Thought you had a lousy Christmas? Here’s one to make you feel better (maybe? Misery loves company? No? Fine. Anyway): Charlie Sheen spent most of Christmas day in jail on a class-four felony charge of second-degree assault and a class-five felony charge of menacing and a misdemeanor count of criminal mischief.
The 44-year-old was taken into custody following an emergency call made to Aspen police by his wife, Brooke Mueller Sheen. According to TMZ, Mueller Sheen was given a breathalyzer when police arrived; the percentage of alcohol in her blood was .13, meaning she was legally drunk when she placed the call. Sheen himself registered .04.
TMZ has also reported that Muller Sheen has changed her story from what she said during the 911 call and is now refusing to be re-interviewed by police.
The couple were on a “trial separation” before they met in Aspen for the holiday, where Muller is renting a house.
Sheen was released at 7:00 PM on $8,500 bail; he is not to have any have contact with his wife.
