Charlie Sheen pleaded not guilty in an Aspen, Colorado, courtroom on Monday. RadarOnline.com was there as the Two and a Half Men star was arraigned on charges relating to an alleged domestic violence incident on Christmas Day.
Sheen, flanked by his legal team and publicist, arrived for his arraignment looking relatively refreshed and upbeat, throwing up a peace sign as he made his way into the building.
Richard Cummins, Sheen’s lawyer, entered the not guilty plea. A three-day trial was scheduled to begin on July 21.
The actor was arrested on December 25 while on vacation in the ski town after his wife Brooke Mueller called 911 and said Sheen had threatened her with a knife during an argument.
Sheen faces a felony charge of menacing and two misdemeanor in connection with the incident.
