Los Angeles Police Department officers paid yet another visit to troubled actor Charlie Sheen's home on Thursday evening as part of an investigation into a suspected violation of the temporary restraining order connected to the former "Two and a Half Men" star's ex-wife, Brooke Mueller.
Based on a tip that Sheen was in possession of weapons and ammunition, police searched the home for three hours but did not arrest Sheen after carting away an antique rifle from the 1800s and some bullets, according to TMZ. The police visit reportedly came after cops received a tip earlier in the day that Sheen had threatened to harm himself with a firearm; the actor is prohibited from possessing weapons as part of the restraining order.
An LAPD spokeswoman told Us magazine, "We were there to investigate the possible violation of a restraining order. It came to our attention that Mr. Charlie Sheen is a registered owner of firearms so we were making sure there were no firearms or ammunition in the home." Spokeswoman Norma Eisenman would not discuss whether any firearms were found in the home and said Sheen cooperated with police.
As the raid was under way, news helicopters broadcast footage of Sheen — who filed a $100 million lawsuit against his former "Men" bosses earlier in the day — calmly eating his dinner in his backyard. He later tweeted, "All good here on homefront. All reports are false. I'll explain more very soon." He later added, "The LAPD were AWESOME. Absolute pros! They can protect and serve this Warlock anytime!"
Just before the police action, Sheen revealed some news to his followers, confirming that he will be launching a Conan O'Brien-style road show in the near future entitled My Violent Torpedo of Truth/ Defeat Is Not an Option Show.
The first two confirmed dates for the outing are April 2 at the Fox Theatre in Detroit and April 3 at the Chicago Theatre in Chicago. Tickets for the shows go on sale Saturday, but at press time Sheen had not announced the lineup of performers for the events.
The promotional description of the show reads like one of Sheen's many recent online rants. "I'm going on the road. LIVE. Will there be surprises? Will there be guests? Will there be mayhem? Will you ask questions? Will you laugh? Will you scream? Will you know the truth? WILL THERE BE MORE?!?! This IS where you will hear the REAL story from the Warlock. Bring it. I dare you to keep up with me."
