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.

Wonder why this story doesn't surprise anyone? Could it be that we've all read it many times before?

If this comment can reach Charlie Sheen by any means...let me say this...
I am a HUGE FAN of yours....YOU really are a very talented and yes even a handsome guy, someone who look at you with just such an awe even before I am now my true self, that being my sexuality, but ...I have watched you and your career quite abit...I admit I haven't always watched everything you have done....but you are a human being, you are a person, I do truly understand in alot of ways what you are doing....the drinking and your divorce,the hookers and sleepin around, the anger you hold,and such...I did it for years (not the hookers)....because its what I wanted to do.....but at the same time....you really do have to have balance in most anything in life...I really do hope you get feeling better and I really do feel you have troubles that are very deep seeded...If you can at all face what you know is the problem......and if you can bring up what might seem to be bothering you from years and years of being in the industry you are in , your upbringing and home/personal life.... FREE YOURSELF FROM IT ALL....GIVE THE ANGER AND PAIN AND SORROW AWAY AND EMBRACE YOURSELF AS A PERSON, WHAT I SEE YOU DOING IS REALLY HORRIBLE AND TRAGICALLY COULD END YOUR EXISTENCE AND IT WOULD BE TRULY A LOSS.
Ten years ago or so I come to the fact I am attracted to men as well as still some women, and it really took almost a good year to come to terms with it....and it was a struggle and a b**ch really..but its ok....I met some men that showed me what things could be like....I dont use the term "gay" for myself....but I come to the fact I held onto anger for what people would do or say if this was ever known...my childhood wasnt terrible , but I did come to the fact that I wasnt allowed by my folks and such to be the person I truly am....I embrace this very much so now....I am very much the person I was meant to be and choose to be now at 36....
Charlie Sheen, You really are a big inspiration to me ...I remember seeing one of the first couple of films you were in , Lucas, and Three For The Road, and let me say...You just were so cool to me, you just have an amazing aura about you, I really look to be a man like you in the sense of just being YOU... and thats what you really need to do .....BE YOU!! WITHOUT ALL THE NONSENSE AND CHAOTIC STUFF THATS BEING BRUNG TO YOUR LIFE....
I really do hope you get yourself sorted and really become truly the self you are meant to be...happy and such...we all deserve good in life...we really all have to just allow it....EVEN YOU,CHARLIE ....TAKE CARE OF YOU...AND BE GOOD TO YOU.. A HUGE FAN ,....JEREMY

So what he got a little drunk again like WE ALL DO. OK the more holy than all thou might say different, but he can't be compared to the 22 year old bimbos that are corrupting our teens with their drugs, booze and lesbian affairs, involved in hit and runs and walking out of rehab. He just lost his wife and kids so I assume he had a hooker to break things up a bit. So what. Get back to work and stop slouching on company time!!!

Allergic reaction, eh? That's about as tired & transparent a job of spin-doctoring as they come.

As far as Sheen's behavior, one only needs to look as far as him being a proud & true believer that 9/11 was an inside job....because afterall: there's no bad PEOPLE on this planet - JUST BAD U.S. PRESIDENTS, right?

CHARLIE SHEEN IS AN OVERGROWN, OVERPAID, OVERPAMPERED CHILD & this latest example is proof-positive.

'Nuff said.....

Well America and much of the rest of the world loves the true to life protrayal of Charlie in "Two and A Half Men" so why are we always so shocked and amazed when we see him in the same role in real life. We stop laughing and start judging then for some reason. It is only the natural progression of our own decadant cravings that encourage and support such outrageous and destructive behavior.

You want a plot for the best Realty TV show? Between LiLo and Charlie Sheen, who will self destruct first? Of course they should be supplied with unlimited supply of the choicest drugs and alcohol. Any offers?

It amazing how the conservative readers attack Sheen for paying his way through life with the money he has earned. He is is own man and can do what he wants to do.... I like the guy and respect his work. I am glad he got to blow off some steam.

I am sure he rides the edge and I hope he bounces back from this but wishing him ill is nothing but using up your own karma so maybe you should live your life and stop judging others....

Rush Limbaugh was found to be a drug addict and you stuck with him because you loved his politics.... I stick with Sheen because he is one of my fellow humans on this earth...
