The actor who is accused of choking his wife Brooke Mueller has posted a sum of money as bail but has to face the court next year.
Charlie Sheen, who was arrested and put behind bars in Aspen on Christmas day, has been released on bond. The actor who was in the Colorado area for holiday posted an $8,500 bond on Friday, December 25 evening and was released from jail at around 7 P.M.
Earlier that day, he was booked for second-degree assault, menacing and criminal mischief, a spokesperson for the Pitkin County Sheriff's Department in Aspen said. The victim is thought to be his wife Brooke Mueller who refused treatment when the ambulance came. Sheen is due in court on February 8, 2010 at 10.30 A.M.
A call was made to 911 regarding domestic violence happening at 320 West Hallam Street in Aspen. Radar Online reported that Mueller claimed Sheen choked her during a heated argument. Mueller allegedly was already in Aspen without her husband and Sheen later flew over. It is still unclear whether their twin boys were with them when the incident happened.
