Charlie Sheen spends Christmas day in jail on suspicion of felony assault against his wife
December 25, 2009
(ChattahBox) – Charlie Sheen is spending his Christmas Day behind bars after being arrested on charges of domestic assault against his wife Brooke Mueller. Mueller called 911 claiming Sheen pushed her during an argument on Christmas morning. Charlie was arrested on suspicion of Second Degree Assault, Menacing and Criminal Mischief and at this time is still in jail. Apparently under Colorado law, a hearing must be held and a protection order must be made between those accused of domestic violence and their victims before the arrestee can be released from custody. So far no court date has been set.
There are some reported circumstance to this incident that make it sound a lot worse then some kind of one-off argument that got out of hand. The couple who married last year, apparently got into the heated argument at a house Brooke has reportedly been renting in Aspen, Colorado for three months, while Charlie has been living in Los Angeles. Charlie had reportedly flown to Aspen to spend Christmas with his wife and nine-month-old twin sons, but things apparently flared up immediately. A source close to Brooke, a real estate investor, told Radar Online that the couple, and have, been having ‘significant marital problems,’ but I would say the 3 month separation testifies to that. All things said and done, it looks like Charlie might be back in divorce court soon.
