Charlie Sheen hospitalized in N.Y.
October 26, 2010
Charlie Sheen’s 90-day probation stemming from a Christmas Day altercation in Aspen with his wife ends Nov. 2, but he will not be charged with violating it because of an incident in New York Tuesday, Pitkin County prosecutor Arnold Mordkin said.
That’s because Sheen, whom The Associated Press reported was hospitalized for a psychiatric evaluation after a woman told police he was throwing furniture and yelling in his hotel room, was not arrested, Mordkin said.
“No crime was committed, as far as I know,” Mordkin said. “He wasn’t charged with a crime.”
Police were called to The Plaza by hotel security at about 2 a.m. and Sheen appeared highly intoxicated, a law enforcement official said. The actor was not arrested and went voluntarily. The official was not authorized to speak publicly about the encounter and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.
Sheen’s publicist blamed an allergic reaction to medication as the reason for the incident.
In August, Sheen pleaded guilty in Pitkin County District Court to misdemeanor third-degree assault after a Dec. 25 altercation with his wife, Brooke Mueller Sheen. Prosecutors dropped more serious charges and he avoided jail time, and instead was sentenced to 30 days in a rehabilitation center, 90 days of probation and 36 hours of anger management.
