Charlie Sheen Hospitalized After Drinking Binge

10/26/2010 10:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen was hospitalized early this morning after a drinking binge that ended with Charlie allegedly trashing his NYC hotel room.

0823_charlie_sheen_tmz_ex
New York City police were called by security at The Plaza Hotel, who reported a disturbance in Charlie's suite.  When cops entered just after 2 AM, they found Charlie drunk and naked.  Chairs had been thrown around the room and a chandelier was damaged.

We're told an unidentified woman in the room told cops Charlie flew into such a rage that she locked herself in the bathroom and called security.  There's also a report out that Charlie accused the woman of stealing his wallet.

Police sources say Charlie went voluntarily and that Charlie was "intoxicated, irrational" and "emotionally disturbed." Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Charlie was "emotionally disturbed" and they gave him a choice -- go to the hospital or jail.  Charlie chose option 1.

Sources who have spent time with Charlie recently say he's been "a tortured soul for months" and his friends openly talked about how they feared for his life.  Another source very close to Charlie echoed the fear that Charlie's most recent downturn could end tragically.

Charlie's rep just put out a statement that the actor was hospitalized after suffering an allergic reaction to medication ... though the information conflicts with what TMZ has confirmed ... that drinking was a factor.

"Two and a Half Men" is on hiatus this week and Charlie isn't due back on the set until next Tuesday.  We're told producers have a jet ready in NYC to fly Charlie home today.

Sources connected with the actor tell us he'll fly into L.A. this evening and he'll go right home.  Sheen won't be staying at Promises in Malibu -- where he's stayed on and off since earlier this year.

People connected with the show tell us ... Charlie doesn't think he needs to go back to rehab, even though some of his friends and associates tell us the situation is pretty desperate.

Cops did not find any evidence of drug use in Charlie Sheen's NY hotel room early this morning ... this according to law enforcement sources.

Yet again we reward these spoiled Hollywood stars with a jet plane back to Hollywood. He is a drunk, abuser and needs help before he dies. Personally, I am tired of all this bad behavior. It is not cute, and he is messing with other peoples lives. Why is he so obcessed with hookers. He should never have gotten marry if this is what he prefers. And why does he need threesomes and freaky sex. It takes a real man to make love to one woman and be able to perform without all these circus tricks. If this is what he wants he needs to get a divorce. But I understand his wife is a sex freak too. LOL. Oh well. Keep it up Charlie until your luck runs out or your penis falls off.

why am I not surprised!!! lets see 1 million an episode, adorable children. a steady job, can go anywhere and do anything he wants and it appears he always ends up in situations like this. Allergic reaction to medication? what a JOKE!! he is an alcoholic, substance abuser and totally out of control his whole life. His life has been one tabloid story after another. The girl he was with is the lucky one, locking herself in the bathroom was a smart move, he most likley would have hurt her. Who cares what happens to him anyway!!! get rid of his stupid tv show and cbs then can hire back AJ Cook for criminal minds. He is a big waste of money. I feel bad for his parents, good people who have worried enough about him. Spoiled, rich and entitled is one sure way to end your life early.

I really wish someone would get Charlie the help he needs. An alcoholic can do things no one else would even think of and I am afraid it will cost him his life. His Father could jump in and help him, but I don't hear his name mentioned often.

CBS needs to cancel Two and a half Men. Last night's episode was way too racy. It was really discusting. The show is no longer funny. And Charlie needs a rest and lots of psychiatric help.

I dont get Hollywood. As long as his show gets high ratings it is ok to act like a fool. He is a cheater, abuser, sex addict, and ahoholic. Just think his daughters are going to grow up and see this sex freak. I have no doubt they will be in trouble too. And his rep says it is an allergic reaction. Come on give us a break. We are not stupid. He was naked, drunk, in the room with a hooker who probally stole his wallet. LOL It is what he deserves. LOl

We see it all the time... those who seem to have it all, have nothing at all. I live across from a beautiful park where I see people laughing, smiling and playing with their dogs and children. Happiness, is hard work made easy because of our purpose in life, far too many in the entertainment world seem to have no purpose.

In spite of the lucrative contract offered to "Jake," I think I'd do what I could to get him off "Two-and-a-Half Men." There must be better environments he could be in.
