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"

I understand Charlie's " issues, " also the guns / restraining order conflict and personally I think that he's been quite the p r i c k, especially as of late. BUT... ya know what??? Perhaps they could've formally requested that he surrender any weapons in the house, instead of conducting a high-profile raid. Sooner or later ya gotta pull you're thumb off of him and give him some space. If that happens Charlie.... friggin' chill and keep your damn mouth shut!!! You've been a very bad boy.... time to start honestly addressing your issues!!!

Maybe it's like this.

If he violated the restraining order that at least could get him arrested for a few hours. THEN, when he's in whatever holding place someone can suggest an evaluation be done and from there he can be taken to the hospital. If he gets violent those are other charges which could just give everyone more time to put a hold on him and have him evaluated for real.

THE POLICE ARE TROLLS

It would be a mistake feeding them burgers next thing you know they'll be back for donuts in the morning. One must never feed the trolls.

So, someone called stating he basically threatened to shoot himself, but the cops are trying to figure out if he violated a restraining order by possessing a weapon? I'm not buying it.

If Charlie has to give up the machete does Brooke have to give up her crack pipe?

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 opening line of this story gave me pause as well. They got the call 'earlier today' that he threatened to kill himself and show up HOURS later. Flav was right, 911 is a joke.
