Rick Calamaro, the former assistant and close friend of Charlie Sheen's who many believed took part in the actor's past drug binges, has been found dead.
As first reported by TMZ, Calamaro's body was found in his Los Angeles apartment yesterday, although it's believed he'd been deceased for many days.
Moreover, according to authorities, "numerous pain medications and an open bottle of alcohol," were also found at the scene.
Calamaro was a club promoter who befriended the actor many years ago.
He accompanied Sheen to New York City for the infamous October 2010 incident with Capri Anderson at the Plaza Hotel, where police were called, Anderson ended up locked in a bathroom and Sheen ended up in the hospital.
No word yet from Sheen's camp, but our thoughts go out to Calamaro's family.
