Charlie Sheen Cheats Smoking Law in Toronto

4/14/2011 9:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen just found a way to skirt Toronto's strict anti-smoking laws during his show there -- lighting up an electronic cigarette.

Shortly after Charlie hit the stage in Toronto's Massey Hall ... our spies say he bragged about not having an ashtray and said he didn't need any cigs. However, a few minutes later he sparked up one of those electronic cigarettes.

Massey Hall management told TMZ they might shut down the show if Charlie lit up on stage because they could face up to $100,000 in fines from the city.

Charlie's been smoking almost non-stop during every other stop on the tour.

We're told he did light up some real tobacco though ... in front of fans who gathered outside the theater right before the show.

By the way, so far so good ... the crowd inside is loving Sheen's act.

UPDATE 6:07PM PDT: Charlie just thumbed his nose at that letter from WB ... telling the crowd, "Negotiations with 'Two and a Half Men' are moving forward. We need to get in a room and fix this thing ... give the people what they want."

Stay tuned ...

He's Delusional. Wait for his stand up act to end. Then he'll stage a faux suicide attempt to stay on the news and get the sympathy vote. When THAT fails, maybe then he'll disappear, take his whores and move to a desert island.

Thank You Nancy...seems TMZ has lost interest in their money maker...you did a better job anyway!

Thanks! Too bad TMZ didn't feel like doing it, but there were other sources - and they were more fun to read, frankly. The general consensus seemed to be that Russell Peters WAS the show tonight, and will most likely reprise the role tomorrow. Hope Sheen's paying him a buttload, since Peters has already stated he's doing the gig for charity - obviously NOT for Charlie!

@RoastBeef it wasn’t Torontonians that called in the Army it was the Mayor the people of Toronto didn’t asked for that and it was more than 2 inches look between your legs to see what 2 inches looks like so you will know what the difference is

Toronto review.

One of the remarks that I found especially interesting was the admission that he had a 2 hour warning before the gun raid at his house. I always figured he had a head's up from someone in the LAPD - Charlie has licenses for 47 hand guns in the state of CA - but - boy- was that stupid to go public with that info.

Two hours is enough time to get rid of the guns, get his lawyer over, and organize a burger cookout. The last two items we know about from video & reporting of the raid. The first - just my conjecture - but come on.....

What a sad joke.....

"-- Sheen also discussed the LAPD's raid of his house last month, during which police search for weapons that would have been in violation of the since revoked restraining order that his ex-wife Brooke Mueller had taken out against him. He said he had two hours' notice of the search, which resulted in 100 officers "picking through the asbestos." Among other items, they confiscated an antique gun from the 1800s, which Peters called the "gayest gun ever."

Hey, you know how people have been trying to come up with a descriptor for Charlie's shows - "like performance art" etc.? Well, someone may have actually come up with a really good one:

"The CBC's Eli Glasner reported from inside Massey Hall that he was watching "a barely organized gong show."

****************************************************

From all accounts, that's a fairly accurate description of what went on, at least on Charlie's part. I mean, really, he needed the services of a bonafide comedian to actually make a "show" out of it, and still didn't go much over the 1 hour mark. Kinda pathetic.

LOL! Eastern Cdns call in the army after 2 inches of snow.
Don't paint all Cdns with the same brush, PLEASE!

I adore Canada and all my Canadian friends... not all are the type that would shell out insane amounts of money to see whether or not this is the night Charlie melts down. Honest!!


Canadian here, and from what I seen there werent too many there to begin with...and no most Canadians would not go and see someone like Charlie. How he got into our country I have no idea.I hardly think 2 inches of snow anywhere in Canada would even be worth talking about , let alone bringing in the army, who's the moron that posted that. Smoking,nope , it was a electronic cig, no one cares if he smoked outside, and yes he would have been fined big time had he lit up inside, he is not important and even if he was , he would have been fined .

------------------------------------------------------------

Wow, the charlie sheen speak, it' got about a much depth as a piece of paper. Charlie thinks he is Jack Kerouac, or the next Lenny Bruce. But I just see him as a spoiled pampered child, who has been throwing a temper tantrum about loosing his job, hawking teeshirts and going on and on about his party life (which for a 45 year old he should have something more to say for himself...)

Yeah. I'm just hoping the TMZ reporter didn't get "made" and hijacked. Seriously.

I"ll tell you, I feel sadder by the minute about this situation and I didn't think that was even possible.

I agree with the poster who said - in essence - that Charlie is lucky to be surrounded by security - or else....I just have to think that there are LOTS of men out there who would love to just beat the crud out of him. And more than a few women. Just because. He is insufferable.
