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!”

  14. Urso says:

    Seriously people? I guess anything to score political potshots. “Wah wah wah, he’s a liberal.” “Boo frickety hoo, at least he’s not a conservative.” Extremists on either side have hijacked all potlitical discourse and now are using any excuse to point fingers. You’re like a bunch of preschoolers caught playing with your own soiled diapers then trying to blame each other for the stains on the wall. Grow the eff up.

  15. dougsoderstrom says:

    Poems actually written in blood…… yes…… in that of my own blood!

  16. roxanne says:

    Maybe if his father (Nartin Sheen) had given less attention to his left-wing rantings and more attention to his son, Charlies might have grown up.

  17. dougsoderstrom says:

    Perhaps he should read my “Poems Written in Blood.” Maybe that would help to straighten things out.

  18. The Lulz says:

  21. Rupert Pupkin says:

    Is he a Cowboys fan?

  22. William Hoooper says:

  29. Reggie1971 says:

    1. rl says:

      Ever hear of spell check????

  34. Two & a Half Brain Cells says:

    Hey Charlie, I know this girl…you two would be great…let’s see…I can’t find her number, but her name is, ah, Lindsay Lohan…yeah…that’s it.

    1. Bob Forsberg says:

      Lindsay doesn’t do old guys with bad eyebrow dye jobs.

  35. michael says:

    Sounds like he was reliving his dad’s Apocalypse Now hotel scene!

    1. Bud Fox says:

      Or he thought that he could call his dad, President Bartlett, to get him off the hook.

      1. RUFUS LEVIN says:


  36. NotSurprised says:

    Let’s just throw out the old “allergic reaction” to medication excuse and give another hollywood idiot a free pass. They let their pretend world cross over into the real world and look what happens.

    1. Killerman says:

      I have an allergy to 750ml of single malt scotch, too.

  37. MikeInToronto says:

    If you were raised by a psychotic communist wack job like Martin Sheen, you’d have problems too!

    1. William Hooper says:

      You’re right. We really can’t be too hard on Charlie.

  38. Disgusted says:

    Allergic reaction to medication my foot. He was drunk. He either left his wallet where he was partying or couldn’t find the wallet in his pocket because he didn’t have a pocket, he wasn’t wearing pants at the time. Rehab doesn’t work unless you have a desire to straighten up. Sheen’s behavior doesn’t seem to indicate any such desire. He should pair up with Lindsay Lohan.

  39. bubba says:

    Just another episode of Two and a Half men.

  40. scott says:

    Did Alec Baldwin ever move back to the United States after Bush’s term was over?

    1. Grady Wilson says:

      No, he still lives in the Hamptons.

      1. killerman says:

        He, he, he, he!!!

  41. shooter says:

    Sheen will be the next “celebrity death.”

  42. 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

  43. Vin says:

    This is just a girlie man who seriously needs a good ole ass kicking.

  44. Blake Davis says:

    The Sheens – typical liberals. This is the guy we should listen to as to the direction of the country?

  45. Milkman says:

    Oh no! I hope he sobers up right before the elections so he tells me who i should vote for this time!
    Haha.. How pathetic! Isn’t this dude in that show almost half a man?
    I think we will all take him more serious when his movie about 9/11 comes out showing America it was a inside job!

  46. Mandy says:

    So tired of hearing about this stooge. But Hollywood loves these fools and give them TV shows and movie contracts.

  47. Oprah says:

    At least he’s not jumping up and down on the couch

  48. sandalwood says:

    I’ve got him in the same catagory with Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan.

    1. Ruth says:

      Good comment Sandalwood. Nuff said.
