Charlie Sheen won't face criminal charges for N.Y. hotel meltdown

Charlie Sheen won't be prosecuted for New York hotel meltdown with porn star Capri Anderson Charlie Sheen reportedly won't face criminal charges for his October meltdown with porn star Capri Anderson at New York's Plaza hotel.

"There have been no arrests. That case is closed," a New York Police Department spokesman told E! News on Tuesday after TMZ reported that Sheen wouldn't be prosecuted for assault and battery or false imprisonment.
Anderson filed a complaint with police in New York on Nov. 22, nearly a month after the hotel room fracas but only hours after appearing on "Good Morning America" with her attorney to announce her intention to slap Sheen with a civil suit. Police arrived in the wee hours Oct. 26 to find the adult actress locked in the bathroom and the sitcom actor naked and drunk in the hotel's trashed Eloise Suite.
"These allegations against Mr. Sheen are completely false and are a blatant attempt to cash in on his celebrity," attorney Yale Galanter said the day Anderson went to police. He alleged she'd been to a number of law firms that had turned her away because of credibility issues.
The "Two and a Half Men" star filed a lawsuit against Anderson — real name Christina Walsh — the day she threatened to sue him; he alleges she tried to extort $1 million from him and stole his $165,000 Patek Philippe watch

Charlie Sheen update: Watch, not wallet; porn star, not pro?
