Brooke Mueller – Brooke Mueller, the ex-wife of Charlie Sheen, has been arrested for assault and cocaine possession in Aspen, Colorado. She faces 10 years if convicted on the drug arrest.
Officers were doing a routine walk through of the local nightclub “Belly Up Aspen” when a woman approached them with a complaint that the actress assaulted her. Police searched for the former Mrs. Sheen and found where she was staying.
Mueller was arrested for the assault, but then officers found cocaine in her possession with intent to distribute, which is a felony.
Mueller posted bond of $11,000 and was released with a District Court date of December 19, 2011.
“How do you help someone like Brooke? Her parents even moved to Los Angeles to take care of her and help her take care of her kids, and that didn’t even help. With this latest development, her friends are beyond caring anymore,” a friend close to Mueller said in a statement.
Back in 2001, Mueller was arrested in Florida for cocaine possession, but the case was later dropped after it was determined she had no drugs in her system.
Prior to that, Mueller admitted to drinking wine, taking Vicodin, smoking marijuana and using cocaine after she was arrested on DUI charges in Palm Beach, Fla., in 1996.
News of of her latest bust comes after her numerous rehab stints this year (and last year), in which she claimed she was trying to beat her addiction for good.
Mueller last headed to an undisclosed rehab facility in Mexico seeking an alternative cure for her addiction problems in the form of Ibogaine, which is used to treat addiction to alcohol, cocaine and methamphetamine in other countries, including Mexico and Canada. The procedure is banned in the United States.
Just a couple of weeks before her trip to Mexico, Mueller had successfully completed a 45-day outpatient treatment program and was said to be doing “amazingly well.”
