On December 25, 2009, Charlie Sheen allegedly held a knife to wife Brooke Mueller's throat and said: I'll kill you.
A one-time occurrence from a (possibly) cocaine-fueled, troubled actor? Not exactly, new court documents reveal.
According to TMZ, Sheen's ex-wife Denise Richards might testify in the comedian's criminal case next month. The disturbing reason?
The district attorney is interested in a declaration Richards signed (under penalty of perjury) on December 30, 2005. On that day, she got a restraining order against the Two and a Half Men star and swore the following in court:
In the middle of an argument, Denise was holding her and Charlie's daughter Lola. From there, Sheen "pushed me, shoving me with his two hands between my shoulders. I was forced backwards and tripped over one of the children's toys and fell on the floor with Lola."
Under oath, Richards said her husband screamed: "I hope you f-cking die, bitch... You are f-cking with the wrong guy."
Sheen denied this allegation at the time, but a prior incident of wife-threatening won't bode well for the actor. If subpoenaed, Richards will testify about this exchange in a Colorado trial, where Sheen faces a felony charge of menacing.
It sounds as though the nickname given to Sheen's iconic Major League character ("Wild Thing") applies to the actor, as well.
