Charlie Sheen's home searched by LAPD officers
The Los Angeles Police Department appeared at the home of Charlie Sheen on Thursday night shortly after 8 p.m. PT. According to LAPD officials, it was not a raid. Officers were reportedly investigating if the actor was in possession of firearms.
According to the LAPD, as part of his ex-wife Brooke Muller's temporary restraining order, which she obtained last week, the actor is prohibited from possessing firearms. As of this writing, Police are still searching Sheen's home.
"#fastball: all good here on homefront," Sheen Tweeted just before 9 p.m. PT. "All reports are false. I'll explain more very soon. #Dogspeed c."
Muller had filed a temporary restraining order against him earlier this month and removed their sons from his care, citing domestic violence and calling him "insane."
Sheen and Muller have been involved a custody battle over his twin sons Bob and Max, who turn 2 next week. Last week, Sheen said he and their mother, estranged wife Brooke Mueller, had come to a verbal agreement.
Sheen has denied her claims. The two married in 2008. The actor filed for divorce from Mueller in November.
In August 2010, Sheen pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge regarding a confrontation with Mueller that had occurred in December 2009. He was sentenced to 30 days in a rehabilitation center, 30 days of probation and 36 hours of anger management.
The 45-year-old actor was axed from the series on Monday, March 7, after he unleashed a slew of erratic on-air ramblings, bashing executives and coining phrases such as "Duh, winning!" and "tiger blood." He had threatened to take legal action.
Sheen is seeking compensation for himself and the crew for the remaining eight episodes of the current eighth season.
Production on "Two and a Half Men" was suspended in January after Sheen underwent rehab for drug and alcohol addiction and halted in February after he insulted Lorre during a radio interview.
Sheen had said in interviews last week that he is currently sober. Warner Bros. Television said in its firing letter that the actor had "been engaged in dangerously self-destructive conduct and appears to be very ill."
Sheen began playing party-loving Charlie Harper on "Two and a Half Men" when the series premiered in 2003. Jon Cryer was cast as his character's straight-edge brother.
