Now that the Charlie Sheen domestic abuse case is closed- Sheen basically walked away smelling like a rose once more – there are more details being released about the now-infamous Christmas eve/day brawl that resulted in Sheen’s arrest. According to the police report, Sheen and estranged wife Brooke Mueller erupted into a vicious argument after Charlie revealed that he and one of his daughters with ex-wife Denise Richards have a special song – Train’s “Drops of Jupiter.”

Charlie Sheen claims the infamous Christmas Day incident with his wife Brooke Mueller all started after she learned that Charlie and one of his daughters shared “an affinity” for a song by the band Train, this according to new legal documents obtained by TMZ.

The Aspen Police Department just released the full police report from the incident, in which the arresting officer states that Charlie explained what happened before the alleged assault.

In the report the officer states, “[Sheen] … explained that he and the daughter share an affinity for both astronomy and the song ‘Drops of Jupiter’ from the band ‘Train.'”

“[Sheen] added that he bought two tracking telescopes; one for his daughter and one for him so they could both look at the same point in the universe at the same time, as a way of staying connected.”

According to the report, Sheen told the officer that “Mueller was jealous of this relationship with his daughter. He stated that Mueller said, ‘you have a song with you share with your daughter, but not one with me?'”

Sheen told the cops the argument escalated and they eventually started to “slap” at “each others hands or wrists.”

Sheen was eventually arrested for 2nd degree assault, menacing, criminal mischief and domestic violence.

Train front man Pat Monahan was asked about the incident, and here’s what he had to say:

The singer from Train claims he’s happy Charlie Sheen and his daughter could bond over their hit “Drops of Jupiter” — even though Sheen told cops the song played a role in the Christmas Day domestic dispute with his wife.

Patrick Monahan just took to the band’s Twitter, saying “I’m pretty sure that Drops of Jupiter is a positive part of Charlie Sheen and his daughter’s relationship. Just gonna look at it that way.”

As we previously reported, Charlie told cops that Brooke got jealous and violent when she found out he and his daughter had a special song — “Drops of Jupiter.” Brooke’s mom called the story, “Silly.”

I’m dying to know what Denise Richards has to say about all of this. Forgive me if I think Charlie Sheen is full of it. Notice how he conveniently left out the part about holding a knife to his wife’s throat and threatening to kill her. The guy is a master manipulator and has stopped at nothing to smear Mueller’s reputation since this incident was made public. Do I believe that Brooke harbored jealousy over his older children? Absolutely. Do I believe that they are both drug addicts who got all hopped up on various substances and then fought like rabid weasels? Yes, I do. But his claim that his daughter, Sam, loves astronomy and telescopes? Please. The kid is six years old. Pardon me if I don’t buy that she’s so into astronomy that she requires a tracking telescope, let alone knows how to use one. Most six year old kids have “an affinity” for Spongebob and nap time.

    Aww, and here I thought it was fueled by them both being drunks. Who knew?

  2. TQB says:

    I never thought I’d say this, but I feel bad for Train.

  3. lrm says:

    Um, 6 yr olds are pretty much over naptime…and sponge bob could take a backseat to an interest like astronomy, if your kid is not a t.v. head/matrix kid.

    It’s insulting that people have such low expectations for children-like all they want/need/are capable of is being served up a plate of entertainment 24/7.

    My child and other children i’ve known [not all, but many], are quite bright and engaged in the world, and most 6 yr olds in today’s world have started to read anyway…so it’s not strange that they might be interested in an-gasp-intellectual concept!

    As for the song, love it, and love train’s lyrics in general. they’re good. like goo-goo dolls. good. solid pop rock band.

    but this story doesn’t make me think any better of sheen. he’s gross.

  4. Me says:

    I think you’re dumbing down our youth a bit. My seven and nine year olds are obsessed with science and nature, and they also have a telescope (and use it) along with several other pieces of scientific equipment. Judging by their friends, they’re not the exception either. They left Spongebob and naps around age four.

    I still think both Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller are losers though.

  5. Molly says:

    Please don’t view this as a defense of Charlie Sheen, whom I think is a total scumbag. But let’s pretend for a moment (and I mean “pretend”) this is true: you found out your husband has a sweet, special song with his daughter and that they stargaze to stay close to each other and your response is instant and petty jealousy? Brooke has children with this man–wouldn’t you be pleased at what a sweet gesture this is to a young girl who doesn’t get to see her father that often? Of course, like I said, Charlie is mostly likely making all of this up.

  6. Mairead says:

    They fought over a trite and annoying song? Gawd these two deserve each other.

    And I don’t see why a child of 6 wouldn’t have a keen interest in astronomy. I sometimes do educational workshops with kids and some of them have an encyclopedic knowledge of certain aspects of subjects that interest them, like dinosaurs or medieval knights. School curriculums in many countries are deliberately dumbing down under the guise of “making things less knowledge-heavy” so that the less capable children don’t feel bad about themselves; there’s no need for us to buy into it as well.

    Just on the telescope itself (if they exist) it’s not really my area, but astronomy-enthusiasts I’ve known have all said that for the amateur, a decent pair of binoculars is plenty. However tracking telescopes are handy for the absolute beginner (or child) as they tell you exactly the coordinates you’re looking at (for Dad of the Century up there to hone in on what Daughter is looking at for example); and it can help locate a certain spot/constellation/planet especially in areas of medium-high light pollution (nearly every developed country nowadays)

  7. K-MAC says:

    I love how Sheen makes himself out to be the victim. Sadly, it is often the case with people who are that manipulative. Do I think Brooke has problems, yes, but this guy is a real CLASS A jerk.

  8. MeMyself says:

    My daughter will be 6 on the 23rd and loves the history of space travel, British literature and wrote letters to Miep Gies.
    And she hasn’t had a nap in years.

    But Charlie is still a pig.

  9. girl says:

    Sheen will never smell like anythig other than rancid sh!t to me. What this bastard has gotten away with time and again is absolutely disgusting. I will not watch a tv show or movie I know to be directly associated with him. Ever.

  10. J says:

    Charlie only loves Charlie. He can’t handle women once the initial glow wears off. He keeps making kids & ignoring them, loosing interest in the mothers as soon they have given birth.
    Like Elvis, can’t handle being with a “Mom.”

  11. mimi says:

    not defending charlie, but my sister-in-law is crazy jealous like that.

  12. Kitten says:

    I didn’t think I could hate Sheen any more than I already do but the fact that he’s a Train fan?? This man is pure evil..

  13. LindyLou says:

    What I find really disgusting (besides what posters are mentioning above) is the fact that this POS put a knife to someone’s throat and walked away with no jail time. WTH??? Celebrity justice is overwhelmingly unfair. If Sheen were an “average Joe” he’d probably get several months (at least) behind bars.

  14. RobN says:

    Not excusing Sheen for one minute, but it’s the wife who blew a .14 on Christmas morning and blew her top because he is trying to have a relationship with his other kids. He may be a scumbag, but she’s no better, and at least when they were together they were doing the world a favor by not dating anybody else.

  15. TG says:

    If Brooke is so jealous of Charlie’s relationship with his other children why didn’t she find a man without kids? What a loser. Both of them that is.

  16. Mavourneen says:

    Charlie Sheen is a pig and they way he treats his women and children is revolting.

    But I have a 7 year-old and I agree with everyone here that you’re dumbing them down. My daughter reads and writes and speaks 2 languages and is planning on being an aeronautics engineer. Astronaut is not enough, she wants to design what she’ll fly 😉

  17. scorpiogal says:

    I second what all the other parents are saying- my 4-year-old daughter is into astronomy (and so NOT into cartoons and naptime). I can absolutely see a 6-yr-old having a keen interest. Kids go hard on subjects that interest them, and their brains are sponges.

  18. Jen says:

    Gee, he could have gotten her a Motorola Droid phone. It has Google Sky Map. It would also allow her to call the bambulance to come after her nut bag dad when he flips out (snicker).

    As for six year olds not being interested in anything but naps and Spongebob, that’s not true. Sorry. I’m with the other parents on this one.

  19. BethL says:

    Another in agreement that kids at that age are interesting in more than watching tv. TV and video games are not an issue for another few years. My son is seven and he knows everything about dinosaurs. Young kids get excited and obsessed by everything.

    Heavens knows I hate to nit pick or be the spelling police, but I must point out that you forgot to put in the letters ‘SH’ before the ‘IT’ at the end of that comment. 🙂

  21. original kate says:

    like these two really need an excuse to fight.

  22. Majosha says:

    I’m relieved to see that so many other people here disagree with the suggestion that six-year-olds are more interested in SpongeBob than discovering astronomy and/or any other educational pursuits. Now a six year old whose parents simply plop her in front of the TV all day may very well eschew astronomy for cartoons, but the bottom line is that children WANT to learn. They crave knowledge, and it’s up to us as parents to encourage their curiosities!

    Ps: Train sucks, and so does Charlie.

  23. Kath says:

    I’m surprised nobody has mentioned the fact Charlie has a 20-something year old daughter named Cassandra. This could be a connection with her, and Brooke could be jealous of the attention that someone close in age to herself is getting from her husband.

  24. Persistent Cat says:

    I agree with the other posters, not about kids because I don’t care, but more importantly, Train sucks. Hard. Nothing more annoying than a man smiling when he sings. Makes me want to punch him in the face.

    Goo Goo Dolls suck too.

  25. dovesgate says:

    Ugh… I might go ballistic over my husband sharing that song with another woman but his daughter?! Thats insane. I don’t think I believe that.

  26. Jazz says:

    I hate that bloody song.

  27. Mimi says:

    Team Charlie, she knew what she was getting into. She’s a zero.

  28. dan says:

    What upsets me about this and other celebrities is that they give alcoholics/drug addicts (no difference but society hasn’t caught up yet) a bad name. As a person who definitely is or was an alcoholic/drug addict I never beat my wife or kids, I paid my taxes, coached my kids Tball, softball, basketball teams, etc. and my wife will tell you that she could never marry anyone else. Bottom line is I’m a decent man..not a saint (took a long time to get here after abusive childhood). BUT i did live a life of quiet desperation, drinking/drugging myself into a stupor until I couldn’t take it anymore. And guys like this perpetuate the myth that we’re all self absorbed moral degenerates. In the same breath, Robin Williams doesn’t help things either with his latest standup. I consider the guy an immense talent but his latest act in which he describes his experiences also perpetuates the myth. I’ve always been fascinated with Sheen because I never understood his popularity and yet it continues. 2 1/2 men is just one stale, predictable, cliched, one-liner after another. Half the time he looks like he’s reading his lines. Oh well, life goes on…
