Charlie Sheen under psychiatric evaluation and 'headed to rehab' after being found 'drunk and naked' in trashed hotel room



Trouble: Charlie Sheen, seen here in New York on Sunday, was found drunk and naked in his hotel room

Charlie Sheen is under psychiatric evaluation and is headed to rehab after being found drunk and naked in a trashed hotel room, it is claimed.

The 45-year-old actor is still in the process of deciding which facility he will check into, but is considering returning to Promises in Malibu.

Sheen's decision to undergo treatment follows his recent scandalous behaviour in New York in the early hours of Tuesday morning, according to RadarOnline.

'Charlie is going back to rehab,' a source told the website. 'That’s his plan right now. He knows he has to do something.'

The actor allegedly wrecked a hotel suite in a drunken tantrum after an encounter with a prostitute.

Sheen flew into a rage when he thought he had lost his wallet and phone after returning with the woman after a night ‘partying’ in New York, according to reports.
Security guards at the Plaza Hotel on Fifth Avenue discovered him naked and drunk at 2am.

Sheen’s ex-wife, actress Denise Richards, was staying in a separate room with the couple’s two young children Sam, six and Lola, five.

Tables and chairs were said to have been thrown around Sheen’s room and a chandelier damaged.

The star of TV sitcom Two And A Half Men told police that he had snorted a recreational drug, according to sources quoted in the New York Post.
U.S. magazine Life & Style reported that the prostitute was found screaming inside a locked closet.

‘She was fearing for her life and was naked,’ a source told its website. ‘Charlie was incoherent but started screaming slurs at the cops.

‘They recognised him immediately and gave him two options: they could take him to the hospital or take him down to the station. Charlie chose the hospital.
‘His two daughters were sleeping in the next room. Denise had to go with the cops and leave the girls with a nanny. She looked distraught.’

Police said they responded to a call from the Plaza about an ‘emotionally disturbed individual’ who was said to be ‘intoxicated and irrational’.

‘He was taken to the hospital in the company of a female, who was unhurt,’ said a source. Sheen, who is paid £600,000 an episode for his role in Two And A Half Men, was reportedly taken by ambulance to hospital ‘for alcohol abuse and psychological evaluation’.

He went voluntarily and was not formally arrested.

A spokesman for the actor insisted he had done nothing illegal.

‘What we are able to determine is that Charlie had an adverse reaction to some medication and was taken to the hospital where he is expected to be released tomorrow.’

On Monday evening, Sheen was seen in Manhattan with Miss Richards, 39, and daughters Sam, six, and Lola, five.

The couple went through a mud-slinging divorce four years ago and at one point Miss Richards even took out a restraining order against him.

But they appeared to have put their troubles behind them when they took their children to see Mary Poppins on Broadway on Sunday.

Miss Richards, who appeared in the James Bond film The World Is Not Enough, went on Howard Stern’s radio show in the U.S. yesterday and said she had told the children: ‘Daddy had a time-out.’

'It's been an eventful trip,' she added.

Sheen, who appeared in hit films Wall Street and Platoon, has battled drug and alcohol addictions.

Last year, he was arrested after a fight with his estranged wife, Brooke Mueller, the mother of his twin toddler sons, who claimed that he had tried to kill her. He pleaded guilty to assault.
