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.

Give Charlie another chance..he is sick etc. Charlie has had many chances, many times in rehab, many times forgiven, yet he continues to bounce back giving himself yet another chance for failure as a husband and a father. Charlie will eventually get so far down that the show will be cancelled. Who do I feel sorry for, not Charlie he has not yet faced the fact that he has a problem..
I feel sorry for the cast and the many other people on the show that keeps it running, the crew of people who work hard from the cable pullers to the make-up and hair people, the camera people, the script writers to name a few who could possibly be out of work because dear ol' Charlie has a problem and he could care less about these people..As for his ratings.. good by Charlie it was a good run but I'm dun with you. God help the people who put you there and worked so hard to keep you there because you sure don't care about them.

Please stop blaming Liberals. We aren't the cause of his problems. Being a liberal is not a bad thing. It has to do with liberation and freedom. We had to live through George B and his dad. Rome wasn't built in a day. Facts are facts.
Anyway, Charlie Sheen is a druggie, alcoholic, beater of women, and yet he makes one million an episode. That means people watch the show. He's either going to die an early death. Maybe, that's what he wants. There are so many people in the world who are a lot more talented and more deserving. I have more talent in my pinkie than he has in his whole body. Yeah, I was going to say something nasty, but I decided maybe not.

Oh,he is the half man part of the show! What a waste of money paying this loser. Too bad for the others on the show, after the ratings go way down, the show will be canceled. One million an episode. The producers and directors of the show must be on drugs and alcohol too. I know Martin is wishing he had a vasectomy before this creep was born.

Charlie Sheen is a sleeze. And not even a good-looking sleeze. I'm tired of seeing his name in the headlines. I see them, but I don't read the stories.

So, he is proving despite his world of talent that he is human! We all have monsters in our lives but and we all deal with them differently. If Charlie were Charlie Smith, no one would give a damn. That's life!

HEY YOU %$#^heads, we all experience problems were we are not in the best emotional state of mind, just because this $%^&head happens to be a person in the lime light does not mean we as a nation need to criticize and or demolish because of his state of mind is not there. prephaps the girl did steal his wallet after all he is a trick and her a whore, presonally i would have stole his wallet if i was a whore.

If his father does not get him into re-hab then his destination is death and his children will never understand what haunted him to kill himself. So let him get what he wants and realize he is so unhappy with his life that all the money in the world will make him happy..Mom and Dad do something for him or lose him.
