Charlie Sheen will not face criminal charges for New York hotel incident
Charlie Sheen will not be charged for his October 25 outburst at New York's Plaza hotel while he was under the influence of an unknown substance.
"There have been no arrests. That case is closed," said an NYPD spokesman tells E! News.
The incident was being investigated after Capri Anderson, a porn star and Sheen's escort for the night, filed a criminal complaint claiming Sheen had harassed and assaulted her. According to Anderson, Sheen became intoxicated and was yelling and throwing furniture at her.
The morning after the alleged 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.
Anderson filed a criminal complaint on November 22 against Sheen because of the incident. "A report was taken alleging harassment in the second degree," NYPD spokesman Lt. John Grimpel said at the time according to E! News.
Later that same day, the actor then filed a lawsuit accusing Anderson of trying to extort money from him.
Sheen's attorney denied Anderson's claims and the actor's lawsuit and called her "an opportunistic, pornographic film star and publicity hungry scam-artist". It said she "fabricated a sensational story as a basis for an extortion plot against Sheen" and alleges the Anderson threatened that she would file a criminal complaint against the actor if he did not pay her $1 million.
"These allegations against Mr. Sheen are completely false, and are a blatant attempt to cash in on his celebrity," Sheen's attorney had said in a statement made earlier in the day. "Ms. Capri never made any allegation to the police of any wrongful conduct on the part of Mr. Sheen on the night of the incident and she had every opportunity to do so. If she pursues legal action, we will defend this vigorously and will never pay her a dime."
