Charlie Sheen bails out Brooke Mueller

2011-12-05 20:01

Los Angeles - Charlie Sheen reportedly paid ex-wife Brooke Mueller's bail.

Reality TV star Brooke was arrested and charged with intent to distribute drugs and assault on Friday in Aspen, Colorado, and it was her former spouse who came to her rescue and posted her $11 000 bond.

Brooke - who has two-year-old twins, Bob and Max, with the former Two and a Half Men actor - had originally called her parents to help her, but they refused.

A source told RadarOnline.com: "They actually wanted to leave her in jail.

"Brooke's family is done with her, she has to get straight or she is going to die."

Six years in prison

Brooke - who has battled drink and drug addictions in the past and has received treatment in rehab - must return for a District Court hearing on December 19.

She was arrested on a felony charge of possession of cocaine with intent to distribute and a misdemeanour charge of assault.

If she is found guilty in the drug charge, Brooke could face up to six years in prison.

A police spokesperson said: "When someone is found to have more than a certain amount of the drug they are charged with intent to distribute."

Earlier this year, Brooke and Charlie - who share custody of the children - rekindled their romance but they soon split again and she moved out of his Los Angeles home.
