Charlie Sheen’s wife, Brooke Mueller, has accused the actor of threatening her with a knife in a Christmas Day emergency phone call to police that led to his arrest.
ABC.com is reporting that Meuller told police that Sheen had threatened to kill her during an argument about a possible divorce. Sheen was arrested that same day. According to her sworn affidavit, Mueller told police that Sheen grabbed her by the throat while straddling her on a bed, “then pulled out a knife, holding it to her throat, saying, “You better be in fear. If you tell anybody I’ll kill you. … I have ex-police I can hire who know how to get the job done and they won’t leave any trace.”
Since the incident, Mueller has lawyered-up and has back peddled from her original version of events. She has asked the court to set aside the injunction she has put in place to protect her from Sheen. In Florida, it is a crime to make false sworn statements or to make false police reports to law enforcement.
