Police had responded to 911 call early Christmas morning.
“Carlos Irwin Estevez, also known as the actor Charles I. Sheen, was brought to the Pitkin County Colorado Jail for booking and incarceration following his arrest by the Aspen Police Department,” sheriff’s patrol director Jeff Lumsden said in a statement.
Police said the victim was not hospitalized, and they did not release a name. TMZ is reporting — from an unnamed source — that the woman involved was Sheen’s third wife, Brooke Mueller. The actor married the real estate investor in 2008.
Sheen’s publicist, Stan Rosenfield, cautioned that “appearance and reality can be as different as night and day. It would benefit ever
yone not to jump to any conclusion,” People magazine reported.
TMZ also is reporting that Sheen told police Mueller was the aggressor.
Sheen had gone to Aspen to spend Christmas with Mueller, according to RadarOnline — the site said Brooke had rented a home in Colorado for about three months while Charlie stayed in Los Angeles.
Sheen was arrested on felony charges of second-degree assault and menacing, and a misdemeanor count of criminal mischief, said Aspen police spokeswoman Stephanie Dasaro.
He will be held without bail in Colorado until he appears in court; the court system is closed for Christmas, and no date for his appearance has been set.
