Sheen court appearance in Aspen postponed again

Aspen Times staff report
Aspen, CO Colorado

ASPEN – Charlie Sheen’s scheduled court hearing in Aspen Friday has been postponed to Feb. 8 – the date the actor was already expected to make his initial court appearance on charges stemming from a domestic dispute.

Judge James Boyd on Thursday signed an order vacating Friday’s proceedings, at which time Sheen and his wife were to ask the judge to throw out or revise a protection order that prevents the couple from contacting each other. That protection order will now be considered Feb. 8. Such protection orders are standard in cases of alleged domestic violence.

Judge Boyd has already modified the protection order slightly, on Thursday signing an emergency order that allows Sheen to visit his wife, Brooke, in a California hospital where she was placed in intensive care with a high fever, following oral surgery.

Friday’s hearing was originally scheduled Wednesday in Pitkin County District Court in Aspen, but was rescheduled to Friday because Brooke was to undergo the surgery. Her subsequent hospitalization led attorneys to seek postponement of the hearing yet again.

Sheen, 44, was arrested Christmas Day in Aspen after allegedly threatening his wife at a West End home where they were vacationing. Police arrested the actor on suspicion of felony menacing, second-degree assault and criminal mischief.

He will now appear in court Feb. 8 on those charges.

Charlie Sheen stars in the CBS television comedy “Two and a Half Men.”
