Actor Charlie Sheen was attacked in his Malibu home, and police officials have arrested and charged the suspect with assault and burglary.
Entertainment outlet TMZ quoted officers saying that “Charlie’s neighbor, a 47-year-old woman, forced her way into his home and attacked him when he opened the door after hearing a knock. We’re told she ripped Charlie’s shirt and attempted to strangle him and then went back to her own house.”
TMZ reported that the actor was seen by paramedics but not taken to a hospital. Reportedly, this was not the first incident. Officers stated, “We’re told Charlie doesn’t understand what prompted the incident but this apparently isn’t his first issue with her. He told deputies he believes the same woman squirted some type of sticky liquid on his car recently.”
A source closely related to Charlie Sheen also told the TMZ that he spoke to the lady after the car incident and the conversation was on the road on ‘let bygones be bygones.’ It has also come to light that the woman threw trash outside Charlie’s house a day before the attack. Charlie is the one who called 911. The woman was eventually arrested at her home and booked for assault with a deadly weapon and burglary for allegedly forcing her way into the home and attacking him, as per TMZ report.
Meanwhile, Sheen has been out of the spotlight for the past six years, focusing on his recovery, raising 14-year-old twins Max and Bob and living what he calls a “predictable routine.” But the spotlight is back. Charlie Sheen, fired from his blockbuster sitcom ‘Two and a Half Men.’ as a esult of his unusual behavior is now sober, happy and back to work, reports People.
Sheen, now 58, returns to acting, appearing as himself in two episodes from Chuck Lorreand’s new sports gambling drama Max and Bookie starring Sebastian Maniscalco.
People suggests that ‘Bookie’ allows Sheen to work again with the same series creator who famously fired him from ‘Two and a Half Men’ in 2011 for his erratic behavior after which Sheen called Lorre ‘a clown’ and ‘a turd’ during the interview.
“Look, for a while, there wasn’t much about my life to complain about,” Sheen told People. “I lived a life where people were really happy when I showed up, and they were sad when I left.”
He then talked about how his demons or his “paralysis” as he calls the struggle with drugs and alcohol changed everything. “That went away when everything turned to s–t,” he said. “It turned into, ‘Oh, God. Here he comes,’ and then ‘Is he gone? Good.'”
