Brooke Mueller 911 call appears to be damaging enough evidence against Charlie Sheen, as the actor awaits a February 8 hearing regarding assault charges against him.

But that’s almost nothing compared to an affidavit written by Colorado police officer Rick Magnuson, who was on the Christmas Eve scene at the Sheen’s rented Aspen residence. In the document, Magnuson says Sheen held a knife to Mueller’s throat and threatened her life.

In disturbing detail, this is how the officer recounts went down at the home:

  • When cops arrived, Sheen was in a bedroom and Mueller was in the kitchen.
  • Magnuson accompanied Sheen into the basement, where the latter explained his recent marital problems and said his wife “abuses alcohol.”
  • The argument started at 3:30 a.m. because Mueller grew jealous when Sheen “shared a song for his daughter whom he fathered with another woman.” The actor said she threatened to divorce him and take the kids.
  • Both sides screamed and slapped, according to Sheen, who admitted to breaking his wife’s glasses in front of her. He said he never pushed, hit or used a knife against her.
  • Sheen admitted he possessed a four-inch knife that was on the premises. When Magnuson discovered it inside Sheen’s bag, the blade was unlocked in the “open” position.
  • Mueller confirmed that she and Sheen argued and that she mentioned a divorce. At that, she said Sheen grabbed her by the upper part of her throat while straddling her on the bed, pulled out a knife, held it to her throat and said: “You better be in fear. If you tell anybody, I’ll kill you… I have ex-police I can hire who know how to get the job done and they won’t leave any trace.”
  • Magnuson observed “red marks on the upper part of the front of her neck” and took Sheen into custody.
