Charlie Sheen Arrested For Domestic Violence On Christmas

Stripper-lovin’ Charlie Sheen is keeping it klassy, as usual. Sheen was arrested in Aspen yesterday for allegedly assaulting his wife, Brooke Mueller, mother to his twin boys. Sheen was released later in the day after posting $8,500 bail.

Apparently, cops responded to a 911 call on Christmas morning from Mueller, claiming Sheen assaulted her. But when the police arrived, Sheen claimed he was just fending his wife off. Mmm-kay. Sheen, 44, was charged with felony second degree assault, felony menacing and criminal mischief, a misdemeanor. TMZ reports all three charges are “coupled with a domestic violence component.” If what Mueller alleges is actually true, that would make Sheen a repeat domestic abuser: In 1998, Sheen pleaded no contest to smashing his then-girlfriend Brittany Ashland’s face into the floor during a dispute. He was charged $2,800 and two years probation. Ah, well, that appears to not have worked.

Really, guys. What is it about celebrities and domestic disputes on holidays? Somewhere Sheen’s notoriously bitter ex-wife, Denise Richards, is dancing a jig of joy. [TMZ, TMZ, People]
