Brooke Mueller's 911 call about Charlie Sheen released [AUDIO]

December 28, 2009 |  3:53 pm


Chuck A 911 call was made Christmas morning from the Aspen, Colo. home where Brooke Mueller and Charlie Sheen were staying -- police responded, and Sheen was eventually arrested.

Now the Aspen Police Department has released the 911 tape, and you can listen for yourself -- just click "play" on the image above.

In the tape, Brooke describes Sheen as having a knife, and mentions that other people are in the house with them. When Brooke says Sheen is trying to leave, the 911 officer says that, if possible without endangering anyone, it would be best if he could be encouraged to stay while the officers respond to the call.

She says repeatedly, "I have to file the report."

The "Two and a Half Men" actor was arrested that morning and released on bail in the evening. He'll return to court Feb. 8, 2010, concerning counts of second degree assault, menacing and criminal mischief, all coupled with a domestic violence component.

According to police spokeswoman Stephanie Dasaro, details on the department's case report and investigation won't be be available at this time, to avoid compromising the integrity of any subsequent prosecution. 

[Update, 8:01 p.m.: Just stumbled across this article about Brooke's take on Charlie's bad-boy reputation.]
