Charlie Sheen Returns to LA After Assault Arrest in Aspen

Actor Charlie Sheen was arrested on Christmas Day and charged with domestic violence after an incident with his third wife, Brooke Mueller

This all took place in Aspen, Colorado, where Sheen was visiting his wife.  (The LA Times says Sheen was in Aspen to visit Mueller, who had taken a rental home there for three months.) According to the local Aspen Times, “Sheen was taken into custody by Aspen police officer Rick Magnuson following a 911 call made at 8:34 a.m. from 320 W. Hallam St., a single-family home in the West End neighborhood.”

The charges are listed as a class-four felony charge of second-degree assault, a class-five felony charge of menacing, and a misdemeanor charge of criminal mischief.

Sheen is not listed among the current inmates in the Pitkin County jail; the Aspen Times says he was bonded out around 6:00 pm on Christmas night and headed back to Los Angeles.

Sheen has a history of rocky relations with wives and girlfriends. He and Denise Richards went through an acrimonious divorce in 2006, and he once shot girlfriend Kelly Preston in the arm (in her pre-Travolta days), though that was declared an accident. 

Of course, Aspen is no stranger to domestic violence, or for that matter to accidental shootings. Singer Claudine Longet shot skiier Spider Sabich to death there in 1976 in one of the most notorious domestic incidents of the 1970s.  Longet went free when the shooting was ruled an accident.
