aspen police department.
Sheen was released on $8,500 bail on Friday afternoon. Aspen lawyer Richard Cummins is representing the actor. According to the AP, both Cummins and Sheen’s publicist Stan Rosenfield have cautioned the public not to jump to conclusions.
A court date is set for February 8, according to Cummins.
Sheen is the son of actor Martin Sheen and brother of director Emilio Estevez. He stars in the CBS sitcom "Two and a Half Men." This is not his first brush with the law. In 1996 he was charged with attacking his then girlfriend and arrested. He violated his parole with a cocaine overdose that sent him to the hospital and later to rehab.
