A few weeks ago, Brooke Mueller and Charlie Sheen (now divorced) appeared on Entertainment Tonight. The goal, I think, was trying to show the world that they were both doing well and raising their babies together. Unfortunately, they both seemed like they were blitzed out of their minds, Brooke even more than Charlie. Between the two of them, I’ve long suspected that Charlie is the one who is sober more often, and the one who can keep his junk together more consistently while high as a kite. Brooke just seemed like a total mess, like there is no point in her life where she is simply maintaining a veneer of “sobriety”. Anyway, my assumption was right. Brooke was just arrested in Aspen, Colorado for possession and assault.
Brooke Mueller was arrested while vacationing in Aspen, Colorado for felony cocaine possession with the intention to distribute early Saturday morning.
In a statement released by the Aspen Police Department, Charlie Sheen’s ex, 34, was also busted for a misdemeanor 3rd degree assault charge.
The mom of 2-year-old twin sons Bob and Max was released from Pitkin County Jail Saturday morning when she posted the $11,000 bond. Mueller has a District Court date of December 19.
On Christmas day in 2009, Sheen, 46, allegedly held a knife to Mueller’s throat and threatened to kill her. He later pled guilty on lesser charges and spent time in rehab, not jail. Since the incident, the two had lived apart, although their divorce wasn’t officially granted until this past May.
A source told Us Weekly in August that the parents have been “getting counseling and therapy [with] the boys” and Mueller, who has struggled with substance addiction, is “actually responding to treatment.”

According to Radar, everything went down at a series of clubs in Aspen. A woman came up to police officers at Belly Up Aspen, and the woman claimed that she’d been assaulted by Brooke. Officers found Brooke at Escobar, another nightclub and she was arrested and charged with “assault in the third degree (class one misdemeanor) and possession of cocaine with intent to distribute (class four felony).” And Radar’s source says, “How do you help someone like Brooke? Her parents even moved to Los Angeles to take care of her and help her take care of her kids, and that didn’t even help. With this latest development, her friends are beyond caring anymore.”
Even People Magazine’s sources admit that Brooke is a cokehead disaster too – all of these anonymous “sources” seem to have been sent out to do damage control, and it speaks volumes that People Magazine got one of harsher critiques of Brooke: “Brooke can’t stay sober on her own. Maybe this [arrest] will force her to go into a treatment center for a long stay. Thirty-day rehabs won’t work for her. Her family has been trying to get her to do this, now maybe the court will force her to get the help she needs! She has enough family to take care of the kids while she’s away.” But! Brooke’s rep, Steve Honig (the same rep as LINDSAY LOHAN for the love of God, THAT should tell you something) tells People Mag: “I think anyone who is truly a friend of Brooke’s would not be spending their time talking anonymously and behind her back to the media. I seriously question the validity of any comments made by these people alleging to be friends with Brooke.” Yeah, I think the anonymously-sourced quote comes from her family, and I feel bad for them. They probably are hoping that the legal system will help clean up this mess.
