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.

The title of this article is wrong - alcohol was a factor for Sheen! He was DRINKING and he is a major addict in every way you can be one - alcohol, drugs, sex. Some people get really mean and nasty when they drink - Sheen is one of them! He should have had NO alcohol in his system. None to not be a contributor to this sad incident.

the truth hurts huh    

I wonder what made her recant her story. Doesn't necessarily mean it didn't happen .... just that she - for some reason - decided not to stick with it. There could be many reasons ....... when high-powered attorneys and $$$$ are involved - there can be major threats made to certain parties. Who do you think has the upper hand here? Look what he did to Denise Richards ..... PUBLICLY!!!!

Poor Charlie! He sure knows how to pick 'em!!

And WHY is everyone assuming Charlie IS the guilty one? is blood alcohol wasn't that high; maybe he had a nice mimosa for Christmas breakfast (which a lot of people have that or even a bloody mary); his wife must've started drinking REAL early!!

The guy has gotten his act together and I believe has never been arrested for domestic violence. Stupidity - yes; drunkenness - yes; drugs - yes. But not domestic violence.

why do men marry women, especially hot women. they are exotic little pets that should have NO POWER, he has enough money to have the hottest woman on the planet. DO NOT MARRY THEM, if you must, make sure you have a donald trump marla maples prenup, $2mill max. even though she popped out the gold nugget , two is the best though, but still she only got 2.1million, and thats how it should be, women are wired from a young age to have things come to them , so as they get older they are flesh messes. the hotter the woman , the more the mess, you can vote hilary into office (basically she is a man) but do you want hilary or nancy pellosi to captian a nucleur sub? no no no, women are for having babies, give them more to do and they disinegrate

Radaronline has a new client (think Kate Gosselin and her PR team) in Brooke Mueller. They are spinning for her and failing to mention that Mommy was drunk on Xmas morning. She recanted because Charlie's team "forced" her. Blah, blah, blah. She's been planning to divorce him for weeks and has been snooping around his money accounts. She's ALL about the MONEY! ROL is ALL about getting PAID from the PR peeps.

Keena: FYI - the allegations Denise Richards brought against him proved FALSE. There is NO SPIN going on here. During that whole time Richards was slamming him, he proved to be a gentleman and never said anything against HER until it got to a point where her accusations were becoming ridiculous and harmful to their children.

I am SOOOO amazed that so many people on here know so much about Charie Sheen's personal life!! And that he was out partying and drinking Christmas Eve - like no one else in the country was that night - ie family gatherings.

Assuming HE was the one drunk - read the tox reports, morons! SHE was the one drunk, not him.

Classy!!! And he is allowed to father children. Can we just give him a vasectomy so he can't embarrass any more kids.

Flanders Fielding:

You are soooo wrong. Charlie is one of the highest paid actors on TV. NOTHING his wife makes can equal his income past, present or future.

I like Charlie Sheen as an actor; I really do. However all this drama is becoming tiresome. It's his life, but I would think he would get tired of the constant stress and strain. It doesn't matter who he is with there is always drama and you know what the common denominator is? Charlie Sheen. If he didn't have children I probably wouldn't care but he does. For their sakes I hope he can get some help, stop hooking up with these weird women and lead a somewhat normal life.

Is Tom # 9 really Denise Richards?!!

Charlie loves his blonde drama queens in real life. His wife called the cops on him because she's a ditzy party drunk who can't hold her booze. As long as his funny show stays on the air, I've got no problems. That show is the most hilarious well written show on tv. Hands down.

FYI - For all those assuming Charlie was in front of a judge - according to the paper this morning, he is STILL in jail until Monday. So don't assume his money got him in front of a judge asap. Where does it say in this article he was in front of a judge already? Also - a lot of courts have "holiday court" which means there is some judge on duty to arraign people. Since this was in Colorado - the State that messes up just about EVERY high profile case (Jon Benet Ramsey, people!), my guess no judge was on duty over the holiday.
