Charlie Sheen Threatened Wife With Knife, Report

KTLA: Colorado law enforcement sources say actor Charlie Sheen wielded a deadly weapon during a confrontation with his wife, Brooke Mueller on Christmas morning.

The 44-year-old actor was taken into custody Friday morning by officers responding to a 911 call from a house in this tiny, ski-resort town about 200 miles west of Denver.

After E! Online reported that a weapon was involved in the incident, the Aspen Daily News confirmed the allegation and discovered that his arrest actually involved suspicion of "felony menacing with a deadly weapon."

According to TMZ, Mueller told officers that Sheen was in possession of a knife and threatened her with it.

The "Two and a Half Men" star was booked on suspicion of "second-degree assault, a felony, and criminal mischief, a misdemeanor," according to the Aspen newspaper.

RadarOnline reported that Mueller successfully obtained a restraining order against the actor born Carlos Irwin Estevez, but People magazine reports that the pair wants to work it out and will undergo marriage counseling.

Following the arrest, Sheen's publicist cautioned against assuming his client is guilty in the Christmas incident: "Do not be mislead by appearance," Stan Rosenfield said.

"Appearance and reality can be as different as night and day. It would benefit everyone not to jump to any conclusion."

TMZ reported, in fact, that Mueller had stopped cooperating with police. That, however, hasn't stopped authorities from pursuing their case.

A chief deputy district attorney indicated to the site that charges would likely be filed against Sheen regardless.

Sheen had reportedly flown to the area to visit the home Mueller was renting in Aspen to be with her, but the two apparently began arguing right away.

After an reported scuffle, Mueller called the police, the site reported.

Sheen and Mueller married in 2008, and welcomed twin baby boys earlier this year.
