Charlie Sheen Arrested, Denise Richards Has Best. Christmas. Ever

Charlie Sheen was arrested early Christmas morning after his wife Brooke Mueller claimed he assaulted and choked her.

Cops responded to a 911 call around 8:34 AM yesterday before the Two and a Half Men star was arrested for felony second degree assault, felony menacing and criminal mischief in Aspen, Colorado. He spent the day behind bars at the Pitkin County Jail, until posting $8,500 bond after speaking to a county judge around 7pm.

According to reports, the couple, who wed in 2008, had been living seperately for the past 3 months but reunited for the holidays. Which didn’t go so well, as we all see.

And it turns out that Brooke was legally drunk when she made the phone call, and is now backtracking her story. Brooke registered a .13, while Charlie registered a .04. Sheen is claiming that he was just protecting himself from a drunk Mueller.

Sheen’s publicist, Stan Rosenfield, says, “Do not be mislead by appearance. Appearance and reality can be as different as night and day. It would benefit everyone not to jump to any conclusion.”

Charlie is scheduled to appear in court on February 8, 2010
