Cops Raid Charlie's House After Alarming Call

3/11/2011 10:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE 10:42 PM Law enforcement sources tell us cops wrapped up their search and Charlie wasn't arrested.  Charlie's lawyer, Mark Gross says police found one rifle -- from the 1800s -- and "a few bullets," adding no other weapons were in the house. Gross also confirmed police executed the search warrant because someone -- he didn't know who -- claimed Charlie had a gun.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... cops raided Charlie Sheen's house after receiving a call earlier today that Charlie threatened to harm himself with a firearm. 

Under the restraining order obtained by Brooke Mueller, Charlie is prohibited from possessing weapons.

Cops are inside the house right now, searching for firearms and ammunition.

And law enforcement tell us cops are not trying to place Charlie on a 5150 psychiatric hold.

Charlie, his lawyers, and several friends are sitting at a table in the backyard eating hamburgers. KTLA shot video of the surreal scene from their helicopter.

We are told the LAPD has been conducting several investigations involving Charlie, including the possible violation of the TRO.

UPDATE 10:18 PM PT -- Sheen just tweeted: "#fastball; the LAPD were AWESOME. Absolute pros! they can protect and serve this Warlock anytime!!! c"

Los Angeles police were at the Sherman Oaks, Calif., home of actor Charlie Sheen on Thursday night.
The fired "Two and a Half Men" actor tweeted "#fastball: all good here on homefront. all reports are false. I'll explain more very soon. #Dogspeed c"
Officer Norma Eisenman confirmed the police presence to KNBC but said the action was not a raid. Eisenman would not disclose who or what initiated the visit. A formal statement was expected to be released Thursday night, police said.
News helicopter video showed police officers standing around the home.
Sources told TMZ the LAPD was conducting an investigation into criminal activity — possibly drugs or weapons — and that the raid was "preplanned."
And someone reportedly inside the house told TMZ police may be attempting to take Sheen into custody on an involuntary psychiatric hold.
TMZ also said a source inside the house told it Sheen allegedly violated a temporary restraining order obtained by ex-wife Brooke Mueller that prohibits him from possessing weapons.

Gee, the LAPD shows up three weeks after they hear about massive amounts of drugs at Charlie's & expect to find something? The LAPD must be taking BUNGLING LESSONS from Sheriff Baca's LA Sheriffs. LMAO.

The helicopter is keeping me awake--so I guess I'm losing.

TMZ: Since you are the CIA, can you tell the LAPD to block the helicopters after 9?
