Colorado Theater Says Charlie Sheen's Lawyers Asked About Nonprofit Work

Sheen, who recently agreed to return to the CBS hit "Two and a Half Men," was initially charged with second degree assault and menacing in the Christmas Day incident.

Attorneys for Charlie Sheen have approached a Colorado nonprofit theater about having the actor do public service work as part of a plea deal in his domestic violence case, the theater's artistic director said Friday.

Sheen's duties, if the deal is approved, would include teaching a class and helping with Theatre Aspen's three summer shows, Paige Price said.

"I certainly think he has the career credentials," she said. "And he could possibly teach a class or do question-and-answer sessions. If this could benefit the Theatre Aspen's actors or students, I would certainly be amenable to it."

Pitkin County Chief Deputy District Attorney Arnold Mordkin said earlier this week that prosecutors have reached an agreement with Sheen over menacing, criminal mischief and assault charges stemming from an argument with his wife on Christmas Day at an Aspen home.

A police officer's arrest affidavit quoted Brooke Sheen as saying the actor pinned her on a bed while holding a knife to her throat and making a threat.

Sheen, the star of the hit CBS show "Two and a Half Men," has said he didn't threaten or hit his wife. But he told police that he broke two pairs of her eyeglasses in front of her.

Mordkin said Friday that he expected a judge to approve the deal Monday. But he said he couldn't provide details on the agreement, other than to confirm there have been discussions about having Sheen do "useful public service" with the theater.

It's unknown whether Sheen would serve jail time as part of the deal.

Sheen's agent, Stan Rosenfield, told The Associated Press he couldn't comment on a proposed deal "out of respect to the court until the judge rules."

Mordkin said Sheen is being treated like any other Aspen resident charged with the same crime.

"He's really not getting anything different than the average person under similar circumstances would receive," he said.
