Pub­li­cist: Char­lie Sheen en­ters re­hab, tak­ing break from


sought pri­vacy for the em­bat­tled ac­tor.

The move comes roughly two months af­ter Sheen was ar­rested af­ter a fight with his wife at his Aspen, Colo., home. Pros­e­cu­tors later charged the ac­tor with felony men­ac­ing and mis­de­meanour charges of third-de­gree as­sault and crim­i­nal mis­chief. The most se­ri­ous charge car­ries a max­i­mum three-year prison term.

Sheen’s wife, Brooke, is also in re­hab seek­ing treat­ment for an undis­closed rea­son, her at­tor­ney Yale Galanter said Mon­day. She is still ask­ing that the charges be dis­missed, he said.

Galanter and Rosen­field con­firmed Mon­day that Los An­ge­les child pro­tec­tive ser­vices work­ers vis­ited the ac­tor and the cou­ple’s in­fant sons over the week­end. Galanter and Rosen­field said it was a rou­tine, pre­vi­ously sched­uled visit re­lated to the Aspen court case.

Un­til Tues­day, Sheen’s le­gal prob­lems hadn’t dis­rupted tap­ing of Two and a Half Men, which is one of CBS’ top shows and tele­vi­sion’s top-rated com­edy.

Last week, 10.6 mil­lion peo­ple tuned into a re­run of the show, ac­cord­ing to rat­ings re­leased by the Nielsen Co.

CBS spokesman Chris En­der had no im­me­di­ate com­ment Tues­day on Sheen en­ter­ing re­hab.

In early Jan­uary, CBS En­ter­tain­ment pres­i­dent Nina Tassler said the net­work was be­ing sen­si­tive to what it con­sid­ered a “very per­sonal and pri­vate mat­ter for Char­lie.”
