The children were not removed from the residence and there was no report that they were endangered, according to two Los Angeles Police Department sources familiar with the call.

"My sons are fine... My path is now clear... Defeat is not an option...!" Sheen posted on his new Twitter account late Tuesday.

In recent days, Sheen has held a series of headline-grabbing interviews after CBS canceled his show, "Two and a Half Men," for the remainder of the season. Speaking to ABC, CNN and other news and radio outlets, Sheen ranted about having "tiger blood" in his veins and called his bosses "knuckleheads" and "AA Nazis."

The 45-year-old actor has long had a reputation for reckless behavior. He allegedly threatened his second wife with a knife, has been to rehab and landed in a hospital emergency room in January.
