Actor reaches plea agreement with prosecutors
“Two and a Half Men” Charlie Sheen has reportedly reached a deal with Colorado authorities over domestic violence allegations involving his wife.
Published reports indicated Sheen was set to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge on Monday and begin serving a 30-day sentence immediately. Such a timetable would allow Sheen to avoid disrupting the regular production sked of the eighth season of the Warner Bros. TV laffer, which will resume lensing in late summer.
The fact that Sheen has reached an agreement with prosecutors was confirmed to the Associated Press by authorities in Aspen, where Sheen was arrested on Christmas Day, but no details were disclosed. Reps for Sheen and Warner Bros. TV declined comment.
Sheen has pleaded not guilty to menacing, criminal mischief and assault charges stemming from an argument with his wife, Brooke Mueller Sheen, on Christmas Day at an Aspen home where they were on vacation.
Sheen is scheduled to be in court Monday for a disposition hearing.
His trial had been scheduled for July 21.
The reported plea agreement comes two weeks after Sheen inked a rich $60 million contract with Warner Bros. TV to continue on “Two and a Half Men” for another two seasons.
