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.

It never fails. The more controversal an actor is, the more famous (and wealthy) they become. His "camp" should just fess up and admit that Sheen has a drug and alcohol problem. Anyone can see through their lie!

The problem is that Hollywood isn't throwing enough money at him. Maybe he needs $10 mil an episode. What fools.

WE CAN ALL POST OUR OPINIONS BUT WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO IT..NOBODY KNOWS WHAT'S REALLY GOING ON IN CHARLIE'S MIND OR IN HIS FAMILY'S. WE CAN BE JUDGEMENTAL BUT THE TRUTH IS...HE'S WASTING HIS LIFE..HURTING HIS CARREER..EMBARRASSING HIS FAMILY AND NOT SETTING A VERY GOOD EXAMPLE OR HIS KIDS. I LOVE 2 1/2 MEN AND IT'S TOO BAD FOR THE OTHER CAST MEMBERS.

My husband and I (after 30 years of working) are now both unemployed and struggling with the economy. We are looking for jobs in our 60's which is laughable for 8.00/hr, but whatever we have to do we will do. Somebody tell these actors and actresses to live in the "real" world just for a month. You know clip coupons, pick up dog do do in the back yard, clean the toilet and wonder how you are going to pay the bills. I know i can't afford going to movies anymore. I think now I don't even need to, between Lindsy, Mel and Charlie there seems to be free entertainment in the news! Stop feeling sorry for yourselves, get help and grow up!

What I think Charlie's camp meant to say is that his girlfriend had an allergic reaction to Charlie's drinking, which was coaberrated by all the black and blue bumps on her face.

Obviously he has some serious issues going on. He may feel that drinking alcohol is a solution OR it simply makes him forget those things that ARE and probably always HAVE tormented him mentally. Who knows? Unfortunately drinking alcohol brings out the worst in him. It's obviously a mental thing. Pampering him is not the answer. He needs some serious help before it's too late. Who knows? Maybe he "secretly" wants to end it all. He needs help fast!

I met Charley once at a strip club in hollywood VERY NICE GUY he bought my friend and I a chair dance and a couple of beers after we thanked him he said "it's the least I can do guys I gonna take all of the chicks to my corner table and keep em there the rest of the night" and thats what he did!

I'm sure his children will be proud. Time to grow up Charlie and realize your actions hurt more than just yourself.

You go Charlie! Dealing with STRESS from family life, and women is BRUTAL right now. Especially when it comes to the women who are "TOO SORRY TO WORK, AND TOO NERVOUS TO STEAL". Basically, all they want to do is to "LEECH A LIVING" from you. Just remember, as we get older, we need to do things with more moderation. Don't let all the Leeches bring you down. Your TV show is the BEST, and the people who don't agree are just JEALOUS. They have a TV remote, they can change the channel if they don't want to see it. Keep up the good work. Good Luck. MB
