Charlie Sheen restraining order set to expire Tuesday
Court officials said the scheduled hearing to make more permanent the restraining order protecting Mueller and their 2-year-old twins was taken off the calendar.
The order had forbidden the "Two and a Half Men" star from contacting his two youngest children, Bob and Max, and barring him from coming within 100 yards of Mueller.
Mueller claimed in court papers that Sheen repeatedly threatened to kill her, including when he told her, "I will cut your head off, put it in a box and send it to your mom!"
Mueller also claimed the actor discussed using child-support money to "knock off" enemies and that he threatened to stab her in the eye with a pen knife. In the wake of that order, which barred Sheen from possessing firearms, Los Angeles police searched Sheen’s home.
But a week after that order was issued, attorneys for Mueller and Sheen indicated they had come to a settlement on custody that would resolve the restraining order. Mueller and Sheen separated after a domestic violence incident in Aspen in 2009, but she and their children moved back into the actor’s home a few months ago, a decision Mueller described as “a big mistake” in her declaration.
