It was not, once again, the best of nights for actor Charlie Sheen – and he was a mere eight days away from the end of his 90-day probation, due to the incident with his wife Brooke Mueller in Aspen last Christmas. The star of “Two and a Half Men” was hospitalized Tuesday at the New York Presbyterian Hospital after he reportedly trashed his suite at The Plaza Hotel in Manhattan, according to a feature on the New York Daily News.
The chandelier in the actor’s suite was reportedly broken, among other things, and a police source shared that Sheen was “irrational” and that he “was getting in everyone’s face, frothing, paranoid, acting like a true [jerk].” While there were no drugs that were found in the room, it is said that Sheen admitted to drinking and snorting cocaine prior to the incident.
According to police sources, Sheen’s outrage was apparently a result of his inability to find his wallet and cell phone. He reportedly had a “mystery woman” with him in the room, and it is this woman who alerted the hotel desk of Sheen’s erratic behavior.
A spokesman for Sheen, however, downplayed the incident and gave a statement saying that the actor’s hospitalization was due to “an adverse allergic reaction to some medication.” This excuse lands in a list of “worst celebrity alibis” in another recent post on the New York Daily News.
Sheen’s ex-wife, Denise Richards, and their two daughters, were also staying at The Plaza.
Sheen has since been released from the hospital, and was expected to fly back to California.
