Charlie Sheen, winning; Washington, D.C. Police Department, losing.
In an effort to make his Violent Torpedo of Truth show Tuesday night in D.C. the actor received police escorts from the airport to Constitution Hall – and RadarOnline.com has learned the police escort was not authorized.
“in car with Police escort in front and rear! driving like someone’s about to deliver a baby! Cop car light #Spinning!” Sheen tweeted Tuesday night, including a photo that showed they were traveling at speeds of nearly 80-miles-per-hour.
“It is under investigation,” Officer Paul Metcalf of the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department told RadarOnline.
“I don’t know the circumstances as to why though.”
According to D.C. Police, escorts are typically reserved for the president, foreign dignitaries, diplomats and top federal officials – not celebrities.
“Yeah, we had a police escort. We ran more red lights than Brooke Mueller heading to a pawn shop,” Sheen told reporters once he arrived at the venue.
Council member Phil Mendleson heads up the committee that oversees public safety in D.C., but calls for a comment have not yet been returned.
