Los Angeles Times: Actor Charlie Sheen is scheduled to be arraigned Monday afternoon in an Aspen, Colo., courtroom on charges related to his Christmas Day arrest for allegedly holding a knife to his wife's throat after she reportedly threatened to leave him.

Pitkin County prosecutor Arnold Mordkin will announce whether he will file felony charges stemming from the Dec. 25 incident, in which Sheen's wife, Brooke Mueller, told police she feared for her life. He was arrested on charges of criminal assault, menacing and criminal mischief.

Sheen and Mueller, married since 2008 and parents of twin boys, had been arguing early Christmas morning when Mueller said she wanted a divorce, according to the affidavit in the case. Mueller said Sheen had pinned her to a bed and held a knife to her throat as he straddled her.

Sheen was released that night from Pitkin County Jail on $8,500 bail.

Sheen's lawyer, Richard Cummins, would not comment on reports that Sheen and Mueller were making efforts to reconcile. Mueller's attorney, Yale Galanter, has not responded to phone calls seeking comment.

Sheen previously pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of battery with serious bodily injury after a 1996 incident in which he was accused of knocking then-girlfriend Brittany Ashland to the ground. Read the complete article.
