Brooke Mueller arrested in Aspen, charged with possession and assault

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.

    I hope Charlie stays off of drugs and takes her twins .

  2. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    She was coked out and selling at a club called Escobar? Oh, the irony!

  3. the original bellaluna says:

    Wow. So how’s that whole “sobriety thing” working out for ya, Brooke?

    • Kimbob says:

      Yeah, really! The chickens have come to roost finally on her front porch. Brooke is basically a rich, spoiled brat thumbing her nose, and addiction(s) at the world.

      It’s been my (very personal) experience, that once one’s addiction(s) get that out-of-hand, the LAW eventually AND always becomes involved. Rich!

  4. ShanKat says:

    I appreciate her consistency.

  5. Jacq says:

    She needs Courtney Love as a sober coach. She’s worked wonders for the masses! Those poor kids.

  6. Girl says:

    If you can’t stay off drugs for your children, and this goes for both these losers, what good are they? Those children need someone else parenting them while their parents sort their shif out.

  7. Tazina says:

    All that rehab for nothing? She must have zero will power. Her children don’t come first, obviously. Her addiction does. I hope she’s not a lost cause but it’s starting to look that way.

  8. teehee says:

    That explains so much. Youd have to be cokes out of your brain to find ANYTHING even REMOTELY interesting abotu that sack-of-snit Charlie Sheen.

  9. R.R. says:

    This story is comedy gold. Charlie Sheen’s ex? A small mountain of cocaine? A club named ESCOBAR? What could go wrong…

  10. lucy says:

    I feel so sorry for those two little boys. It would probably be hard for the grandparents to get full custody, but it’s the only shot they have, since both their parents are just awful.

  11. lisa says:

    This is the face of a person on drugs and in deep deep trouble.

    She needs help and needs serious intervention. It is sad. And I just have heartache for those little boys. This situation is going to change their lives. make them people they were not going to be. Both parents have issues. just sad

  12. Alejandro says:

    Her family needs to cut her off financially and the child support for the kids needs to be put in a trust fund administered by somebody else so Brooke has no access to it.

  13. Kelly says:

    Them’s is some crazy, crazy, crazy eyes.

  14. Turtle Dove says:

    Christmas is in the air. The stockings are hung on the chimney with care and Brooke is getting arrested for drugs and assault. What a festive time of year.

  15. truthful says:

    all that money being wasted and those poor twins, both parents are rich addicts.

  16. juju says:

    WHAT A LOSER !!!! SHAME ON U !!!

  17. HannahF says:

    This is so sad. I don’t think that there is any stronger love/bond than that which a mother has for her children. Brooke’s behavior illustrates the power of addiction wherein the need for a high outweighs everything else. She really needs a lot of help and for the sake of the children I hope she gets it.

    To me there is nothing funny about this situation and any jokes seem cruel. Ok–with the exception of the club name. Escobar? Really?

  18. danielle says:

    I actually just feel bad for her (and her sons) from what I’ve read she just sounds like a hardcore addict.

  19. serena says:

    She never learns does she?
    Poor babies, with two cracked-out parents, I worry for their future.

  20. Tazina says:

    I hope those boys can rise above the fact that they have two crap parents. What good is money when the people that go with it are utter losers who put drugs, booze and partying at the top of their priority list and being a good parent at the bottom?

  21. Jenn12 says:

    I remember thinking it was weird that blogs and magazines jumped down Denise Richards’ throat for accusing Charlie of anything while thinking it great that he was engaged before he even got divorced. Two drug addicts who found each other; those poor boys would be better off being raised by wolves. Total drug addicted messes. Won’t *someone* take them away from their parents? They don’t/can’t even hide their addictions.

  22. Dani says:

    Her kids should either be given to her parents or to Denise.

  23. I am Legend says:

    When Sheen first married her I remember thinking:

    “Why would such a nice, normal woman be interested in that creep”?

    Now all my questions have been answered and my assumptions questioned. (Except the creep part, Charlie is still a creep).

  24. Madisyn says:

    Like Blohan, this is a case of too much money, a lot of time on her hands, and more importantly, DOESN’T WANT TO QUIT!

  25. Peachy says:

    Poor Brooke, she always gets everything wrong… It was “Move that cone”, not “Move that coke”…. Geez.

  26. Beatriz says:

    When Charlie Sheen starts to look like the responsible parent next to you, you know you got a problem!

  27. Assistantrachel says:

    What a piece of sh-t! Those poor, poor boys…

  28. LeeLoo says:

    I always want to ask women like Brooke if it was worth having children. Woman like her use children like house decorations. The kids are just around to make the house pretty and care for them when it suits her. I hope someone steps in and keeps Bob and Max away from her. She obviously doesn’t have any intention of getting better and staying clean. I think she needs to stop having everyone come to her rescue. Maybe if she had to live like a real crack whore instead of a rich crack whore she would get serious about cleaning up. The choice is ultimately hers but everyone coming to her rescue is preveing her from actually having to make that decision.

    As for Charlie, his years of drug use have already taking their toll on him. He looks 10+ years older than he is. My opinion is it is already too late for Charlie. He may be sober, he may not be. I think the damage to his brain and body have already been done. There is really no going back for him.

  29. Anastasia says:

    Must soemthing terrible happen with the kids before anything is going to be done. Will Child Service not see this women is unstable…… Because in the end its the kids that get hurt in the end…..

  30. WillyNilly says:

    And coke is such a LAME drug. I can’t imagine being an addict of it. What a waste of time.

  31. Dibba says:

    Sorry but I hate her and him for what they have done and are doing to their children. I hope they both die.

  32. tsktsk says:

    When she was about to marry Charlie Sheen, she would talk SO much shit(non stop) about Denise and how she is a horrible mother for putting her kids on a reality show. Now look at her. SMDH. Those kids don’t stand a chance with f*cked up parents like these two.
