Brooke Mueller told police she was terrified husband Charlie Sheen was going to kill her when he allegedly attacked her with a knife on Christmas Day (25.12.09)
Charlie Sheen's wife told police she was terrified the actor was going to kill her when he allegedly attacked her with a knife.
Brooke Mueller - mother of the 'Two and a Half Men' star's nine-month-old twin sons, Bob and Max - made a frantic 911 call after a blazing row at the couple's holiday home in Aspen, Colorado, on Christmas Day (25.12.09).
According to gossip website TMZ, in the phone call Mueller told officers: "My husband had me with a knife and I'm scared for my life, and he threatened me. I thought I was going to die."
In the call, Mueller identifies herself as "Brooke" and pauses when the operator asks for her husband's name.
She then replied: "It's Charlie Sheen."
Sheen, 44, was arrested on investigation of second-degree assault, a felony charge, and criminal mischief, a misdemeanour charge, and spent much of his sons Bob and Max's first Christmas behind bars.
He was later released on an $8,500 bail and while he was not charged, a court date has been set for February 8 2010.
It has since been claimed the alleged attack happened after Mueller told Sheen she wanted to end their 17-month marriage.
A source said: "Brooke told Charlie, 'I want a divorce.' She said she was leaving him for good."
Friends say the couple have different lifestyles and the marriage isn't working.
One pal said: "Brooke is very social and loves to be with other people and Charlie, when he's not working or rehearsing for his show, prefers to stay home. He's not into the Hollywood scene and doesn't even enjoy going out to dinner."
Sheen was previously married to actress Denise Richards, with who he has two young daughters, Sam and Lola, with as well as a 25-year-old daughter Cassandra from a previous relationship.
