Charlie Sheen clearly doesn't like going to the dentist, because he's under investigation for assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly going nuts in a dental chair in a rock cocaine-fueled rage ... TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell us ... Charlie was at an L.A. dental office last Thursday for an abscess. He sat in the chair as the dental technician placed a mask over his face to administer nitrous oxide, when she says Charlie went insane ... flailing his arms and striking her.
The technician told cops she walked out of the room as Charlie's security guard entered. Charlie's personal dentist was there along with the oral surgeon. There was a lot of commotion and the technician says when Charlie's dentist finally came out he told her Charlie pulled a knife and went after him. The dentist wasn't hurt.
The technician also told cops the bodyguard told the dentist Charlie was high on rock cocaine.
We're told there's an active LAPD investigation and cops are looking at a possible battery against the technician and felony assault with a deadly weapon for the alleged knife attack on the dentist.
We're told cops want to interview Charlie and the dentist before sending the case over to the L.A. County D.A., who will decide whether to prosecute.
We reached out to Charlie ... so far, nothing back.
Tells Judge, I'm Not the Bitch from Bravo
35 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
Teresa Giudice will be sentenced Thursday morning ... and TMZ has learned she'll throw herself at the mercy of the court, telling the judge "Real Housewives of New Jersey" is phony and she's actually real nice.
Teresa has filed legal docs in which she argues for NO jail time. She says the judge should not be influenced by her role in "RHONJ" because "The image is little more than a carefully crafted fiction, engineered by Bravo TV through scripted lines and clever editing."
She also says she and Joe have 4 young daughters. Joe -- who will almost certainly be sentenced Thursday to prison -- is now also subject to deportation. Teresa says if she goes to prison, the girls will likely have to be split up because no one relative can take all 4.
And Teresa says ... she"s more than happy to forfeit any ill-gotten money from the wire fraud if she gets to skate. She says she's willing to do community service and accept home detention.
And finally Teresa says she does a lot of charity work with sick kids and others, and she can be more useful in the community than behind bars.
Here's the problem. The sentencing guidelines provide for a prison sentence of somewhere between 21 and 27 months. She's gunning for mercy.

I Can't Stop Ebola This Time
45 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
The little girl who stopped an Ebola outbreak 20 years ago -- in the movies, anyway -- is right in the middle of the real life outbreak in Dallas ... and she's terrified it can't be blocked this time.
Kara Bosworth played Rene Russo's daughter in "Outbreak" back in '95. She's the kid who captured patient zero -- the African monkey that brought Ebola to the U.S. -- and as bad luck would have it ... she now lives in Dallas.
Kara tells us she's keeping a close eye on the case everyone's talking about, but doesn't plan on fleeing Big D ... yet. Kara, now 25, learned a few things from the movie ... telling us she won't run for the hills unless the virus mutates and becomes airborne.
Kara's biggest fear is the CDC won't be able to squash this, and all of Dallas could be quarantined -- a la "Outbreak." She adds, "A plate of apples [to lure a monkey] probably won't work this time."

Like A Bad Check

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino scored a victory in court -- for a change -- getting his bouncy paycheck case dropped.
We broke the story ... workers at his NJ tanning salon went to cops in June claiming their paychecks bounced. Sitch blamed it on a clerical error, but one woman pressed charges anyway.

As a formality, he had to show up in court on Monday ... and the judge officially dropped the charge and dismissed the case.
If only federal tax fraud indictments went away that easily.

Bloody Stalking Isn't Sexy ...
Say Rape Victim Groups
10/1/2014 4:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Blood-covered sex is NOT the most disturbing part of Maroon 5's new music video -- it's Adam Levine creepily stalking a woman all over town ... which glorifies rape ... according to victims' rights groups.
The "Animals" vid is getting a ton of attention -- from people who love it, and from those who think it's sending a dangerous message. If you haven't seen it ... Adam lurks in the shadows, trailing a beautiful woman he fantasizes about banging. Spoiler alert: he ends up having sex with the woman -- played by his wife Behati Prinsloo.
The Rape, Abuse Incest National Network is pissed about the happy ending, telling TMZ ... "no one should ever confuse the criminal act of stalking with romance." The vid also got low marks from
Lyrics like, "Baby, I'm preying on you tonight/Hunt you down eat you alive" ... probably don't help matters. Then again, plenty of people are praising the video as "art."
So we gotta ask ...

I Wish Evel Dick Stayed In Game
... After HIV Diagnosis
10/1/2014 11:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
One of "Evel Dick" Donato's former "Big Brother" housemates tells TMZ ... she wishes Dick would have STAYED in the BB house after learning he was HIV positive -- but Dick says he didn't have a choice.
Donato -- who won BB in 2007 and then rejoined the cast in 2011 -- left the show very early into Season 13 when he was informed by producers that blood tests showed he had HIV.
We spoke with Rachel Reilly -- who was competing in the house at the time -- who tells us she wishes Donato would have stayed in the game.
"If he had a meeting with everyone it would have been a way to give the disease a voice," Reilly said ... "It's reality TV."
She adds, "I think it's cool he is talking about it 3 years later and I hope this changes people's lives. I think it's brave of him."
We also spoke with Evel Dick on "TMZ Live" moments ago ... who told us he didn't get a choice to stay in the game -- producers told him he had to leave.
But he also says he wasn't ready to go public with the information anyway ... "This was the most shocking news I've ever been told. I needed time to digest."
Donato says it's already destroyed him in one way -- financially.
