Judge to Charlie Sheen: Bring Your Butt to Court

1/7/2010 5:34 PM PST
Charlie Sheen can't just pick up the phone and make his domestic violence case go away -- a Colorado judge is demanding that the actor attend his next hearing live and in person.

Sheen had requested to participate in the Feb. 8 hearing by phone -- but today, the judge rejected his request, meaning Sheen will have to go back to Aspen to face allegations he threatened his wife with a knife on Christmas Day.

Sheen has denied the accusations -- and lawyers for both Sheen and his wife Brooke Mueller have stated that the couple wants to reconcile.
