Charlie Sheen's Wife Wants to Reconcile

12/30/2009 12:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Brooke Mueller has lawyered up in case prosecutors decide to charge her with making a false police report, TMZ has learned. And Brooke and Charlie Sheen both want the court to modify the protective order so they can have contact with each other and try and save their marriage.

We've learned Brooke has hired famed criminal defense lawyer Yale Galanter, who represented OJ Simpson for years. Galanter tells TMZ Brooke did not recant the story she told cops on Christmas Day -- that Charlie allegedly held a knife to her throat and threatened to have her killed. But, Galanter says, Brooke did "minimize her story, like many wives in a similar situation do, when they realize their husband could go to jail."

Galanter tells TMZ he will file papers with the Aspen court this morning, asking the judge to allow Brooke and Charlie to resume contact with each other "so they can work on resolving the conflicts in their marriage." Galanter says Brooke and Charlie love each other very much, calling what happened on Xmas, "one bad night."

Galanter, who is currently in Aspen, says he was specifically hired to make sure prosecutors don't "overreact" and charge Brooke with lying to cops. He says, like many women who find themselves in similar circumstances, Brooke didn't realize that Charlie would be arrested after she called 911. So, Galanter says, Brooke soft-pedaled her story to a female cop hours after the 911 call but insists she did not recant.

How sad for Brooke, but only because she has hired what is unquestionably the BIGGEST DOUCHEBAG attorney (petulant Yale Galanter) to assist her. Galanter was more than merely an embarassment when he was in Las Vegas representing that murderer OJ Simpson - Galanter was actually predominately resp=onsible for OJ'S conviction since Motormouth Galanter made the ury (not to mention the Jusge) despise everything that spewed from his mouth both in and out of court.

Regrettably, any hope for Brooke to see that Sheen gets what he deserves has now been drastically dimished -- Yale Galanter is a "load", and his representation of Brooke will cost her dearly (and work to the advantage of that sleazeball Sheen).

"Galanter says, Brooke did "minimize her story, like many wives in a similar situation do, when they realize their husband could go to jail." That's a 100 percent trailer trash move, by lying to the cops.

Not sure which one of these 2 are more screwed up, but if you go back girlfriend, no bitching about what transpires from this pointforward. You're giving Sheen a douchebag permission slip.

She didn't realize that Charlie could go to jail, because she was TOO DRUNK to realize ANYTHING!
You can hear it during her 911 call - that girl was a freaking mess. Anything that will come out of that woman's - or her lawyer's - regarding this story should definitely be taken with a grain of salt.

OMG what is wrong with people?? First off, I'm not SURE I believe he held a knife to her throat. I don't DISbelieve it either. But if it honestly was THAT bad, that she had to call 911, then she's crazy to go back.

And this is coming from a huge Charlie Sheen fan!
I'm a woman, and I hate to say this, but I think she was drunk and emotional, and went a little overboard in her description of the events. Oh well, at this point it's a case of 'he-said she-said'.

Moving on.

Harvey you were right about 911 calls. If you listen to the call Brooke broke that little pattern that will be analyzed. When the operator asked what was her name and husbands name. She said Brooke and my husbands name is Charlie Sheen. Why not say Charlie. Seems odd to me.

Brooke, if you want to put your kids in DANGER and if you want to end up like NICOLE BROWN, GO BACK TO OLD CHARLIE! There are only a zillion other men out there who will love you and not threaten to kill you with a knife! AT LEAST, THINK OF YOUR KIDS!!!!

A relationship is ALL about trust, Only a fool could have a relationship with Brooke!
Especially now because you have to be concerned about the kids from both relationships it's only a matter of time before this happens again it's not a question of will it but rather when? I would not feel safe around a chick like that when she is drinking especially at 8:30 am. You will spend the rest of the relationship walking on eggshells not a good decision. Make the move to enrich your kids life by spending your time with them truly quality time without her. Sad but true.

OK....he supposedly puts a knife to your throat, yet you want to GO BACK TO HIM???? I don't know who is more insane here!
I think she was so drunk she did not know what she was saying...and Sheen is no angel, but now he may do prison time, and she wants him back. Thank God for my boring, behind the celebrity scenes life!

Wants to reconcile = I was drunk, emotional and lied. Now she is realizing the damage she's done and wants to take it back.

I am amazed and appalled at some of the quotes in this "article". If Brooke in fact, "minized her story" then she deserves whatever abuse she gets in the future. A woman who stays with a man who does what Brooke says Charlie did to her is an IDIOT. And to call what happened, if it is all true, is a little something more than "one bad night". They're both douchbags for being DRUNK ON CHRISTMAS MORNING with two small children in the house. They both deserve to lose those kids until they undergo alcholo rehab and anger management.

Wow - she's stupid whether drunk and sober! She should take some self defense classes if she plans to go back.
