Report: LAPD Will Not Investigate Sheen; Questions Linger Over Sheen Sitcom
Charlie Sheen may have dodged another legal bullet. According to TMZ.com, the rehabbing "Two and a Half Men" star will not be prosecuted for alleged drug use. That's despite claims by several people who said he was using cocaine at a party at his home last week. Sheen entered rehab last Friday, a day after he was rushed to the hospital for severe stomach pains. He will reportedly remain in therapy for the next three months. That leaves some question marks hanging over the remaining episodes for the current season of his CBS sitcom. A spokesman for Warner Bros. said last Friday that 16 of the show's 24 scheduled episodes had been taped, with eight still remaining to be filmed. Sheen is one of the highest paid actors on television with reported annual earnings of 27-point-five-million dollars for his role on "Two and a Half Men." The show draws an estimated 15 million viewers each week, and is one of CBS' most-lucrative shows. CBS said last week that it was supportive of Sheen's decision to enter rehab.
