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.

I have to say I have never, from day one, liked that show 2 1/2 men! I never felt it was funny, creative,or artistic in any sense! I don't get its appeal for anyone at all to watch it, I can say I have never seen more than two or three total episodes since it began and I am happy I never wated my time on it. having said that I don't hold any hate for most people and I don't for Charlie,I wish him to get help and come through this whatever it is that has ruined his life? I would feel the same whether a person is of the left, or the right politically, its always awful to see someone throw their life away slowely? we should all wish the best for both Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen?

We love the show Charlie!! Get well and keep the show running. Men dont need, "Dancing With The Stars, Home Makeover, or the Biggest Loser to name a few chick shows on T.V. This is one of the only shows a MAN can enjoy as a MAN!

The poor man is spriraling downhill at an extremely more frequent, and SERIOUS level.

The way he's going, he's not long for this Earth.

He needs to repent.

He needs Jesus.

Just my 2 cents.

Hey CBS....Give your man another raise...he's out getting you a ratings boost...he knows his show has gone from bad to worse. Your writers have Alan irresponsibly burning down a house. Masturbating everywhere in his brothers place, and for some reason...is still unable to get his own apartment after 7 years? Meanwhile his alcoholic womanizing brother Charlie is lusting after his new girls 20 year old porn daughter.
The kid is no longer cute or funny so ya just write him out as much as possible...but ya cant completely because he represents the 1/2.
I simply cant wait for next weeks absurd episode... and thanks to Sheen and his latest activities, I'm sure you'll have even more viewers. People like a good train wreck.
On the other hand, they might just be getting tired of this nonsense and move on.

When a high profile celebrity starts speaking out about 911 truth (and the government and medias refusal to even consider an independent investigation)strange things happen. When he chose the hospital, he entered the mental illness zone. No drugs were found on the scene -- maybe in his drink?

What a waste, look at someone like Michael J Fox who suffers from Parkinsons and would probably trade places with that idiot in a minute for a chance of a normal life with his wife and kids. Charlie Sheen will pay dearly for this in his next life which will be eternal. Play now Charlie cause I give you about 5 yrs and your done. Praying for your souljaboy

Sounds like a cocaine/crack user: anger, agitation, grandios thoughts,
invincibility, insomnia, nudity, paranoia, funky body odor,
hallucinations mixed or diluted with PCP (angel dust), declares self
as the victim, extreme depression after high, heighten sexual
appetite, immaturity, shrinking bank accounts, gets drunk (boosts the
cocaine effects), steals, lies, lies and more lies.

Unfortunately, once the brain chemistry has been altered -- there's no
turning back.

I think people are being too hard on Charlie. He has a disease, he is sick and he needs help. I was an alcoholic, still am I just don't drink anymore, my point is, is that if everyone just gave up on me I probably wouldn't be here today. Alcoholism and substance abuse is a disease not a choice.

I think I recognize this behavior because I lived with someone who was the same way. If he doesn't have bipolar mania, that he's trying to treat with drugs and alcohol, I'd be amazed. Those that love him need to contact a professional - maybe with the court's assistance. Whether he likes it or not. If he has a serious mental illness, it will only progress and it can't be treated with tough love or AA or NA. The alcohol/drug abuse/self-destructive behavior can't be treated by rehab if it's a symptom of another problem that needs medication. Love ya, Charlie!!!!

EMOTIONALLY DISTURBED"? Since when did the LEO's get a Doctorate in psychiatric's? When we are altered by alcohol or drugs our emotions are skewed. Does this mean that all intoxicated individuals should be publicly castrated and coined mentally unstable. This guy is a target, envied for his salary and for some his life style ,most likely anything out of the norm(whatever that is)becomes news worthy. If he were to drop a bloody stool it would be front page news in Variety mag. Here we are 7 days from an election, an election most have been waiting for almost 9 months and this is the fluff they want you to eat. Apparently an in depth look into the challengers is to much work, easier to copy a police log than do actual reporting.

Here we go again, if your rich and white the skys the limit. Cris Brown was treated so bad by the media , rag magazines, and all the talk shows, They just about end his career.Rapper T.T. was on probation just like Charlie Sheen,And was caught with weed in is car, back to jail for 11 months.Football player shot him self with is own gun gets 3yrs in jail.The diffrence these guys are black. Sheen has already gotten perks, Hotel wont file charges, And a private plain is waiting to fly him back home to the city of angels. Something is wrong with this pictures. When are the Judges going to stop cradling these drug addicts. Sheen put a knife to the throat of is wife treaten to kill her ,He still kept his show and went home.To do what he does best have a drink.Guess he is above the law, and he happens to be a white man with money and connections.
