Brooke Mueller Obtains Temporary Restraining Order Against Charlie Sheen
The Los Angeles Times reports that Brooke Mueller, the estranged wife of troubled actor Charlie Sheen, was granted a temporary restraining order against Sheen on Tuesday, March 1. Additionally, as part of the move, the couple’s children were taken from Sheen’s home by a representative for Mueller that night. The order also strips Sheen of contact with his two youngest children, 23-month-old twins Max and Bob, and forbids him from coming within 100 yards of Mueller for 19 days.
The allegations against Sheen by Mueller are severe. Among other accusations, she claims he repeatedly threatened to kill her, including a recent threat made on Sunday, February 27, when he told her he would cut her head off and send it to her mother. She alleges he made anti-Semitic comments about his manager and talked about killing him as well. According to Mueller, Sheen also talked to airplane passengers about his former wife, actress Denise Richards, during a recent trip to the Bahamas and said he hated her and was going to have Richards’ head shaved.
In 2009, the couple separated after an incident of domestic violence in Aspen, Colorado. However, recently Mueller and their children moved back into Sheen’s home, a decision she has stated was “a big mistake.”
When asked about the court order by KTLA-TV Channel 5, Sheen said he was aware of it but did not realize it would mean his children would be taken from him. He said, “I was told that a restraining order was being delivered, and I thought, ‘OK, I can deal with that,’ and then it was revealed that it was something much more serious.”
A restraining order, often referred to as an order of protection, is a legal order that requires a person to refrain from doing certain acts, and if they fail to comply with the order, they face civil and/or criminal penalties, and may also need to pay damages as well as possibly serve a prison sentence. Typically, orders are granted in Pennsylvania domestic violence situations.
