    Charlie Sheen was here for his “Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option Show,” which, according to several reports, was a complete bomb in Detroit Saturday night.

    People booed, even heckled Sheen, and many of them just walked out.

    According to TMZ, Sheen started that show with a Q&A, fielding audience questions about his favorite porn stars, and making jokes about crack cocaine. As the audience turned against him, though, he got combative, pointing out that he has an app on the iTunes store, and the crowd, he said, did not.

    Detroit TV station KTTC reported people were shouting “refund!” as they left in droves.

    One woman who paid $150 for two tickets told the station, "I was hoping for something. I didn't think it would be this bad."

    USAToday was Tweeting from inside the show, and painted an ugly picture.

    "Sheen has lost control of the crowd. He left the stage and ordered some music. Rapper onstage now."

    But the music failed to win the crowd back for Sheen, who only returned to the stage after the house lights had gone up, to thank those who had stayed.

    Sheen reportedly recovered in Chicago Sunday night. It was the second stop on what is slated to be a 20-city tour.
