Charlie Sheen rushed to the hospital early Thursday morning, rep confirms
Actor Charlie Sheen was rushed to the hospital early Thursday morning for severe abdominal pains, the actor's spokesperson confirmed to KABC-TV. "He was having severe abdominal pains and went to the hospital," the actor's spokesperson said.
Though it is not clear which hospital Sheen was sent to, The Los Angeles Fire Department spokesperson confirms that an ambulance was sent to the actor's home at 6:35 a.m. and an unidentified person was transported to a local hospital.
The "Two and a Half Men" star's recent behavior has raised a few eyebrows, including the CBS President Nina Tassler, who told television critics at a recent conference that network executives "have a high level of concern" about the star, according to Entertainment Weekly.
She added, "On a personal level, we obviously have concern. On a professional level, he does his job and he does it well. This show is a hit. That's all I have to say."
The event comes after his October 25 outburst at New York's Plaza hotel with porn star Capri Anderson where he was under the influence of an unknown substance. According to Anderson, Sheen became intoxicated and was yelling and throwing furniture at her.
The morning after the incident, police stormed Sheen's hotel room and the actor was taken to the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation and was released hours later. His spokesperson had said at the time that the actor had reacted badly to medication.
The actor pleaded guilty in August 2010 to a misdemeanor assault charge regarding a December confrontation his wife Brooke Mueller in Colorado and was sentenced to 30 days in a rehabilitation center, 30 days of probation and 36 hours of anger management. They have both undergone stints in rehab.
