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 go Charley keep up the crasy life, at least some one can enjoy what they have, you make your own future not anyone else, Good show crasy actors.
After the election it won't matter any more, the middle class will totally disappear and the rich and Gop will rule and take this country down the rest of way that the Bush and Channey gang started. So for all the old people that vote in the GOP just remember that medicare and social security will be gone and it was the Democrats that care for the country not the rich nd greedy bunch that is taking over . Hang on folks its going to get worse in the days ahead and remember The Demoracts at least have plans, you do not hear any plans or commitment from the Right, just make the rich richer and the rest of us can serve the as their slaves .................as all of the remaining jobs here get shipped over seas to the rest of the world.

I couldn't of said it better as HB did
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. It's too bad that a show that starred out so good should turned out so trashie. Last night was uncalled for. It started to make sense when Sheen got engaged but I guess on TV and in real life trash is trash. I will not be watching any more, you see nothing from this show but trash.

The Show is funny. Who cares what he does off camera. I'm not his mother or wife. He's just a real Version of his character, Charlie Harper. Enjoy the show and let his psychiatrist worry about the rest.

Charlie is lucky to be white. If he were black he would have been tessored and sent to jail without being given those options.

Its way too bad that our young somethings have to put up with this kind of "scuzz" on TV--- WHY do they want this emotionally challenged person on their radar--- he really does need help where they lock him in a room and straight jacket him.

I feel sorry for Charlie. He had so much potential. His show has gotten totally out of control and nasty. I used to love his show but now think it's disgusting. I hope he gets the help he needs before it's too late. I always thought his brother was a much better actor anyway. He's the one that got a bum rap.

two and a half men, is a funny show but charlie sheen is really a messed up person. sometimes his brother, on the show, is funnier than he is and even better. but charlie sheen is a spoiled brat with money to burn and is not a responsible person, at all. he will end up in a bad place if he doesn't get help now. i feel sorry for his kids, for some day they will be in the same place if they follow in his footsteps. he had no business having children.

Sheen is always drinking in the show two and a half men. I thought that his drinking was a part of the script. Now I see that the drinking has to do with the fact that Charlie is an addict. My comments are on a man whose story appears in this article I'm commenting on. I do not really know if Charlie drinks in the show or just pretends to drink bear but is really drinking water.
