Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen’s problems continued Friday, as the actor reported his four-door Mercedes stolen and officials found it — at the bottom of a 100-foot cliff in Sherman Oaks, California.
“It was nice to have police come to my house and for once and I didn’t have to leave with them,” Sheen told The Insider.
Sheen told The Insider he worked Thursday until 8 p.m. before going to bed at 10:30 p.m. He said he was woken up by a call from his auto security company, OnStar, that his car had been in an accident. He said he peered out the window of his Mulholland Estates home to see the car was missing.
Police said OnStar called 911 and reported that air bags had been deployed, along with relaying the physical location of the car.
More than 30 firefighters and two helicopter crews were dispatched to the scene, Los Angeles Fire Department Erik Scott said.
A search and rescue mission for any possible victims involved in the wreck was ongoing Friday; police reported no one had been found as of sunrise.
An LAPD spokesman said the case “is being investigated as an auto theft.”
The car-off-the-cliff is just the latest headache for the actor, who was arrested Christmas Day in Aspen, Colorado in connection with two domestic violence-related felony charges. He will appear in Pitkin County Courthouse February 8 to address the incident.
