Affidavit: Charlie Sheen Held Knife to Wife’s Throat, Threatened to Kill Her

Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes





An arrest warrant affidavit released today reveals that Brooke Mueller told Aspen police Charlie Sheen put a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her after she said she wanted a divorce.

“You better be in fear,” the documents quote Sheen as telling her. “If you tell anybody, I’ll kill you.”

The affidavit also says Sheen denied making threats.

While speculation grows as to exactly what went down between Charlie Sheen and his wife Brooke Mueller on Christmas Day, don’t expect anything (legally) to happen before February.

Sheen is expected in court on February 8, and there won’t be word – until shortly before then – as to whether prosecutors decide to charge the “Two and a Half Men” star for alleged domestic violence.

Sheen was arrested on suspicion of menacing, second-degree assault and criminal mischief. Chief Deputy District Attorney Arnold Mordkin said today that the menacing charge — a result of the alleged threat with a weapon — can result in a two to eight years prison sentence and a fine of anywhere between $2,000 and $500,000.

And even though the court appearance wouldn’t be until six weeks from now, Gossip Cop is feeling fairly certain we’ll be hearing plenty more about this in the intervening period.
