Sheen's Kids Removed After Alleged Death Threat

3/2/2011 11:38 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A judge temporarily stripped Charlie Sheen of custody of his twin sons Tuesday, after Brooke Mueller submitted a declaration in which she alleged Charlie said, "I will cut your head off, put it in a box and send it to your mom" ... TMZ has learned.

Charlie Sheen Death Threat Brooke Mueller

TMZ broke the story ... Brooke's lawyer got a temporary restraining order against Charlie, prohibiting him from going near her.  The judge also ordered Charlie to surrender their twin boys -- Bob and Max -- to Brooke while the TRO remains in effect.

Police removed the twins from Charlie's house late Tuesday.

According to legal docs, Brooke also claims ... on February 23 Charlie threw a phone inside his house and then with a penknife in hand, threatened to stick it in Brooke's eye.

Today's hearing was held without notice to Charlie -- his lawyers were not present.

Brooke's lawyer confessed to the court ... Brooke is currently in a "day treatment" facility for substance abuse.  She says she will see the kids for around 4 hours a day while the TRO is in effect and her mom will provide care for the rest of the day.

Sources tell TMZ Charlie's team is furious that the order was issued and plans to go to court tomorrow in an attempt to undo it.

Charlie tweeted Tuesday night, "My sons are fine ... My path is now clear ... Defeat is not an option!"

UPDATE: Charlie was just live on "Today" where he said he didn't say those words, adding "it's colorful ... that's a good one I guess. If you spend enough time around me you can formulate things and make it sound like it could have come from my mouth, but you can do that watching reruns."

He also looked at the camera and sent out a message directly to Brooke, saying "I'm sorry you felt this had to be done in this way, but this does not display any responsible parenting."

If he threatened her last week and was so scared, why did she fly off in a plane to the Bahamas with him? Something just doesn't jive.

He was going to stab her in the eyeball on the 23rd of Feb, but then she goes on vacation with him? Weird. Why is she just now reporting that on March 1st? He may be abusive, but why did the girl wait a whole week to file a tro?

PS One other thing that is bad: Since he's done all these appearances with no make up person or stylist, it has become clear he is nearly bald, and only hair plugs cover his forehead. Major receding hairline all around, except a tuft of long hair in front swept back--some times more effectively than at others. It's called a (bad) combover.

Well if Brooke is in "Day Care" we can assume the children are with her parents or other competent family members...

Charlie Sheen Doesn't Hit Women (Oh, Really?)
by Jeanne Sager

Have you heard the news? Charlie Sheen is now the hero to the All-American male. Able to take more drugs than nature allows and still survive. He's able to rant on network TV and avoid the psych ward. Able to convince a bevy of "goddesses" to move in with him after he successfully did the above plus lost his job on Two and a Half Men (where, let's face it, he didn't do any work to begin with -- he just played a lazy drunk).

Who knew being a wife-beating criminal was such a great thing, America? Yup. While certain American males are sitting, as you read this, furiously typing "how the f--k do I get Charlie Sheen's life?" they're conveniently ignoring a whole long history of Charlie Sheen's brushes with the law. Piers Morgan hasn't. In a bit released from tonight's highly anticipated interview, Sheen claims:

Women are not to be hit. They are to be hugged and caressed.

Oh, really? Remember the time he allegedly slammed a girlfriend's head into the ground, knocking her unconscious? How about that time he choked his own wife? America, let's wake up. You are currently fascinated with a man who is a criminal, and a dangerous one at that.

Sheen's goddesses, Natalie Kenly and Rachel Oberlin, plus soon-to-be ex-wife Brooke Mueller and two of his children, are now said to be living with a man who was once arrested on felony assault charges for threatening Mueller with a knife and trying to choke her (he was later convicted). These women and children are living with a guy who allegedly once slammed girlfriend Brittany Ashland into a marble floor, then threatened to kill her if she told anyone about the assault. A guy who didn't care that ex-wife Denise Richards was holding daughter Lola in her arms when she says he pushed her to the ground, making death threats. And let's not forget way back in 1990, Sheen "accidentally shot" then-fiancee Kelly Preston in the arm. He wasn't charged, but Preston immediately broke off the engagement (moving on to marry John Travolta).

Still sound like a guy we should be laughing about and celebrating for living the high life? Really? Because that's just brushing over the domestic violence charges. We also have Sheen's alleged trashing of a room at the Plaza Hotel last fall, when -- surprise, surprise -- his "escort" was said to be locked in a closet, terrified.

We could go on. Talk about the rehab stints. His link to Heidi Fleiss. But we shouldn't need to.

Charlie Sheen may think he's a tiger with Adonis DNA. I think he's a s***bag. America, when are you going to follow suit?
