Charlie Sheen in another meltdown

Charlie Sheen is back in the headlines after a being reportedly found naked and drunk this week and trashing his room at New York’s Plaza Hotel.

According to reports, Sheen had been on a cocaine bender for days when he couldn’t find his wallet and flew into a rage at an unidentified escort who was with him.

Hotel security called police just after 2 a.m. where they found the hard-partying Sheen after a woman called the front desk, sources told The New York Post.

Tables and chairs had been thrown around the room and a chandelier was also damaged, sources said.

The damage to the luxury suite reportedly totalled about $7,000.

The Two and a Half Men star was accompanied to New York Hospital by his ex-wife Denise Richards, who was staying in a separate room at the Eloise Suite on the 18th floor,

Life & Style magazine reported on its website that the woman was screaming inside a locked closet.

“She was fearing for her life and was naked,” a source told the website. “Charlie was incoherent but started screaming slurs at the cops. They recognized him immediately and gave him two options: they could take him to the hospital or take him down to the station. Charlie chose the hospital.”

Sheen’s publicist would only confirm: “What we are able to determine is that Charlie had an adverse allergic reaction to some medication and was taken to the hospital, where he is expected to be released tomorrow.”

Sheen, who was only a week away from completing his probation, told cops he was drinking and had snorted cocaine before flipping out.

An NYPD spokesman said no complaints were made and there was no arrest. Sheen was not expected to face any criminal charges.

Last year, Sheen had been arrested in Aspen, Colorado following a fight with then-wife Brooke Mueller, in which she called 911 saying that he had tried to kill her with a knife.

Sheen, who has admitted to using cocaine in the past and paying for hookers, cut a deal to avoid jail time by entering a rehab facility for 30 days.

A spokesman for Warner Bros., which makes his sitcom, declined to comment.

The Hollywood Reporter also says CBS constantly ignores Sheen’s off-screen behaviour while his show continues to perform: “But at some point you want CBS to two-and-a-half-man-up and say: ‘We recognize that this behavior is not OK.'”

  1. 2.5 men is complete rubbish.I am aware that Ed Phillips and Livinia Nixon are now doing other things on television now but to have a quality quiz show of 30 years going back to the days of Tony Barber and later on Glenn Ridge given the axe for idiotic programming like this is pure stupidity.I hope Nine Australia has the decency by 2011 or 2012 to bring back a New Price is Right or Temptation/Sale of the Century or invest in a decent home grown comedy.Even the short lived Australian My Two Wives was more intelligent than this Charlie Sheen Trash in a Can.

  2. @Kevin – the cast of Friends were under a lot of pressure for years to keep their show at the top, yet I do not recall any of them involved in incidents like this. Charlie has been a slow motion car wreck with cocaine since the mid- 90’s; he almost killed himself with a coke overdose back in 1998 and was hospitalised and in rehab for ages after that incident. He’s been heavily into booze, coke and hookers years before 2.5 Men was even pitched to a network. It is not the pressure of the show. It is years and years of drug abuse that has hardwired his brain to crave the stuff, and the fact that he has all the money in the world and indulgent bosses at the network that allow him to live this lifestyle.

  3. @Kevin

    Respect a guy found grovelling on the floor slurring at cops after an alleged appointment with a prostitute and copious amounts of cocaine and booze?

    I choose no. So should everyone else.

  4. “Adverse allergic reaction to medication”, bugger I usually just get a blocked nose and sneeze.
    I also manage to keep my clothes and not throw stuff around the house.

    Am I missing something ?

  5. The gloss is definitely off this ‘Mr Sheen’!

    For the sake of his 4 young children. he should use his remaining 2 1/2 brain cells and genuinely seek help.

  6. Two and Half Men is popular because it’s a good show. You people should so some respect. He’s under a lot of pressure to keep his show at the top.

    Ah, I used to enjoy going to a nightclub at the weekend and having an adverse reaction to medication… those were the days.

    What irks me is that if this had been a regular citizen, the cops wouldn’t have given them any options – it would have been straight in the clink for the night with charges likely to follow.

    @Ronnie – Nine will keep doing what they’re doing now and play the same eps over and over on all of their channels.

  8. 2.5 men says:

    I couldn’t have said it better , yes I thought the same thing last week and watching Monday’s ep confirmed it for me. Everyone else looks refreshed from their break but not old Charlie all the hard partying is catching up with him.

    Look this guy has a hugely successful sitcom, huge pay packet, 5 beautiful kids and he just walked his oldest daughter down the isle it seems he wants to distroy all that. It has to come to a point were CBS and the rest of the cast are going to say enough is enough.

  9. LMAO!!! I absolutely love publicist-speak!! “Adverse allergic reaction to medication” is the new euphemism for being absolutely ratfaced and off your gourd on the finest Colombian nose candy. LOLOL. Sheen has been a runaway train for two decades now. It’s not going to stop anytime soon, this behaviour is far too ingrained in him.He has an unlimited bank account to burn on booze, coke and hookers, and I think we can all assume he will continue to do so because he seems to like the lifestyle.

  10. It’s clear the rehab didn’t work. He’s in a hotel suite with his ex-wife and two children, and in the suite he allegedly uses cocaine, is drunk, and has a hooker for the night. He can’t control himself for even a couple of days and have a holiday with his kids.
