Charlie Sheen Allegedly Trashed Plaza Hotel Room

NEW YORK (CBS New York/AP) — Charlie Sheen was hospitalized Tuesday for a psychiatric evaluation after a woman called police to say the star was throwing furniture and yelling in his room at The Plaza, sources told 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria.

Police were called to the room at about 2 a.m. and Sheen appeared highly intoxicated, a law enforcement official said. He was not arrested and went voluntarily.

Sheen’s representative said the actor was taken to a hospital after having an allergic reaction to medication. The spokesman, Stan Rosenfield, said Sheen headed back to Los Angeles Tuesday night.

Sources told CBS 2 HD that Sheen was highly intoxicated when he was found and had apparently started drinking about 8 p.m. Monday. A mystery woman allegedly called police sometime after 1:30 a.m. from inside the bathroom in the room for help.

The New York Post reported that police officials said the woman was an escort.

Sources said the unidentified woman in the room claimed Sheen, 45,  was acting irrationally and throwing furniture. Sheen reportedly told police he had been “out partying” and flew into a rage when noticed his wallet was missing after returning to his room.

At least $7,000 in damages to the hotel room was recorded, sources said. Tables and chairs had apparently been thrown around the room and a chandelier was also damaged.

On Tuesday night the Plaza Hotel was still buzzing.

“I saw it this morning and I wasn’t even planning on coming here and then I just saw the TV cameras now,” tourist Mary Gonzalez told CBS 2’s Hazel Sanchez.

“It didn’t surprise me. I mean he has a pretty bad track record,” Michelle Frank of Chelsea said.

“You have to have a heavy heart for people that are in trouble.  You have to sympathize for those types of people,” Michael Damato said.

Sunday night, Sheen, ex-wife Denise Richards, and their daughters Sam, 6, and Lola, 5, took in a showing of “Mary Poppins” as part of a long family weekend.  They all stayed in separate rooms at the Plaza Hotel.

Richards accompanied Sheen to New York-Presbyterian Hospital, according to reports. Sheen was reportedly in New York on a family vacation.

The Plaza Hotel is not filing any charges. Sheen was not arrested.

It was the latest in a series of troubles for Sheen, the star of CBS’ “Two and a Half Men,” who has had problems with alcohol and drugs in the past.

In August, he pleaded guilty in Aspen, Colo. to misdemeanor third-degree assault after a Christmas Day assault on his second wife, Brooke Mueller Sheen. Prosecutors dropped more serious charges and he avoided jail time and he was sentenced to 30 days in a rehabilitation center, 30 days of probation and 36 hours of anger management.

In the 9-1-1 call, Mueller told the operator: “My husband had me, with a knife, and I’m scared for my life, and he threatened me.”

Mueller Sheen told police that the actor threatened to kill her and brandished a knife after she told him she wanted a divorce. Charlie Sheen said they argued but he denied threatening her, and he told police that he was upset by the divorce threat. Sheen previously went through a bitter divorce and custody battle with his ex-wife Denise Richards.

Because of Sheen’s reputation, guests and people who had gathered outside the hotel took the news in stride.

“I know a lot of people who do things like that — men and women. No one’s perfect,” German tourist Claudia Wieland said.

In December 1996, he was charged with attacking a girlfriend at his Southern California home. He later pleaded no contest and was placed on two years of probation.

In 1998, his father, actor Martin Sheen, turned him in for violating his parole after a cocaine overdose sent him to the hospital. He was ordered to undergo a rehabilitation program.

He also had a very bitter and public divorce with actress Denise Richards, the mother of his two children, Sam, 6, and Lola, 5.

Sheen is also the star of films such as “Platoon,” “Wall Street” and “Hot Shots!”

    Hey Charlie, Man Up baby boy!

  2. Joe says:

    I’m sorry. I shouldn’t laugh at this, but I can’t help it. The visual image of the police walking in and finding the room trashed, Charlie naked on the floor, and a naked woman in the closet screaming is just too funny. I’d love to see a short comedy film of all the events leading up to that ending.

    1. Ho...hum says:

      I’m sure the “talent” at SNL will come up with a skit that we’ll be unfunny as all get out.

  3. Dave says:

    It’s George Bushs’ fault

  4. Just Speculating says:

    it is his fault Pushing the Dem agenda now the economy is worse than ever and someone had to turn to crime and steal his wallet to provide for thier children, and get medicine for Tiny Tim!

  5. Ant says:

    Hey, give the guy a break. He lost his wallet.

  6. Obamaismuslim says:

    No tienes tu walleto, Carlos?

  7. Soonerdiver says:

    Was he NOT on probation? Throw his sorry, unrepentant butt into jail and let him dry out there.

  8. Joe M says:

    what did the escort look like?

  9. Jim Webster says:

    He has everything and nothing. It is a sad, sad story. I just turned 72 and I expect to read someday of his death.

  10. JAY IT'S MOM says:


  11. pat says:

    Of course he’s a democrat, didn’t you read the story about what happened?

  12. Pete says:

    He should do the world a favor and kill himself. And Hollywood needs to be kicked in the ass for renewing his contract on that horrible show.

  13. Perrin says:

    He’s a Method Actor, a true professional who was simply perfecting his role as Charlie on Two and a Half Men.

  14. porkchops says:

    BEDBUGS? From China?

  15. pat says:

    Did he pay for the hotel room and the prostitute? Or did he try to skip out on the bill like our famous Police Commissioner Ray Kelly as reported in the Daily News today whenever he recieves a check?

  16. Zed says:

    ROCK & ROLL, BABY! Love it! Charlie Sheen is AWESOME!

    As for you slow-witted chumps posting your tripe (If you were once a male) you’ve been neutered by the social engineers over the last four decades. Enjoy your pathetic, sterilized, feeble, lives.

    1. cindinator says:

      Zed, you realize your name means zero as does your comments

    2. RL says:

      ZED, I am not a “slow-witted chump” I am a female over 50 and I think Sheen’s behavior is pathetic. Yet his wife stays with him. Guess she is like Hillary staying with Bill after he embarrassed her over and over and over again.

  17. Slade says:

    Sheen’s wallet wasn’t in his pocket because he didn’t have a pocket. He was NAKED. What a NUT.

  18. Flangegpp says:

    Martin Sheen is a failure in life. He’s spent his whole life getting arrested in support of America’s enemies and this is how his children turned out. Great parenting . A traitor to his country and his family. Loser!

  19. John says:

    Charlie Sheen will be given a “that’s Charlie being Charlie” pass by Hollywood and the lamestream media. The very same hypocrites who want to ostracize Mel Gibson.

  20. cindinator says:

    Surprise, surprise….

  21. Gork says:

    All you critical mouth-breathers do the same things (when the race isn’t on), you just do it in your trailers and it’s the mother of your children screaming in the closet…

    1. RUFUS LEVIN says:


    2. killerman says:

      Charlie stole ‘um…….

  22. Todd says:

    he is currently a child of satan

    he needs to become a child of God

    1. Rod Flanders says:

      Hi Todd! I’m…a…TORSO!

  23. jeigh says:

    Someone put the poor fool out of his misery! Please!

  24. Todd says:

    he needs to find God Jesus

    1. killerman says:

      He needs to find St. Jude, upstate NY and soon.

  25. RidgeRunner says:

    Why watch this loser’s show in the first place?
    All it does is empower him with money and recognition, so he can easily rationalize not getting some serious help.

  26. DigDug says:

    Democrats are cracking. Gotta love it!!!

  27. B. Haley says:

    Maybe some compassion is in order for a human being who is obviously ill. I am a dyed in the wool conservative, and the Sheen’s politics are diametrically opposed to mine, but this man’s problems are not political. We should pray for his healing and recovery. May God be with him and his family

    1. Kate says:

      ABSOLUTELY RIGHT….thanks for the reminder. “There, but for the grace of God, go I”

  28. Sgt. Elias says:

    I don’t find it strange that Charlie Sheen was drunk, naked, and trashed his hotel room.

    I find it strange that a naked prostitute was in the room with him, yet somehow his ex-wife suddenly turns up all of a sudden and escorts him to the hospital.

    That’s odd.

    1. RUFUS LEVIN says:


  29. GGGGGG says:

    he’s not going to get thrown in jail because the plaza will send him a bill for 7 grand, he’ll pay it happily, and then stay at the plaza again next time. No loss for them to send him a bill. Anyone who can afford to pay for their trashed hotel room would be treated the same way.

    1. killerman says:

      Has “hate” become the new chic negative stereotype like “bigot”… try thinking.

    2. DrJimmy says:

      Wow. you really are brain dead Mike. Let’s see what have I done lately with myself? Ya know, boring stuff like caring for my family, working at my job, paying my taxes. But you probably wouldn’t understand that if you think that “doing something with your life” equates to acting like Charlie Dumb@ss.
