Charlie Sheen Charged With Assault
Charlie Sheen was charged Monday with a felony menacing charge and two misdemeanors, third-degree assault and criminal mischief, for assaulting his wife on Christmas Day.
The judge lifted the restraining order so that Sheen could go home to his wife, Brooke Mueller, and the couple's two sons. Mueller's lawyer, Yale Galanter, told PEOPLE, "Charlie and Brooke kissed and hugged and looked pretty happy to get beyond this hurdle. They are on their way home to Los Angeles together."
Sheen's lawyer Richard Cummins told PEOPLE, "They finally got their restraining order lifted. They're finally able to communicate. You can imagine how hard it is to be married and not have any communication for some time. They're heading out to California so they can they work on their issues between them, and take care of their children and move forward with their lives."
Galanter also told PEOPLE, "We will have to see what happens down the road. But for now we are glad to move on from the holiday issues. We will see where the next few weeks takes us."
Good luck to the couple.
