Today I'm thinking about Charlie Sheen. He was seen in an Aspen, Colorado court yesterday, where he was expected to plead guilty to misdemeanor assault and be sentenced to 30 days in jail plus three months probation.
Turns out that a couple of hours after Charlie arrived something changed. Prosecutor Arnold Mordkin told the court, "We need more time than is available for us to complete some of the finer points [of the plea deal]." This deal was designed to allow Charlie to film "Two and a Half Men" after extending his contract for two more seasons. Now all parties are expected back in court July 12th.
TMZ claims a woman who runs the work release program at the jail refused to honor the deal because she didn't like the way it was structured. This came after she and her boss had already signed off on the deal.
In exchange for Sheen's guilty plea, prosecutors were supposed to drop criminal mischief and felony menacing charges against him. He was arrested on Christmas day after having an argument with his wife Brooke Mueller. He allegedly threatened her with a knife.
Well, the good news in all of this is that Charlie did sign on for two more years with "Two and a Half Men" so one of my favorite shows will remain intact. “To put a fitting end on the two and one-half months of whirlwind speculation, I’m looking forward to returning to my CBS home on Monday nights," said Sheen and I'm looking forward to it too.
