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.

Since when is alcohol considered a medication. He overdosed on booze just as he always has. Let's start calling these episodes of all these hollywood losers what it is "addiction".

But you won't be politically correct.

I mentioned to my mom how his acting is horrible this season. It's like he's all over the place and talking fast. I have a nephew who is an addict (thankfully clean now) and the comments that some of you have made are horrible. Give him a chance to straighten his life out. As much as I would miss Two and A Half Men and feel for the others on the show (who are absolutely hilarious actors/actresses), maybe they do need to halt production to give him a chance to get help. I do wish him the best and his family, because they're going through hell having to see what it happening to their loved one.

gee, if you think he needs to be punished, why not just make him watch his own show? I know even a glimpse of it is enough to make me want to gouge my own eyes out...

That comment about last night's episode being disgusting is true. The comedy is usually wry and witty, and while it's adult-oriented, it is usually clever and truly funny, not so blatantly gross.

Last night's ep was FUNNY. and over 13M people watched it. So use your remote if you don't like it and go sit in the corner with your rosary beads and watch DWTS.

come on, sheen, you gotta man-up and get your **** straightened out... here's what you need to do, bro: have that skanky french maid of yours pitch out ALL the booze... just for a couple months or so. better yet, just tell her to hide it until you've stabilized and quieted down those damn demons and then smack her around one night until she hauls out the cache of medicine. she's got it coming anyway, who's she to go around hiding your hooch, anyway?! screwy broads. so, during your TEMPORARY booze vacay, get into the gym and sweat that liver back into fighting shape and ready for the next round. get that hot little trainer broad to push and motivate you, and remember, if she get's a little too 'bossy cow', wait until you're working the heavy bag and "accidentally" let a hard hook fly and sucker punch that pixie right in the ovaries... ha HA HA! makes me laugh just thinking about it, dude! once all this nonense blows over, you'll be back in business, bud fox!

Being Rich and Famous does not at all give you the right to act like a drug addicted felon who is so spoiled you can do all. Why doesn't he give his money to all the charities he can think of instead of just some. He obviously has to much money left over to be binge drinking and paying or is he just getting woment to be with him. He has children and ex wives and a messed up life. He def. needs a shrink and def.` needs help before he gets into more trouble than he already is. I realy am not one who fears for his life, hes getting the attention he is wanting just by doing these irrational acts. so hes irrational and needs help. He needs a 24 hour security gaurd, one who will not let him get into trouble.

What a waist of a good man. He is funny and has the world by the balls. I would love to be in his position. You keep it up Charlie and you will not have to worry about a thing in the world you will be dead. To much money and not enough sense. Wake up before it's to late and they are putting you six feet under. I know someone like him and I kept telling him don't drink and drive but you can't tell these arragent people that have it all they know it all. Well this person bought a motorcycle got drunk and killed this women, leaving behind two children. He keeps this **** up and something bad will happen,just hope he is by himself.

The show is racey not because of him, he doesn't write it, but, because CBS has removed it sensorship, YES REMOVED IT, soooooooooooo now they can write about anything and it is fine, Do I agree?????????? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, but with that being said I think they are so far keeping it pg13. ANd I give them props for that.
