Los Angeles police showed up at the Sherman Oaks home of Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen early Tuesday, only hours after firefighters recovered the actor's  luxury  Mercedes-Benz  automobile, which was found abandoned down a ravine off Los Angeles' Mulholland Drive for the second time in five months, has learned.

Los Angeles police Sgt. John Buckley said the car belongs to Sheen, who told authorities he left it in his driveway about 4 p.m. PT Monday. A security guard reported the crash shortly before 3 a.m. PT Tuesday, has learned. The car's engine was still running when it was recovered, according to  firefighters combing the area, but no one was believed to have been inside when the vehicle went off the road.

As you'll remember, a similar occurrence happened in the wee hours of February 5, 2010, when the actor reported his four-door Mercedes stolen and officials found it -- at the bottom of a 100-foot cliff in Sherman Oaks, California. A Bentley also located in that incident was owned by Kenneth Todd and Lisa Vanderpump, owners of Beverly Hills' Villa Blanca restaurant.

An eyewitness at the scene said Tuesday's incident was like "deja vu" to the previous one.


The latest car-off-the-cliff fiasco is just another headache for the embattled actor, whose name has been a tabloid mainstay since he was arrested on Christmas Day 2009 in Aspen, Colorado on domestic violence charges. He is still working out a plea deal and it will likely include Charlie going to jail. In the meantime his wife, Brooke Mueller, has moved out of Charlie’s Beverly Hills mansion and into a Los Feliz home, and telling friends that she's moving on.
