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, it’s time to put on your ‘BIG boy” pants & grow up!

  13. Miguel says:

    Sheen is like the rest of the frauds, fakers and liars of Hollywood. He’s nothing other than his normal self-absorbed self, ultimately a plaugue and plunderer upon the rest of us/. As long as deluded fools keep watching movies with moral, deceptive and elitists like him, we will keep having this psycho nut doing his psycho things, unabated.

  14. Duke says:

    Charlie always pays the help well.

    That’s what Bush Derangement Syndrome will lead you to. Libs are bonkers!!!

  21. Concerned Citizen says:

    Charlie Sheen compromises the White House for the 911 coverup with Alex Jones. Thereafter, Cheen finds himself in numerous compromising positions all designed to denigrate his analysis.
    I would believe the tripe against Sheen, except that 80% of Australians polled believe that 911 was an inside job.

    1. AKinCo says:

      80% of austrailians think 911 was an inside job? i sincerely doubt THAT spurious statistic!

    2. Mel says:

      80% of Australians think beer is one of the four food groups.

  22. Snidlee Whiplash says:

    Need to hook him up with Lindsay Lohan for about a week.

    1. Dumb says:

      WE HAVE A WINNER !!!!

      How true, how true, but these Hollywood idiots to understand the real world…

    2. HMichaelH says:

      Great comment, Mike! That’s hysterical.

      But you know, the judicial system is not doing this guy a favor letting him off every time. Maybe they should throw the book at him and put him in jail for as long as the law will allow. I nominate the judge who is dealing with Lindsey Lohan to hear the Sheen case.

  37. Happy Gay says:

    Was the “escort” a transexual? Should make a great story for Two and a Half Men!

  38. Janine says:

    Guess he’s the “half” man? Body by Mercedes-brain by Mattel….

  39. Rob says:

    Throw him in jail and move on

  40. Bill says:

    Anyone else would be in jail. What a loser

  41. harry says:

  42. Mr Hollywood Liberal says:

    Yes, yes, yes … But ell us about his political views and advise so we know who to vote for.

    1. srs says:

      That’s funny…. I love it.

    2. Max Lander says:

      That comes in the next media punch.
      Punch #1: discredit Charlie.
      Punch #2: link Charlie to political views.

  43. dg says:

    What’s the point of being a rich celebrity if you can’t party with hot women and trash expensive hotels?

    1. Rico Suave says:

      True that!

      1. The Truth says:

        Party on Charlie

      2. Steve-O says:

        Got that right. Money and fame has it privileges.

    2. Drew says:

      HAHAHA… well played sir. Perfect comment!

    3. t says:

      Good luck Charlie. I think you are great. Ignore the fat, druggie, Rush’s supporters.

      1. AJ says:

        You sir are an idiot.

    4. pompey says:

      ….good point…….

  44. Walljasper says:

    1. Jack says:

      what a piece of trash, Charlie Sheen

  45. John says:

    Well it’s obvious which one is the half-a-man in the show title

  46. Dumb says:

    No doubt CBS will now give him another hefty raise…

  47. BobM54 says:

    Yes and he’s a Democrat… so lets give him one more chance!

    1. frhb30 says:

      Seriously, when you read this news, the first thing you think of is his political affiliation.

      1. David says:

        considering that Pelosi racked up $5 trillion in new debt over the last 4 years, when you see an outspoken liberal democrat actor trash a hotel, hire an escort, and justifies his behaviour with some lame excuse as my wallet was missing, One has a very good image of the house democratic leadership trashing america’s house.

      2. STEVE says:

        YES! Irresponsible derelict getting a free ride while lecturing others. DEMOCRAT!

    2. GL says:

      Democrats love to forgive other Democrats.
      Forgive Republicans, not that they need it, however , never.

      1. steve says:

        If it were a republican, there would have been a young man in the closet hiding.

        1. MDWhite says:

          …or maybe in Barney Frank’s basement.

    3. rosie o'donnell says:

      Morty Seinfeld, “why wallet is gone, my wallet is gone

      Maybe like sheen portrays 9/11 as an inside job, i think to shut him up, the governement set him up…

    4. Lewdogg says:

      He’s just upset that the Dem’s are going to LOSE on Tuesday!

    5. stevie g says:

      Thank God, if he was a republican he would have sent the bill to someone else.

      1. Bruce says:

        “Steve” aka “Stevie G” (how cute) has his head – typical of liberals – up his rectum. What cute retorts, Stevie! How old are you … 12? Time to get back in mommy’s basement and leave her computer alone. Nice try though!

      2. Tim says:

        Republicans freed the slaves. It is too bad they can’t free you from your mental disorder.

    6. Jeff says:

      So this is about politics, so easily twisted…. Your asinine response isn’t appreciated! =)

    7. bower-in-chief says:

      I blame Bush for the condition of the room.

    8. Mark says:

      Not sure about democrat but he is a truther for sure.

  48. cap says:

    get up stand up grow up

  49. Widow Maker says:

    Maybe the room was infested with bedbugs.

    1. Joann says:

      that’s what I was thinking!! LOL

    2. AnneP says:

      One can only hope.

    3. stef says:

      God I wish I had thrown furniture out the window with that happened to me at a major hotel in Phoenix.
