UPDATE: Charlie Sheen And Brooke Mueller Had “Sober Minders” The Day Of The Fight!

Who’s to blame in this domestic violence scandal?

UPDATE: Even though both Brooke Mueller and Charlie Sheen had alcohol in their systems at the time of the domestic dispute, RadarOnline is reporting that they were accompanied by “sober minders”, hired individuals who help their clients refrain from alcohol. Unfortunately, the couple’s sober minders were not in the same area of the house when the fight broke out when Brooke told Charlie she wanted a divorce.

Charlie Sheen was released from jail Friday evening, Dec. 25, after posting an $8,500 bond. Radar Online also reports that his wife, Brooke Mueller, claims Charlie choked her, which led to his Christmas morning arrest for second-degree assault in Aspen. Charlie, however, claims self defense. Here’s everything we’ve learned about the incident so far:

  1. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that Brooke told police Charlie threatened her with a knife. That would be the “weapon of some sort” previously reported.
  2. A judge has issued a restraining order against Charlie, according to Radar Online. He is reportedly only allowed to speak to Brooke through an attorney until the whole case is settled.
  3. Radar Online also reports that Brooke felt pressured by Charlie’s team to change her story, and that she says Charlie had been drinking and then attacked her.
  4. Charlie is telling friends that Brooke exaggerated when describing the incident, according to Radar Online. According to their source, Charlie accused Brooke of partying too much and she went ballistic.
  5. E! News is reporting that a weapon “of some sort” was involved in the incident between Charlie and Brooke.
  6. Chief Deputy Arnold Mordkin of Aspen tells TMZ he plans to file charges against Charlie on Feb. 8, 2010 — the date of Charlie’s next court appearance.
  7. Brooke is no longer cooperating with police, refusing to speak with them about the incident any further, according to TMZ.
  8. The couple was given blood alcohol tests: Brooke registered a .13, while Charlie only registered a .04
  9. The couple was already allegedly going through a trial separation before the incident.
  10. Charlie and Brooke were allegedly up drinking all night before the 911 call was made Christmas morning.
  11. Brooke Mueller, Charlie’s wife, claims he came at her and choked her.
  12. Charlie was released Friday evening, Dec. 25, after posting an $8,500 bond.
  13. Charlie’s rep, Stan Rosenfield, says: “Do not be mislead by appearance. Appearance and reality can be as different as night and day. It would benefit everyone not to jump to any conclusion.”
  14. The Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office released this statement: “Carlos Irwin Estevez, also known as the actor Charles I. Sheen, was brought to the Pitkin County Colorado Jail for booking and incarceration following his arrest by the Aspen Police Department.”
  15. Charlie Sheen, 44, was arrested on the morning of Dec. 25 by the Aspen Police Department and booked for second-degree assault, menacing, and criminal mischief, according to the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Department.

It is said that they were “partying”…did other people witness this or hear anything or did the argument/fight started when they arrived home!? Brooke’s alcohol level is .13 which is definately drunk, it’s possible Charlie was asking her to slow down on the booze, she get’s balistic, tries to go at him and he holds her down to try and calm her but since she’s drunk, Brooke views this as an attack.

As a recent jailbird myself I have to say I think that when there’s a dispute between man and woman more often than not it’s the woman’s fault. The reasons why men do things are often more elusive and why would women care anyways what men want or what the male reason is. Women have a tendency to sink the ship of all men. Since the modern rules govern men and ‘liberate’* the women (*although many modern women disagree that they have been liberated by liberation) they are quick to blame and play-act. They don’t really need a basis in fact or evidence. Just a loud mouth and a few stupidly chivalrous males around. I find myself resenting the creepy pencil neck guys that defend these women even more than the lying theiving women out for all they can get! Those guys are the root of all evil. Let’s all get together and make sure the women start getting the blame they deserve in such incidents. N

Flamingo, you are, of course correct. And, as an attorney, I find so many times that I am asking men, “why did you not call the police when this was going on.” The answer is always about the same, “I am a man, I do not do that.” This stupid macho attitude has to change if men are going to protect themselves.

May be it is not discrimination or bias against men, it might just be a matter of who called 911 first. Brooke made the call, anything Charlie said after that is regarded as defense, and will be best said in court before a judge.

Remember guys, if you are in a drama with your partner, and physical or threat of physical action is involved and you think that you are not the aggressor, be the first to make the call…

Unfortunately for Charlie, the woman is always believed. He has no chance, and he is a celebrity and Aspen, especially, likes to screw celebrities. They should steer clear of there and let the economy there die. This is a case of he-said, she-said. Who else was there to tell what happened? If no one, it is her word against his, and because she is a woman, she will be believed. In most states the blood alcohol level is .08, he was .04, half the level, and she was .13, a lot, lot over the level to be arrested for driving in that condition. How can someone that drunk be believed? The only reason is that she is a woman. I could not believe the story of someone in this condition. I wonder when this discrimination against men is going to end. And, she has the audacity to say he had been drinking too much. The facts do not support that. But, then I do not drink at all and think it is all bad, but it is a legal substance. Poor Charlie, he is screwed by the legal system in Aspen. And, I am not at all a Charlie Sheen fan. Sometimes is it just nice to see a liberal get what they deserve, after all, they are the ones who got all these crazy, discriminatory laws on the books.

Arrested and tossed in the pokey on Christmas Day? Can’t get much lower than that. One for the family album. Can’t say I’ve stayed up all night drinking since my twins were born.

You know when he posted bail, $8,500, he went straight to his phone, got a hotel room or another place to rent and called someone to send over a couple of girls.

Aren’t you wondering what his father is saying right about now? He’s wondering how he saved his son from drugs, got him a career in TV on a hot, hit show and today, he was choking the mother of his twin boys.

Emilio his brother has a similar situation, but he doesn’t live his life in the public eye & you never hear about him getting into fights with his baby’s mothers . . . ever!

He’s not interested in Anger Management classes or anything like that. He’s just trying to chew off his arm & leg because he feels trapped. Married life isn’t for everyone & he’s one of them.

I hope Brooke has a good prenup. This way she & the boys can get financial support & Charlie can get all the tweens, call girls in school uniforms and cheerleaders he can handle.

Jeepers, creepers, where’d ya get them peepers. I’m not sure if that’s a recent mug shot but it deserves a place in the Mug Shot Hall of Fame. His crazy aside- I always knew there was something a little off about him. Denise Richards is probably I told you so-ing all up in her crib.

The saddest part of this whole thing is finding out his real name isn’t Charlie Sheen. I don’t know what do to with myself anymore..
