Less than a year after he was charged with threatening his wife at knifepoint, Charlie Sheen is apparently back in trouble. Numerous sources are reporting that the ‘Two and a Half Men’ star was found naked and drunk Tuesday morning after trashing his room at New York’s Plaza Hotel.

According to RadarOnline, Sheen had been on a cocaine bender for days when he couldn’t find his wallet and flew into a rage at the unidentified prostitute who was with him.


The statement from Sheen’s publicist, Stan Rosenfield, offered a somewhat different take: ‘What we are able to determine is that Charlie had an adverse allergic reaction to some medication and was taken to the hospital, where he is expected to be released tomorrow.’

It’s unclear what effect the latest troubles will have on ‘Two and a Half Men,’ which dodged a bullet earlier this year after Sheen struck a probation deal and avoided serious jail time in the spousal abuse case. Production is on a scheduled break this week, but delays could result if Sheen’s treatment takes longer than expected or he winds up charged for the hotel incident.

A spokesman for Warner Bros., which makes the show, declined to comment.
