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.

Brooke Mueller, Charlie Sheen

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.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE TRUTH IS..YOU HAVE TWO DRUNKS/PAST DRUG USERS AND MAYBE PRESENTLY CLAIMING OR "HE SAID SHE SAID" ACCUSATIONS ARE DISCUSTING. HOWEVER, IT IS TOO BAD THAT THEIR EXISTING SITUATION HAD TO BE PUT OUT TO THE WHOLE WORLD..IT SURE WOULDN'T HAVE IF IT WAS A 30k PER YEAR PERSON..

I LOVE CHARLIE. I HAVE SAID A FEW PRAYERS FOR HIM WITH REGARDS TO HIM KICKING HIS DRUG ADDICTIONS..SO HE LIKED SEX AND DID IT WITH A PROSTITUTE, BIG DEAL!! HELL, MY HUSBAND DID IT. AND IT DIDN'T GET PUT IN THE PAPER!

AS FAR AS THE WIFE..SHE IS IN HIS LEAGUE WITH REGARDS TO DRINKING AND DRUGS SO HER WORD DOESN'T CUT THE MUSTARD WITH ME.

I JUST WANT CHARLIE TO STAY STRONG, STAY OFF THE DRUGS, AND CONTINUE HIS CAREER ON TV OF TWO AND ONE HALF MEN/WHICH I NEVER MISS..I AM 76 YEARS OLD!!

WHEN I THINK OF WHAT I GAVE UP, PUT UP WITH, TOLERATED TO GIVE MY CHILDREN A HAPPY LIFE, I WONDER WHY PEOPLE WITH LOTS OF MONEY CAN'T DO THE SAME..

All your base are belong to us    

People are giving this guy a pass. And he has a history of verbal abuse and violent threats.

If it was Kobe or such, many people would be ALL OVER this.

Even in this photo, the wife looks like she is having a fit, and a CONCERNED Sheen is looking at her as though, "What's up with you?"

Clearly this is to portray her in a bad light and to portray him in a good light. This, even when the knife was found with the blade out in his bag.

Higher truths    

To 91:
So Mueller has a record too> bad or Sheen since he has had probs with addictions. Did he marry her cause she was pregnant?

Something stinks about this whole thing. Love the photos of her being out and about in Aspen after wards, all smiles. Guess she wanted a divorce and some money. Prenups suck, eh?

When Sheen steeped out about 911 we all knew he'd bring some unwanted trouble on himself. Had to be a woman.

Charlie get a divorce, get some quiet time and wait a long while before getting remarried and NO don't go back to the hookers that would discredit you with the 911- movement.

91. OMG people!!!
It doesn't take a genius to see "why" Brooke is scrambling...She has quite the CRIMINAL history herself...Her previous convictions for DUI and FELONY cocaine possession will not allow this incident to play out in her favor, as it speaks volumes about HER character...

Face it folks, Brooke just "had to file that report" because she was pathetically attempting to cause problems for Charlie, and gain leverage in this "divorce" she wanted badly enough to create a drunken scene over...Her actions speak volumes about her motives...

The incident was bad enough, but for Brooke to run out and hire Yale "OJ is innocent" Galanter, she KNOWS she's in serious hot water...

Okay, first off, she did NOT sound upset on that 911 call. She sounded drunk, and all I remember of the call is "I want to file a report" over and over again. And they were about to get divorced, correct? Sounds as if she just made it up to file a report and come out good in the divorce. Now, if he held that pocket knife to her throat as stated, why would he be stupid enough to put it back in his bag in a "locked open position"? If he was going to do that, why not close it and put it in? Ok Brooke, if you are looking to make evidence please oh please watch a crime movie or crime show. Who knows for sure what happened, but come on, doesn't it all sound fishy?

You both need to sober up & clean up your acts, for those twins, plus Charlie has 3 other kids to take care of too. Brooke did you ever think of talking with Denise Richards on what married life with Charlie would be like????????? GROW UP !!!!!!!
