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 don't know if you can put someone in the hospital mental ward against their wishes. What's the point anyway? They have to want to work on their issues or it's just babysitting. Charlie sounds like a raging alcoholic with emotional, sexual and anger problems. He needs to realize that it's only going to get worse the longer he goes without help. And he is probably not far from death at this point if he does nothing to help himself. What a sad waste of what could be a really good life.

The show, 2 and a 1/2 men, is no longer funny. It is just cheap jokes about sex.
I think the writers, as well as Charlie Sheen, all need help. I used to watch the show, but now it is just boring and stupid. I will no longer watch.

Get his rear end into a long, long, long, term rehab. Some of the comments here are ok, but a few go too far. All I can say is long term rehab, Charlie, before they get you in the coroners bag.

chuck, it ain't you, my friend... it's everybody else, trust me. be sure to tighten your personal security on these wacky chicks in the future; go thru all their crap -- before the party starts -- and whip their stupid cell phone into the wall! this way they can't rat you out like cowards when they're holed-up in the bathroom. so effing annoying.

This guy really has a problem...cancel his show and he would sober up real quick. The show is written by 11-14 yr. olds that are fascinated with their body parts. Why don't they get some adult writters? I quit watching the show because it just keeps going downhill.

"Sorry, Charlie" ... you have had several chances at getting your act together so skip the rehab route and go direct to JAIL for an indefinite period of time. Kiss you're career good bye because the bottom line is that no one likes a drunk or a druggie.

Poor Charlie...He's had a hard life huh? What is with these privelaged people who think they have a right to abuse not only themselves, but also others and other's property. They lead a sheltered life compared to most and still attract the crap.
Charlie Sheen should try a little bit of normal life for a year or two. Try doing a real job for a while, then see how privelaged he feels. I did 30 years as a fire officer and never once had to have help with any form of abuse. And you know what Charlie? For all the money and fame you have, you would still have needed me profesionaly, long before I ever needed you.

OK so the show would be much better off without him....He gets millions of dollars to blow off...His dad must be so proud..So we cut him out of the show...The rest of the cast can easily support the show...Berta owns the house and Alan has no where to go but be Berta's boy toy...he gets to like it...His mom tries to save him but she gets a hot young tennis pro that really "nets" her..Jake has to spend more time with his mom..So we get to spend more time in that house with Herb...There's some untapped talent. Bring back Alan's dingy sex wife...Who does try to save Alan from Berta. So it is a war of wits, Blonde vs Brawn....There we have a great show and Charlie can go to rehab and we can wish him a slow & steady recovery and still have a million cash left over for charity.
