When you see those photos, it changes everything. You see the pictures, you get it. You really get it.
So said Valerie McFarlane to E! News this week. The arresting officer on the night Charlie Sheen allegedly assaulted wife Brooke Mueller, she was fired from her job for parlaying this inside knowledge into favors from a reporter.
But McFarlane has gone on record about the incident because she wants the public to understand just how much of a monster Sheen truly is. Or to garner more headlines and attention, the actor's lawyer says in response.
Says Yale Galanter, in the worst defense of a client we've ever heard: "America should just enjoy watching Two and a Half Men and let it go."
Seriously, dude, who has ever enjoyed watching Two and a Half Men?!?Sheen's attorney admits that the sitcom star acted inappropriately on that December night, telling E! News: "That was a private incident between a husband and wife. By pleading guilty, he admitted that something happened that shouldn't have."
But Galanter also wants to remind readers that McFarlane was let go from her job and describes her as "very hypocritical." She has "misrepresented the facts," the lawyer states.
"She's the reason the case went down the toilet," he added. "She has so much baggage she'd have to pay triple at the airport."
Wait... she's the reason the case went down the toilet?!? Isn't that an admission that Sheen deserved a much harsher penalty for his violent actions?
