WASHINGTON - The domestic dispute for which Charlie Sheen was arrested on Christmas has already put his career in danger and now reports suggest that the scuffle could cost the actor and his wife Brook Mueller custody of their twin sons.
HollywoodLife.com reports that Sheen and wife are being investigated by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, which could temporarily remove nine-month-old twins Max and Bob from their custody.
After the dispute, when Mueller alleged that Sheen attacked her with a knife and threatened to kill her, DCFS was informed about the situation by Colorado police and immediately began an investigation into the matter.
The ‘Two and a Half Men’ star was arrested on suspicion of menacing, second-degree assault and criminal mischief.
Sheen has denied threatening his wife with a knife or choking her; he told officers that he and his wife had slapped each other on the arms.
However, the 44-year-old actor’s denial likely won’t be sufficient for DCFS.
Sources say that in all likelihood, a third party will move in with the family.
“It could be a grandmother, mother, sister, anyone with a clean record that is cleared by the court,” Fox News quoted the source as saying. (ANI)
