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.

Just another, of many, hollywood losers, over paid, over publisized, druggies. It's a sad shame that he and recent loser wife had to go and bring those twins into the world. For what? For this? No child deserves such aweful parents.

Charlie Sheen is and has been totally out of control for a long time. It has nothing to do with the medications he takes. He is a pot head over paid sexist that has the world at his finger tips, and is to stupid to realize that most guys would give anything to be in his professional shoes. As for his TV show,
it gets more disgusting each week with its vulgar material. Last nights show was utterly disgusting. What happened to TV decency? I think our society is getting sicker each and every year anymore. Doesn't anyone care what they shopw on TV anymore?Two and a Half Men needs to be moved to "LATE NIGHT".

This guy is a male version of Lyndsey Lohan and people need to see him for what he is. He's an out of control addict that needs help, not everyone enabling him.

Thank you Charlie,
You have helped many people today to stop and remember. I have 7874 days, by God's grace, and your actions, that I must stay away from scotch, one day at a time. You have been blessed Charlie by being a son, brother, father....It matters not if one is rich or poor when under the control of anything we cannot fight against. I will be praying for the people that love you so much, family & friends. Call me, Charlie, I have no agenda. I do have the same days of madness, hurting those that loved me the most, on my stage in life. Your stage has helped me today to stay away. I pray your stage in life tomorrow will help me because you can & will be the son, brother, husband & father that you were meant to be. I know there will be a day when I do not get back into the madness because I will have seen what a good person you are on the stage of life. It is simply there for you, Charlie
