Charlie Sheen: Ex-Fiance Wins Restraining Order, Actor May Face Jail Time

Charlie Sheen can no longer have contact with his former fiancee, Scottine Ross (Brett Rossi), at least for now. On Friday, she was granted a temporary domestic violence restraining order against the actor after her initial temporary restraining order expired on the same day.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the restraining order comes only a few days after a statement by the Los Angeles Police Department on Wednesday, stating that Sheen, 50, was under investigation for reportedly threatening Ross. According to Ross’ attorney, David Ring, Ross heard a 35-minute recording between a woman and a man she believes to be Sheen. The man in the recording said that he’d rather pay $20,000 to have Ross kicked in the head as opposed to settling with her in court.

“This piece of s–t needs to [be] f—–g buried. It’s treason. You know what treason is? It’s punishable by death…. I’d rather spend $20,000 to have her head kicked in.”

Ring stated that Ross fears for her safety and feels that Sheen is capable of violence against her if given the chance.

“Fearing for her safety, the LAPD was contacted, and she got a protective order to keep Sheen away. She knows what he is capable of … she was scared for her life.”

Ross sued Sheen last December, citing assault and battery, false imprisonment, emotional distress, and negligence stemming from Sheen’s alleged failure to tell her he was HIV positive. She also claims that the actor assaulted her, even going as far as holding an unloaded gun to her head. Yet, Martin D. Singer, Sheen’s lawyer, wrote that Ross is fabricating her story and that if anyone was assaulted, it was Sheen.

“He never kicked, choked, dragged, shook, or struck [her] and he never threatened to kill her or forced her to have an abortion, as she wildly alleges.”

Ring said that the restraining order temporarily prevents Sheen from coming within 100 feet of Ross at her home, workplace, or in her car. It also orders him not to threaten, stalk, harass, or attack his former fiance. The protective order is in effect at least until March 28, 2017, when the next hearing is scheduled.

The secret recordings could possibly mean jail time for Sheen. In one portion of the audio, a man reported to be Sheen is heard telling a former lover that he didn’t tell her he was HIV positive because it was “none of her business.” Yet, California law mandates that it’s against the law to “willfully expose yourself to another person if you are afflicted with a disease that is contagious, infectious or communicable.”

When the woman questioned why he would keep such important information from her, Sheen responded.

“OK, well, every time I tell somebody, they f—–g took money from my children and nothing happened to them, OK?”

The chilling statement goes directly against what Sheen told the Today show’s Matt Lauer last November, when he appeared on the show to come clean about his health. When Lauer questioned whether Sheen told each and every partner about his HIV diagnosis prior to engaging in any sexual activity, Sheen replied, “Yes I have….no exception.”

Defense lawyer Anthony Brooklier said if Sheen willingly withheld information about his contagious disease to any of his partners, he could face six months in county jail and a fine of $1,000 for each time he put his partners at risk of developing HIV.

“It’s the act of not informing them ahead of time that matters. Any reasonable analysis is he faces criminal liability because he didn’t inform her of the infection. In fact, as the tapes show, he told her it was none of her business. But it is her business. It’s her life.”

Psychotherapist Dr. Gilda Carle, of New York, reviewed the audio in its entirety and said that the comments are not only disturbing, but come from someone who seems extremely narcissistic.

“What he’s saying is extremely narcissistic– all about me, me, me. He’s turning it around so he becomes the victim. And it was all her fault.”

Charlie Sheen has yet to comment on the restraining order or the audio recording. The tabloid publication that obtained the audio refuses to hand it over the Los Angeles police, despite a search warrant being granted.
