Brooke Mueller, Charlie Sheen's ex-wife, is arrested in Aspen

December 5, 2011 | 11:47 am


Brooke Mueller, Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife, was arrested over the weekend after allegedly assaulting a woman at an Aspen, Colo., bar on Saturday night. She also was found to be in possession of at least four grams of cocaine, police said.

Though the couple had a tumultuous relationship and Sheen has had his own troubles with Aspen police, the actor was nowhere near Mueller Saturday night; he had tweeted from Cartagena, Colombia, on Friday.

According to a source, Mueller, 34, was at the bar Belly Up when the alleged assault occurred. When notified of the incident, police tracked Mueller to another bar, Escobar, where a source said she arrived noticeably intoxicated just after midnight. When police arrested her, she reportedly yelled out, "I run this town!"

Mueller, a former real estate investor, was booked and released on $11,000 bail. She will appear in court on Dec. 19.

Sheen was arrested in Aspen on Christmas morning 2009 for allegedly beating Mueller, who was married to him at the time. She was the one to call 911, saying that Sheen was drunk.

Sheen and Mueller, who divorced in February of 2011, had a lengthy custody battle over their of 3-year-old twin sons. Sheen went to court in April to ask for full custody of the children after Mueller entered a rehab clinic for drug use. Both are required to pass drug tests as part of their custody agreement.

It was unclear who had custody of the sons at the time of Mueller's arrest.
