Charlie Sheen's Wife in Rehab

2/16/2010 8:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen's Wife in RehabIn what could be a blow to the prosecution's case against Charlie Sheen, Brooke Mueller is now in rehab for substance abuse ... TMZ has confirmed.

The criminal case in Aspen comes down to Charlie's word against Brooke's -- she claims he put a knife to her throat and threatened her life. He denies it.

As we first reported, Brooke had been drinking before she called 911 and that could affect her credibility.

Now we've learned Brooke checked into The Canyon rehab facility in Malibu last Tuesday -- the day after Charlie's arraignment on felony and misdemeanor charges. If Brooke struggled with substance abuse around the Christmas Day incident, it could severely impact her credibility.

TMZ could not reach Brooke's attorney for comment.

Take those kids from her she doesn't deserve to be a mother . They are in danger with a addict like her but of course she is rich and famous they will not do nothing about, being rich and famous is different if one of us do the same thing we will be in jail and our kids taking from us .....those children are in danger .

where are the pictures of her battered face or bruises? ryhiana's pictures were posted right away. Harvey has such disdain for Chris Brown, the 19yr old with no know prior history of physical abuse, but not many harsh words for Charlie Sheen, grown ass man with proven history of physical abuse with several women. How fair is that?

I am sorry that she has found herself in this situation. An addiction is a chemical change that takes place in the body and it is very hard to reverse. I wish her luck.

Ummm.....I'm not understanding all the hate. Here is a women in an abusive relationship with a substance abuse problem and people are attacking her without sympathy. How is this different from other abuse cases?

she flat out lied about this and is now scared because the DA has said he would prosecute if found to be a false statement.she knows she will go to jail and doesnt like it so is using this as a way of getting herself out of trouble.any lawyer including harvey will tell yah if you get in trouble for an alcohol related incident the best way to handle it and get sympathy is to go to rehab.oldest trick in the book.

Carlos Estevez = big mess. At least his brother Emilio had the good sense to stop after one crazy celebrity wife.

I use to read these articles, and wish I had a place in Aspen, CO!! But if this is the kind of territory that comes along, forget it.

Just proves, money doesn't buy happiness.

Thisis not about whether Brooke is a substance abuser or even has a problem with alcohol or drugs, it is all about the old ploy when the abusive spouse or abuser wants to play the balme game so his actions or abuse issues are not looked at. Charlie Sheen has a huge problem as an abuser, this is not the first time he has threatened a woman, he actually cut one woman, threatened to kill a couple and said he could kil them and no one would know he did it, he had the people that could do the job, the cops were in his pocket, What more do you need, I would hate for this to trun out like the lady that wanted the restarining order and was killed the other day after the judge neded to look into it further. Sheen is clearly an abuser, has a huge problem and needs some help like jail, get him off the street so no one gets killed. He mistakenly thinks he is above the lawy.

HUMMINGBIRD

Hummingbirds are birds comprising the family Trochilidae. They are among the smallest of birds, and include the smallest extant bird species, the Bee Hummingbirds. They can hover in mid-air by rapidly flapping their wings 12–90 times per second (depending on the species). They can also fly backwards, and are the only group of birds able to do so. Their English name derives from the characteristic hum made by their rapid wing beats. They can fly at speeds exceeding 15 m/s (54 km/h, 34 mi/h).

Hummingbirds drink nectar, a sweet liquid inside flowers. Like bees, they are able to access the amount of sugar in the nectar they eat; they reject flower types that produce nectar that is less than 10% sugar and prefer those whose sugar content is stronger. Nectar is a poor source of nutrients, so hummingbirds meet their needs for protein, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, etc. by preying on insects and spiders, especially when feeding young.

With the exception of insects, hummingbirds while in flight have the highest metabolism of all animals, a necessity in order to support the rapid beating of their wings. Their heart rate can reach as high as 1,260 beats per minute, a rate once measured in a Blue-throated Hummingbird. They also consume more than their own weight in nectar each day, and to do so they must visit hundreds of flowers daily. Hummingbirds are continuously hours away from starving to death, and are able to store just enough energy to survive overnight.
