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.

I hope DCPD got the money up front - in cash.

Nice of Chuckles to provide damning evidence for the investigation.

Agree that he hasn't changed one bit. STILL abusing women in case anyone hasn't been paying attention.

He MAY be clean but he is not sober.

Not buying much love when the money runs out.

"Must be a tough call indeed to differentiate between one's own and Charlie Sheen's tax money. To see the difference. And to acknowledge the implications."

As a number cruncher, I agree with you in principle (btw, income statement would've been the more appropriate analogy). The fact that they were driving eighty miles an hour to get his sorry ass to a show? That bothers me more.

Cops are PAID to uphold laws not to flagrantly break them for no particularly good reason.

Words right out of Chuckles mouth - driving like someone was about to deliver a baby. NO body was having a baby in that car. No justification for speeding.

Police escort for celebrities intended to PROVIDE safety not make the situation UNSAFE.

Obscure FYI, FWIW when Denise was delivering their baby Charlie was too distracted by following a bet that he had mucho money riding on to participate. Read the divorce papers at Smoking Gun.

I suppose so. To be fair, Denise had been warned up front. Part of the terms of marriage to Charlie was not to EVER speak when he was involved in watching sports or gambling.

What was she thinking - just because its delivering a baby why should that be an exception. She's finally learned, though - that's why she now accepts that his lifestyle is his lifestyle - and he can bad mouth her as part of his show material if he wants. Her priority is to shield her daughters. Silly mother.

Even if Charlie paid for the police escort out of pocket, the taxpayers are footing the bill for the investigation. And if that investigation leads to a trial . . . the tax dollars will continue to add up.

Excellent point! Investigation with/without a trial is potentially much more costly than the silly escort.

One thing that the publicity surrounding this fiasco will accomplish... because Chuckie couldn't keep his fat yap shut, police officers will either be reprimanded or fired.

Do you think that officers in other jurisdictions will be so quick to assist Charlie the Tuna next time he's late?? I would think that, if it isn't a matter of life and death, he'll be lucky to get the time of day from the cops from now on.
