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.

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.

You know, it's so easy to judge people who are alcoholics. OBVIOUSLY, he is an alcoholic, whether he has admitted it or not. I am a recovering alcoholic, and I know that it's not easy to turn away from the "intoxicating" effects of alcohol or drugs if that's the case. As well, it has to be difficult to be in the public eye while you try to battle this demon (even when his character calls for it.) I know he has not shown the best of himself, but I think that the best is there.

Why do the producers keep spoiling this guy?

How about sending him, Lindsay Lohan, and Paris Hilton off to some island where they can never get out..they have been given the keys to fortune and "lost" them

Charlie sheen has a mental disorder, its always been obvious to the trained eye, a long history of drugs and alchohol abuse, its comes from his father Martin Sheen, who demonstates his mental dosrder just by watching his blind and stupid maniacal loyalty to a political party, < in his case a nutwing lefty > Mental problems can and have activated themselves during all kinds of periods of a patients life. not all people with mental problems have them from birth, the sheens , whether you think they are good actors or not are a clear example of this, if your really look at them tho you can alsmost see the mental imbalance, they both look very similar, now answer me this : If you were traveling down a dark road late at nite near a mental institution in say,, Nebrasksa or Indiana,,, and heard on the radio that one is on the loose, then you ran into a not famous,,Martin sheen,, what would you think???

Charlie grow up. What a jerk. Maybe they sould put you and Lindsay in the same jail cell. I really hate to see you waste your life like this. I don't even feel sorry for you. They should change the name of your show to one and half men and a drunk.

Why did the publicist bother to even make such a horsefeather statement about 'reation to a pill he'd taken.' Everyone knows what a P.O.S. he's become, moreover, always been. Sorry his x and kids were even in the same hotel with him and his hooker. Bigger shame is getting millions per episode for Two and half men..I used to love it but it's even gotten far too vulgar. He's a trashy s***bag anymore and when he recognizes that fact, perhaps he'll finally clean up his act. I adore humor in most forms but not at that expense.

I have watched Two and a Half Men since it started but
latelely it has gotten so disgusting and full of sex that I will
not watch it again. Last nights episode showing his brother
masturbating was awful. It's sickening how the writers are so
consumed with sex. They are just as disturbed as the actors.
CBS needs to cancel this program or hire new writers.

As for Charlie Sheen: When is this guy ever sober enough to do his acting? I guess that's why a lot of times he has been portrayed as drinking on his show. He really is and it's part of the act.
