This post has been corrected. Please see the note below for details.

Brooke Mueller and Aspen are continuing their rocky relationship: Charlie Sheen's ex and the mother of his twins has been charged with two felonies and a misdemeanor in connection with a December arrest in the Colorado ski town.

This as the 34-year-old earlier this week emerged, her rep said, from "an intensive three-month drug and alcohol treatment program."

Felony charges of cocaine possession and possession with intent to distribute — that's more than 4 grams — were filed the afternoon of Feb. 17, along with a misdemeanor charge of third-degree assault, according to the Aspen Times. The charging documents reference 11 witnesses to the night's events, the Times said.

Mueller, 34, was arrested in the wee hours Dec. 3 at the downtown Aspen nightclub Escobar on suspicion of assaulting another woman hours earlier at the nearby Belly Up Aspen bar. At least 4 grams of cocaine was found in her possession, police said at the time.

The last time Mueller was involved in a high-profile Aspen arrest, she was the victim, not the alleged perp. It was Christmas morning 2009, when she called 911 to report she was being attacked by her then-husband, Charlie Sheen.

[For the record, 8:05 p.m. Feb. 24: An earlier version of this post referred to Mueller as the father of Charlie Sheen's twins, rather than as their mother.]
