Alcohol a Factor ...

But Not for Charlie Sheen

12/26/2009 4:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Brooke Mueller was legally drunk when she called 911 on Charlie Sheen ... and, we've learned, Brooke has fessed up that her allegation was phony.

Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller
Sources say authorities gave both Charlie and Brooke blood alcohol tests. Brooke registered a .13 while Charlie registered a .04. By the way, the 911 call came in at 8:34 AM on Christmas day.

We're also told Brooke recanted her story to a female officer just before the bail hearing, telling the cop she was drunk when she made the 911 call. Nevertheless, law enforcement sources say police will still pursue the case -- at least for now.

We've also learned Sheen has hired well-known Colorado attorney Richard Cummins to represent him.

Cops responded to the 911 call, arrived at the home and Sheen was arrested after Brooke claimed he assaulted her. Charlie was booked for two felonies and one misdemeanor relating to domestic violence.

As we first reported, Sheen told law enforcement Brooke was the aggressor and he was just trying to defend himself.

Charlie's next court date is set for February 8.

I was quick to blame Charlie, now I feel bad after reading the article. The last thing he needs after everything he's been through is more trash, get rid of this rubbish fast, Charlie old boy!

What did anyone expect? He's been a violent, drunken misogynist for years -- what, he was going to be different with this wife? Unfortunately, women who've been assaulted recant all the time - they feel guilty, they want to believe it didn't happen, they're embarassed. Likely she's all of the above, and he's offered her money to shut up, which obviously isn't right. She may have been drunk, but that doesn't mean she wasn't telling the truth. Like anything, he's busy buying his way out of it as best he can. He's a spoiled train wreck - I just wish the chickens would finally come home to roost for him!

I seldom believe the recant statements, and it would seem that the cop doesn't either, because, the victims ALWAYS say they lied after the fact or otherwise try to back out of the charges...just about as soon as the attacker has a chance to get to them with his "routine." It goes the same way every time, and when they used to let the women back out, they would just get called back out again for something worse later and the attacker would use the fact that she said she lied before against her later, and she would back down faster because she felt like no one believed her anyway -- which made things even worse in some cases. Nope...I believe what she said while she was totally drunk and less likely to worry about what anyone thought of her.

I do feel sorry for Charlie Sheen, I really do!! Women who are both pissed off at the man in their life, or just pissed can get them arrested so easily for DV these days! Hell, it's becoming the latest revenge act by too many women - instances where they have actually hit themselves or their head against the wall or a hard object to get cuts and bruises so they can then call the cops and get him kicked out of his home are all too common these days! In saying that it angers me when women make false complaints because then when a genuine case comes up cops are more sceptical! The idea that women are defenceless, that they are the weaker sex and more likely to tell the truth is sooo outdated - we live in the 21st century and if you take a look around you this stuff is everywhere!!
If they can prove she made a false report then charges should be brought against her for filing a false report, for wasting police time, no doubt being a celeb female she'll only get a fine anyway which Charlie will probably end up paying for her lol!!!
Problem is, it seems the cops want to believe Charlie assaulted her and aren't taking anything else she says on board!! Be interesting to see won't it hm?! Sounds like Brooke is just as bad as his ex Denise Richards who doesn't mind jumping into bed with her best friends hubby - what a pair!!

Alcohol was a factor for Charlie as well as Brooke - he is supposed to be clean and sober for years, an alcoholic with a BAC of .04 at 8:30 in the morning is not a sober individual. He has obviously relpased and who knows how high his BAC was earlier. Sad that the media says alchohol was not a factor for Sheen - an alcoholic with his hx with any BAC at all is dangerous!!!

I like Charlie Sheen and I love his show. But if he raised a knife to a woman he is definitely wrong. If the woman stays with the man than she is also to blame but not for the man's actions, for her own actions which keep her in harm's way.

Been therr done that got the T-Shirt. Wife was drunk when she called 911 and I ended up in jail for the weekend + 1 day. They didn't take blood alchohool test. Later in front in judge she stated she over reacted. I'm all for dometstic violence laws but they hace to even out and not side on the woman all the time

The alcohol was probably consumed the evening before (xmas eve) and you can still be legally drunk from that until halfway through the next day at least because it takes that long to clear!! Her levels had obviously gone down, so just how pissed was she the night before lol?!
Sad thing in all of this is the kids, yet again and no doubt yet another mother who will try to use his kids against him! What kind of mother gets angry because he sang a song to one of his daughters on Xmas Day and what kind of woman starts a row demanding a divorce on Xmas Day of all days - she had to have had that planned anyway, but thanks to her the kids had a ruined first Xmas even though they won't remember it, Charlie spent Xmas in jail and from the comments here the public hates her!! Merry Xmas Brooke, perhaps next year you can just tell the kids daddy's dead and Santa doesn't exist!! Perhaps you've already got his replacemenr lined up just like Denise hm?!
