Update: Charlie Sheen Spends Christmas Day In Jail

Update: Rumors and reports are flying following the news of Charlie Sheen’s arrest for domestic assault yesterday (December 25).

RadarOnline is reporting that Charlie and his wife of less than two years Brooke Mueller have been separated for the past several months, and that the actor had only recently arrived in Aspen to spend Christmas with the family.

“Both of them are miserable in the marriage. That’s why they were apart,” a source close to the couple claims. “Both were separately telling friends their marriage was over before this happened.”

In the meantime, according to TMZ Brooke was intoxicated at the time of the call to 911 and Charlie told police he was just trying to defend himself against her attacks.

Brooke reportedly recanted her original version of the day’s events shortly before Charlie’s bail hearing, though there are rumors that she was pressured into doing so.

    Can’t wait to hear what really happened, I’ve never liked him.

    What a loser. He’ll never change. I feel bad for Brooke, Denise, and his children.

    Yes, a total loser indeed. Too bad he keeps procreating and spreading his bad genes to his offspring. These women need to wise up. He will NEVER change. He treated his first wife before Denise like crap too and was only married to her for about a year or so. It ended horribly with him saying terrible things about her in the press like “being married to Donna was worse than being in a maximum security prison”. And yet he keeps getting married and keeps failing at it.

    He is an abomination and should go away.

    According to another site, Brooke was drunk at the time of the 911 call (at 8:30 in the morning) and since then, has admitted that she was lying about the abuse claims. I’m not saying this is necessarily true but it seems that this case is not as straightforward as originally thought. Either way, he does have a bit of a shady past. What a shame either way. I guess their marriage is on the rocks…

    I heard the same story about Brooke being drunk. When the police questioned her afterwards, she acknowledged that she lied to them. There was a breathalizer done on the scene, she registered a .13 at 8:30 AM, Charlie was a .04, and not drunk. Charlie has definitely had his problems in the past, but I would fault Brooke here, not him.

    Well, I read where she has been living in Colorado for the past 3 months with the kids to get away from him while they are working on their marital problems. Now, since she made “false accusations” about Sheen, the cops are planning to press charges against her as well. Cops said is isn’t uncommon to have happen and the lying party will go down as well. Sheen is still going to face charges in February. What a mess.

    The real victims here are Max and Bob… what a way to spend their first Christmas.

    why anybody who would marry this idiot is beyond me. Meal ticket anyone?

    Hope all of his children can rise above this situation.
