Charlie Sheen allegedly told a man he was going to gun him down with a Super 90 semi-automatic shotgun.
In an October 18 police report filing, the unnamed man claimed to be a former associate associate of Charlie Sheen.
The alleged victim told police that the Anger Management star sent the death threat in a text message to a mutual friend.
Sheen promise to kill the man with the Super 90 came a short time after the two men had a falling out. According to the victim, Sheen send the following text message:
“I’ll blow his head off with my Super 90.”
Police are currently investigating the case, although, without Charlie Sheen walking around with a Super 90 on his hip, it will likely end with a warning, perhaps a restraining order.
A source close to Sheen tells TMZ:
“The accuser is a dishonorably discharged military person with multiple probation violations who is trying to shake him down for money.”
Following the release of his new show, Charlie Sheen appeared to be on a path to recovery. As we recently reported that path to recovery may have been disrupted by heavy cocaine use and new get togethers with various strippers, porn stars, and escorts.
Sheen is currently signed on to complete at least 100 episodes of Anger Management for FX. However, his last very public breakdown ultimately led to his dismissal from Two and a Half Men; it will be interesting to see if he can hold himself together enough to actually stay on his new hit show.
