Charlie Sheen to donate San Francisco tour stop merchandise profit to beaten baseball fan
Charlie Sheen reportedly plans to donate the profits made from merchandise sold during his tour stop in San Francisco on Saturday to a Giants fan severely beaten during the Los Angeles Dodgers' home opening game, according to the Associated Press.
The actor's publicist made the announcement on Thursday that the profits will go to benefit the fan, Bryan Stow, a paramedic who had to be placed into a medically induced coma after being beaten on March 31 outside Dodgers Stadium.
Sheen, who starred in the baseball-themed "Major League" films, is an avid baseball fan and collector. He has drawn cheers for sporting the hometown ball club's jersey in cities on his "Violent Torpedo of Truth" tour.
The actor sells T-shirts and other merchandise emblazoned with some of his new catchphrases, including "Duh, Winning."
Last week, Sheen told the audience at his Ft. Lauderdale show that he was dumped by one of his "goddesses" via text message, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
When asked by an audience member how he handled dating two women at the same time, he reportedly answered, "Not well, because one left."
The actor also commented on another star's legal woes, Lindsay Lohan. The actress was recently set free on bail after a judge sentenced her to 120 days behind bars for violating her 2007 probation.
When asked by another audience member if he had any wisdom for the troubled starlet, Sheen said, "I would hug her and let her know it's gonna be ok."
The actor's outing in Ft. Lauderdale went better than some of his other tour stops, according to the industry paper. During his Detroit and New York City shows, Sheen was booed, however in Ft. Lauderdale Sheen was "a surprise hit," according to the report.
The show also featured guest appearances by former NBA star Dennis Rodman and comedian Jeff Ross.
In April, Sheen stirred up some controversy when he tweeted a picture while on his way to his "Torpedo of Truth" stop in Washington D.C. on Tuesday evening.
Authorities said they're investigating after Sheen, 45, tweeted a picture taken inside a Washington D.C. police car that shows the speedometer at 80 mph.
Along with it, he tweeted, "in car with Police escort in front and rear! driving like someone's about to deliver a baby! Cop car lights #Spinning!"
Sheen's show reportedly started almost an hour late.
Last week, Sheen was in a Los Angeles court for a child custody case. Sheen's bid for sole custody over his and his estranged wife Brooke Mueller's twin sons, Bob and Max, was rejected.
The judge ruled instead that a previous deal the two had worked out regarding their children will remain in effect, ABC News reported.
Under his deal with Mueller, she maintains primary custody of the boys and the two parties must remain sober for the terms of the agreement to remain valid.
In March, Mueller had their boys removed from the 45-year-old actor's home, where he lives with two younger girlfriends, or "goddesses," and filed a temporary restraining order against the actor, citing domestic violence and calling him "insane."
Sheen and Mueller married in 2008. The actor filed for divorce from Mueller in November and agreed to pay $55,000 a month in child support. Their divorce is set to be finalized on May 2.
