Brooke Mueller, Charlie Sheen’s wife, told police that she was terrified the actor was going to kill her when he allegedly attacked her with a knife.
Brooke Mueller made a frantic 911 call after a blazing row at the couple’s holiday home in Aspen, Colorado, on Christmas Day, December 25.
According to YahooNews, in the phone call Mueller told officers, “My husband had me with a knife and I’m scared for my life, and he threatened me. I thought I was going to die.”
In the call, Mueller identifies herself as “Brooke” and pauses when the operator asks for her husband’s name. She then replied, “It’s Charlie Sheen.”
Sheen, 44, was arrested on investigation of second-degree assault, a felony charge, and criminal mischief, a misdemeanour charge, and spent much of his sons Bob and Max’s first Christmas behind bars.
Police say Charlie Sheen surrendered a folding knife with a 4-inch blade.
He was later released on an $8,500 bail and while he was not charged, a court date has been set for February 8 2010.
It has since been claimed the alleged attack happened after Mueller told Sheen she wanted to end their 17-month marriage. “Brooke told Charlie, ‘I want a divorce.’ She said she was leaving him for good.” – the source said.
One of their friends said, “Brooke is very social and loves to be with other people and Charlie, when he’s not working or rehearsing for his show, prefers to stay home. He’s not into the Hollywood scene and doesn’t even enjoy going out to dinner.”
