Cops Launch Investigation Into Charlie Sheen Escort

4/22/2011 12:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen is no stranger to escorts ... but the one he picked up in D.C. earlier this week has triggered a police investigation.

0422_charlie_sheen_BN

D.C. police have announced ... an internal investigation is underway to find out who authorized multiple units to use lights and sirens to escort Sheen from the airport to his live show Tuesday night ... when he was running about an hour late.

Sheen tweeted during the incident -- posting a photo of a speedometer right around the 80 mph mark and writing, "in car with Police escort in front and rear! driving like someone's about to deliver a baby! Cop car lights."

UPDATE: Apparently Charlie got the Obama treatment ... DC PD released a statement saying escort duty is typically reserved for POTUS, the VP, or visiting heads of state. They admit it appears "protocols ... were not followed" -- and Internal Affairs is investigating.

Was Sheen even present when any of his kids were born? My guess would be no. His thoughts were probably from (faint) memories of watching Cops on TV while choking down crack.

Why is it when I heard the words Charlie Sheen and "escort".....i automatically think they are talking about a prostitute?

Also, I don't think it's fair to assume that it was locally funded, you can actually pay a fee (and it's not cheap) for this service.

I agree thats the first thing I thought of to was a hooker. I am sure he was made to pay for this, at least I hope so, its all a publicity stunt so he can get attention..what a jerk

For those that are interested in Gov't spending. Since Obama has been in office we've increased or national debt by almost 50% (Yup big number isn't it). In order to decrease the debt by $4 trillion in 4 years (back to almost the level it was when Obama took office) the Gov't will have to decrease spending by 38% (Yup this is the real figure folks). If spending can't be decreased guess what? The difference will have to be recovered with increased fees and taxes. If (when) this happens it won't just be hitting Daddy Warbucks in the wallet.

So at this point any waste by any Gov't agency should infuriate all of us whether it's at the Federal, State, or Local level.

Wow, find the only two comments that seem to support OUR MAN, the WHINER, and give 'em kudos... even though both comments were obviously more politically motivated. Oh, that's right, you have no clue about AMERICAN politics, do you? You wouldn't have the vaguest idea why the First Lady of the United States would be flying overseas - by the way, how many people died in that plane crash in Russia about a year ago??

Again, Charlie the Tuna isn't being raked over the coals in this one, so you rabid acolytes can go back to genuflecting at the altar of OUR MAN the WEINER. He's on the hook to pay for the escort, but the investigation is INTERNAL. Now, go sit in a corner for trying to 'rouse the rabble.'

Don't make this a political freakin' rant. Sheen is on the hook to pay for this stunt, the cops will be investigated for performing the escort without authorization, and that should be end of story.

Believe me, the last thing you should be doing here is trying to start the political thing. Soooooo off topic and totally uncool.

Likely Sheen won't pay a dime. The officer(s) approving the escort will be reprimanded or possibly terminated. The DC taxpayer will be left paying the tab. Even though relatively minor it's money that could have been repurposed for a better use. Just another way Sheen is 'suckering' people only this time it's unwilling participants (the taxpayers of DC).

Ridiculous. They should all be fired. Getting some stupid, idiotic, crazy-ass nut job to some retarded stand-up show is NOT an emergency (everyone walked out anyway). When I'm late for work I don't get a police escort. No wonder he doesn't think there's anything wrong with him when everyone is bending over backwards for this ******* for some reason. Why can't those people who go on shooting rampages ever kill people like him and actually do the world a service?

Even if it's true that Charlie paid for this police escort himself (which I highly doubt), this was still a waste of the police's time. Do they have nothing better to do?! How about searching for missing people, investigating crimes, keeping traffic safe, and responding to actual emergencies? Until all of these things are done, they have no business acting as Charlie Sheen's personal guards.

Good for them. The people have a right to know who authorized this outrageous waste of their tax dollars. Charlie Sheen being late for his pathetic show is hardly an emergency and the idiots could have killed someone speeding and running red lights! Just because they're the police doesn't mean they should get away with breaking the law and endangering citizens unless it's absolutely necessary.

All this did was inflate Charlie's already oversized ego even more. Who the hell does Charlie think he is anyway? The fact that some of the police were star-struck enough to go along with this is ridiculous, but then again, they love this sort of thing, it makes them feel important. Hint: Police are supposed to protect and serve the PUBLIC and that's an important job! If Charlie Sheen thinks that he needs or deserves an escort like this, let him hire his own security! Not like he can't afford it.

Anon, so far Charlie has been above the law with everything he had done he has never been really punished. Why should he not think that the rules don't apply to him. How foolish, childish and selfish he is with doing this - not ever thinking that they could get in trouble. It is ALL ABOUT CHARLIE!
