Charlie Sheen got a rude awakening this morning when he discovered that his Mercedes Sedan had been stolen from his home. Things only got worse when the vehicle was found in a ravine.
LAPD Officer Wendy Reyes confirmed to CNN that "the vehicle found on a hillside below Mulholland Drive belongs to Charlie Sheen." Reyes added, "The vehicle was reported stolen by the actor.... They did not find anyone in or near the vehicle." Mulholland Drive is known for its sharp turns and winding roads.
The Los Angeles Fire Department tells CNN that "a cell phone caller told CHP that a vehicle had went over the side around 4:30 a.m." Sheen's representative tells CNN that "Charlie is fine, and the police are investigating."
Sheen is due in court on Monday in Aspen, Colorado for a hearing in the Christmas Day incident involving Sheen and his wife, Brooke Mueller. Sheen was arrested on charges of felony second-degree assault, felony menacing and a misdemeanor charge of criminal mischief. A protective order was also issued in the case.
ferris bueller's sister took it
I see all of the women haters being concerned about him. He did this for "good " publicity. Like I said in another post, he needs to be in prison for a LONG time, in general population. A visit from "Bubba" would let him know how all the women in his life felt when he came short of kiling them.
Can you take the keys out of that car while it's still in Neutral? If so could he have parked on the street and it just rolled away?
Just so you know, there is no such thing as a car that is IMPOSSIBLE to steal. Some cars are just more difficult than others, including these cars with so called "smart keys" and any of the other high tech gadgets and gizmos installed the keep your car from getting stolen.
Go Sheen! You rocks in Young Guns dude!
It does not say Charlie made the call. at 4am. learn to read.
Luxury cars built in the last 10 years are really hard to "steal" without the key. Electronic trasmitters to and from the key are need to get the engine to start.
This smells as fishy as the whole Tiger Woods affair.......
BTW Sheen should have been on celebrity rehab a long time ago for drug, alcohol, marriage and porn addictions.
i mean paparazzi, sorry
where's the paparatzi when you need them, shouldn't they have been following him or at least the car, ha ha ha
It was stolen. Anyone who missed it, there was another car stolen from a house in the same community and crashed in a similar fashion. The other car was another very expensive car that was stolen out of someone's driveway. No one is questioning them about whether or not they crashed their car... Leave him alone and let him deal with his own problems.
anyone else think that Sheen is going to be the next B-List actor to be on Dr. Drews Celebrity Rehab?
People generally don't survive a car crash down a 400 foot cliff so I doubt anyone was in the car. That car was pushed. What this story doesn't say but has been reported by other news outlets is that a few hours later a Bentley owned by actress Lisa Vanderpump was found in the same location – also unoccupied. Additionally there were 3 other cars near the location that were broken into.
To me that says something.
To NetWasteLand, if this is so trivial to you, what are you doing on this board? Hmmm??? Shouldn't you be on one of the More Important Story Boards?
He must have had one of the Kennedy's over for dinner.
I feel sorry for all of you with nothing to do other than to offer a thought on something so trivial. Who cares? It wasn't your car.
Could be his brother Emilio!
Mmm-hmmm. Sure. Gated community. Professional car thieves. (PCTs who drive over cliffs for . . . what? A thrill?) Oh, wait. They didn't HAVE to be professional car thieves; the car was in an open garage and the keys were in the ignition! A Hollywood stupidlebrity who leaves his garage open. No security system? With those precious twins in the house? You are so full of sheeiit, Charlie. (Hey coppers: Check his cell phone records. You can be sure someone got called to pick him up. Charlie's runnin' another scam on youse people.) I guess Denise was tellin' the truth all along.
Ask OJ what really happen with the car.
All high end cars have a chip in the key. It is not possible to start and steal these cars by connecting some wires like in 007 movies.
I am personally very sick of seeing this man get off easy with all of his addictions and drama. I don't know what happened with his vehicle and frankly don't care. But, I do hope his wife wakes up and realizes that she's living with an abusive alcoholic. Drunks don't change their ways and if they never have any consequences or the consequences are not severe enough, nothing will change. Does she really want to enable this man by sticking by him? What an embarrassment and how little shame old Charlie seems to have. I dated an alcoholic off/on for 2 years. He was never physically abusive but he could be verbally abusive which is also extremely bad. It's time women realize they can't change these men. I hope the wife gets into Al-Anon and realizes she doesn't need this user/abuser in her life anymore.
The Los Angeles Fire Department tells CNN that "a cell phone caller told CHP that a vehicle had went over the side around 4:30 a.m."
Learn to read people! It's clearly written right there in the article how it was reported and when.
And to those saying Mercedes are not easy cars to steal. It's obvious you don't know how and aren't professional thieves. ANY car can be stolen with the right knowledge; especially in California where luxury cars are in abundance.
i wake up by 4 a.m. every day, so i would know my car was missing. however, if i was a hollywood star and didn't have a job to be at, perhaps my security alarms woke me up that my car was being stolen or there was an intruder.
at any rate, i also wondered at the car getting stolen and ending up there. if somebody wanted his presumably high-end mercedes that badly, they would not have shoved it off a cliff. and unless there is a body inside, somebody did exactly that.
i'm wondering if he needs a little quick cash for the attorneys and reporting it stolen and then finding it crashed might bring a quick paycheck. 10% of that to the guy he asked to steal it.
this will work great until the thief comes back for more payment
i probably watch too much tv, but there's no irony here, since charlie currently is a 'tv star'
A lot of you bring up the "safety" of the gated-community. Ya think just because people are wealthy that a few of 'em don't a few screws loose as well? Me thinks a few loose-screwed teens in the lovely gated-community had a little of what they deemed fun, stole Charlie's car just 'cause it was Charlies, skidded in the rain and went into the ravine. It wasn't a "cliff" . . . it was a ravine, there's a difference and very much survivable without injuries. And these kid are probably sitting at home laughing about all the publicity of their stunt.
Could be, yanno!
he lives in a gated community above beverly hills. so how did a car theif get on the property, to steal his car? sounds real fishy to me.
You guys just need to talk about stuff which is not relevant to your life ... I guess one has enough going on in life why don't mind own business rather than being nosy in some ones personal life . He has stuff going on as we do , Appreciation is good as far as his work is concern but ....People Give him space ...........
how can you steal your own car? what a tool.
Yeah, we are too hard on the guy. Maybe some dude took it thinking there was something in it he wanted. It is bizarre no one was found around the scene. Upside down in a ravine looks like it was pushed there with no driver in it. The cops should be able to find some prints in it. Bizarre.
Those cars are close to impossible to open let alone turn it on. Sounds fishy........
No one around...sounds like Charlie got off the road "by mistake". Maybe he was texting........way to cover up another snafu.
Apparently Oh Charlie isn't very bright. According to the LA Times report – latimes.com/news/local/la-me-charlie-sheen6-2010feb06,0,1635031.story – he left his garage door open and his keys inside the car.Several other houses in the area within the gated community were also robbed. Was he hoping to get it stolen?
Concerning the "on-star" debate. CORRECT Mercedes Benz does not use On-Star, but it does use a service called "TeleAid" which is a service much like On-Star but commonly called by the incorrect name. SO yes it is possible for him to get the wake up call moments after the crash from his "TeleAid" service.
One more thing-I've been into his secured enclave for an xmas party and there is no way in h*** you would steal a car ought of there. The gate opens soooooo slowly to get out and the guard shack is right there.
Look, if onstar called me at 4 in the morning and told me my airbags had deployed, I'd say thank you, and go back to sleep.
Let the cops handle it. That's their job.
I'll say one thing for Charlie- he sure seems to know how to have a good time. Could you imagine partying with this guy?!
Charlie is a truth teller, just believe him. His sexy young date borrowed his car and old charlie forgot. Booze will make you forget stuff, uknow.
Other news reports state that multiple vehicles in the area had been broken into last night and that the police also found another very expensive car that was stolen last night crashed a few fundred feet away at the bottom of the same cliff. (actually a reporter spotted it first)
Looks like those saying bad things about Charlie were jumping to conclusions.
ONSTAR is not on Mercedes vehicles
Love all the responses but it would be nice if people did a little research before they just start jumping to conclusions. A call was placed to Charlie and the police through ONSTAR! Hello!
"I was awaken at 4:00 AM by Denise Richardson and Brooke Mueller who were punching me savagely and twisting the heck out of my leg. That is why I'm all beat up with this limp. To make things worse, I go out side and notice that someone stole my gd car!"
ha ha ha
For all you conspiracy theorists: A second car was found stolen and pushed over the edge in the same spot just hours later. I don't know why CNN did not include this in their report. The second car belonged to a neighbor of Charlie's and was also a high end vehicle.
I bet Alan borrowed it, and some sneaky girl stole it from him and pushed it over the cliff......oh wait, this is real life, not Two and a Half Men. I get so confused.
i guess he was wearing his hanes...
Ironic. I just watched a Two and a Half Men episode rerun when Charlie's Mercedes gets stolen. Not as funny when it happens for real.
I do roadside assistance for Mercedes. Trust me, they are not impossible to steal. Locksmiths can unlock them and reset the security system.
Was Tiger Woods driving it?
We have Health Care,Credit Cards,Banks,Insurance company's,Big Oil...trying to get into Our pockets and we are worry about Charlie....Charlie good luck get back with your wife,fix your car ,Continue with your great show..The company that cancel your ads sux,fruit the loom is better....
For the final time, On Star had NOTHING to do with the recovery of this vehicle. Connected Vehicle Services received the notification of the airbag deployment, we first attempted contact within the vehicle. we then contacted Mr. Sheen's cell phone where he was awaken from sleep. We notified of the airbags and Mr Sheen went to check on his vehicle where he noticed it was not in his garage. He then contacted the police.
Because we were able to determine the exact location of the Mercedes Benz, a Bently was also discovered that had been missing for quite some time.
It just goes to show that this service absolutely can save your life.
Once again, ON STAR is only available on General Motors Vehicles. Mercedes Benz has their own service.
Another "possessed" car just tired of sitting there...
The comments on this story are better than the actual story. Great job people!
Onstar contacted Charlie Sheen and told him it was stolen. Quit making stories up people!
Someone needs to beat the crap out of this guy like he does to EVERY woman he gets involved with. Any woman who goes out with him knows his history, so I dont feel a BIT sorry for them when they get knocked around. He is a poor excuse for a human and probably wrecked his own car and then reported it stolen.
He's an idiot: LEFT HIS KEY in the car. Otherwise, a Mercedes-Benz cannot really be stolen. I needs the unique infrared radio frequency of its key to start the engine.
The way ppl ignore the facts and jump to conclusions is more like what would be expected from Fake News readers. Guess CNN readers are capable of it, too.
i love watching 2 and half man. and i love his acting and other crew in the sitcom. what he does is his personal life and nobodies relationship is perfect. everyone got up and down . and i watch 2 and half man every day.
five million dollars it's his crazy ex that everyone feels sorry for. Women do that.
If he did dump his own car over a ravine because he had to much to drink....then good for him. Charlie Sheen is a great guy and I admire him for how he has stood up on certain political issues. So if he was smart enough to pull this off to avoid a DWi or something else, then great. F*ck to police and go Charlie.
Oh and yes it does sound fishy to me too, but who cares. No one was hurt and it was his own car...big deal. He doesnt need any more legal crap and the law sucks a*s
Maybe Mel Gibson borrowed it and in an angry anti-Semitic and drunken stupor accidentally left the gear in drive when he go out of the car to rant and rave and vomit at the edge of the cliff!
Well its a fashion for these rich people to drive and get Screwed up and than try to hide and be safe ...... Trend followed by TIGER WOODS
Mercedes doesnt have ONSTAR. Thats pattened by Chevy moron!
You people need to GET A LIFE !!! The guy has his car stolen & dumped & you wannabees use it as an excuse to dump on him! What is it that you're so jealous of?? His money? talent? fame? good looks? How about all the stunningly hot women he's had that you losers wouldn't have a chance with? Kudos to him & as for you all... you're pathetic!
Can someone say "Tiger"?
His show is funny.
Stolen? Or did he just forget where he parked it?
this is news?
Charlie Sheen is so rude and bad. I ask him for his autograph when they crew from Young Guns was filming in Santa Fe, and out of all the cast he was the only one that didn't give me the autograph. All the other stars were happy to. Lou Diamond Philips invited me and my wife at the time to come and have some wine. Thank you Lou Diamond. Too bad Charlie, what goes around comes around.
Dust the steering wheel and door handles for fingerprints.
The truth shall then be revealed.
Actually, On Star, called Charlie. They said they had his car showing the car was in a wreck and the air bags had deployed. That is when he found out his car was even missing. Also, another neighbor of Charlie's had their Bentley stolen and was wrecked near where they found Charlie's car.
Charlie Sheen is cool! I love him in Two and a Hlaf Men. I don't think he has to study the script. He's simply being himself. Sure, he has a little bit of a wild side to him overall all he seems like a good person.
Maybe his twin sons were out joyriding......
Anybody else think it was Jake?
Car Girl: On Star does not monitor Mercedes Benz vehicles. The company that located the vehicle is called Connected Vehicle Services.
this is another fallen student from the tiger woods driving academy
I think it's Rose's fault.
Check the rest of the news too. There was a bentley driven off the same area into a ravine last night also, same circumstances. This isn't Sheen hiding, this is a car crew trying some new stunts.
Stolen? Please. I would sooner believe that Sheen was hiking in the Appalachians.
To make a long story..err...comment short, I think the pd should hire an ...no wait a minute..they have guys who do that sort of thing already on the payroll..in any event, they should investigate to see if the caller has any ties to Mr. Sheen, assuming he was smart enough to think this through..
Let me see, my lil brother pulled this same stunt, took the car without permission (*it wasn't ready to be driven on the streets and he was 16) and one morning mom looked out asking where the car was. Brother said, I think its been stolen. So...the police were in on a missing vehicle search, found it in a desert ravine (arroyo) and brought it home. Honest mom, I don't know how it got there! Uh huh, try again Charlie!
Sure Charlie........................ sure!!
Will the GPS show where it had gone? Was it dumped into ravine immediately after "leaving" the house?
I work for the company that monitors Mercedes Benz vehicles. We receive a signal that the airbags have deployed and we attempt to contact the person inside the vehicle. If we are unsuccessful, we attempt to call the cell number. That is when Mr. Sheen would have received the call of his vehicle being in an accident.
It was that free-loader Allen who crashed it......
If he was driving, he would be dead.....or at least unrecognizable....not a scratch on him....
Maybe the cars name is "Christine"!
The story indicated that "a caller" reported a car over the hill at 4:30 am. They didn't say it was Charlie that made the call. Perhaps Charlie was asleep or elsewhwere occupied.
It's his lie , let him tell it!
150k cars phone home when their stolen. Not shady.
C'mon gang....we all know Jake did it. He's been practicing his driving and begging Charlie to use his Mercedes for almost a full season. :)
I think this is all related to his joining the 911 Truth Movement.
Sounds to me like another tiger woods incedent where the wife was probably chasing him with a club. I guess Sheen jumped out just on time. I wonder if Mr. Sheen's wife checked his phone too?
He did it. Too much evidence points his direction. You couldn't have possibly known that the car got stolen at 0400 unless you were the one that did it. But its all about reputation with the public, humiliating one's self will make them lose money. So, in turn, lets blame it on a imaginary thief so that we keep rep, and maybe make money on the story.
Well im SAD! No one got hurt......
I'm sure Bush did it!
"a vehicle had went"??? English please! A vehicle "had gone" is understandable, but there's no way that it "had went."
Don't worry about it. He spends his money on material things and lets children die of starvation throughout the world as all celebretes do.
They give a GNAT'S amount to the poor and suffering and swallow a CAMEL'S portion as stated in Matthew 23:24 for their PRIDE which is the deadliest sin of the 7 deadliest sins which is what 99.9% of you do that reads this.
Religious people wear a Judas noose into crafted temples that God does not live in as stated in Acts 17:24 and then they lie and say God is in their heart but God is not in the heart of liars, the children of Satan.
Without a doubt, it had to be Jake or Berta. Allan's to dumb to steal it. Could be Rose though.
>>The Los Angeles Fire Department tells CNN that "a cell phone caller told CHP that a vehicle had went over the side around 4:30 a.m." <<
"Had went"? What kind of grammar is that? From a public spokesman? Sheesh.....
One report stated he found out the car was gone when Onstar called him to report a problem.
Also if you watched the news, it said 4 or 5 other expensive cars in the area had been stolen. All the cars were crashed and then abandoned. So it would seem he is not to blame for this one.
Thanks Craig. I was wondering myself whether some of the "conspiracy theorists" who suggested Sheen wrecked the car himself or made a false police report had actually taken the time to read the article before showing their ignorance and stupidity.
I never fail to be amazed at the amount of small-minded, stupid people who assume without any proof whatsoever other than some reports of Charlie Sheen's past behavior that perhaps he was responsible. I seem to remember that it came to light after Denise Richards claimed Charlie Sheen beat her that she admitted she lied about some parts of her story and that she cheated on Sheen. Similarly with respect to the reports about his current wife a few months ago she retracted her story within days of her report. But yet there are some ignoramuses here who would automatically assume the worst about Sheen without giving him the benefit of the doubt. For God's sake, let the police investigation run its course first.
There's a saying in Hollywood: There's no such thing as bad publicity.
With that thought in mind, try out this theory for size. Charlie deliberately took the car out and PUSHED it over the edge into the ravine. Then he headed home and reported it stolen, without a scratch on his person.
Say what you will, but it fits the facts.
Clearly, news sources have provided us with the following facts:
1) the car was seen by an independent observer going over the cliff circ 4AM;
2) Th Mercedes accident signalling system notified Mr. Sheen at about the same time;
3) The car was in a gated community with keys in the car;
4) Mr. Sheen was not in the vehicle–if anyone was in that vehicle they would have been dead, as shown by the TV photos;
5) Mr. Sheen notified the police at about 4:30 AM;
6) the car was found early that morning, destroyed down a steep ravine about 150 feet from the road.
Mr. Sheen, let me apologize for the horrible things others are saying here–obviously untrue as revealed by these facts– and we wish you the best in resolving your recent personal situations.
I heard on WJTC that George Bush was seen in the area. lol
well, if you would do research, you would of found out that Onstar called in an air bag deployment and called his house and woke him up, He called security to go to his garage and investigate and was told his car was missing. He was in bed and awoken by ONSTAR people....
Wake up you guys...it doesn't say Charlie Sheen woke up at 4AM is says the FD got a call at 4:30AM from someone on their cell phone...
And how do you people know what time he wakes up in the morning? I am up at 3:45AM every morning during the week to get ready for woirk...yes...actors get up that early too for work....*gasp* some people even work all night!
Stop speculating and let the police do their job. And CNN – I am dissapointed that you have to (over and over again) announce Charlie Sheen was arrested...blah,blah,blah....we already know that...it is an old story. I am not trying to justify what he did was right so I think the courts should handle this without interference from the media or it being hyped up. I beleive I read somewhere that they were both *Drinking*...seems to me that he needs more help with his addicition than anything, because in those same stories I read it says that when he's not drinking he is a totally different person.
According to another news website, the police had the following to say:
** Sheen was not believed to have been in the car because he would have been badly injured in the accident and "I don't know how he would have gotten back up the cliff," Officer Borihanh said. "It's being treated as an auto theft investigation," he said. **
According to another news website, the police had the following to say:
Charlie's Karma just keeps on giving him hit after hit after hit.
The real question is why anyone would give a rat's patoot!
Its a smoke and mirrors game easy to figure out monday go to jail. Friday before let someone crash your car.Sat explain what happened,Sunday rest, Monday no show for his trial because of piliminary excuses. Bet he Gets it put off.
Reading these comments is "almost" as funny as watching 2.5 Men. The illiteracy is quite sad though. It's amazing how many people cannot write or spell properly today.
Point 1: Ever been in a car when the airbag went off? Drunk or not, the damage to your face is incredible... I know firsthand.
Point 2: So What? Leave the guy alone. I crashed my car and never even received blog comments or any recognition for doing it.
Point 3: He's human "to err is human".
Charlie is one of , if not the funniest and most talented actors currently on TV. Two and a Half Men is the funniest sitcom going. We all have issues to deal with in life.
Best of luck to you Charlie!!
Charlie couldn't have done it, they didn't find any booze or pornstars in the vehicle....I'm just saying....
Charlie, c'mon! How many times have I told you never lend your Benz to Tiger! Geeesh.
I find it funny that he was called by an OnStar* agent but, i could be wrong, i thought only GM vehicles have on capabilities. If thats the case then i didnt know that GM started making Mercedes
Here's what I think ... Someone that is angry with and knows Charlie's habits takes the car wearing gloves. They drive it down Mulholland and then "push" it over the side. They walk away or get a ride from a friend who was following. It will be interesting to see what turns up on the security cameras. JMHO.
MLH you need to check the reading, it said he realized it in the morning but someone else called at 4 30. DUH
Kevin, Occam's razor states that the SIMPLEST answer is best, and the simplest answer is that Charlie had his car nicked. In this way we cut out all the infinite number of 'could have happened's, for example, his car was stolen by Elvis wearing a pink leotard singing, "I did it my way."
Who loves kids? Charlie Waffles !
It was Aliens or Gov conspiracy!! Alex Jones will be posting it on his website shortly.
Where was Jake?
SCRIPTED!!!! just like in the movies
Sounds, like Charlie not well liked in his own neighborhood.
this is going to be rich neighborhood kids, who got bored,
or a husband/boyfriend who tired of Charlie making moves
on his wife, or his wife people in Palm Beach sending
Charlie a message, of what's going to happen
to him, if he touches Brooke again.
"Brenda February 5th, 2010 4:13 pm ET
On the radio in LA this morning, they said that Mr. Sheen received a call from his OnStar saying that they detected his car had been in an accident and asked if he was ok. He was, apparently, in bed and went outside and saw the car was gone. Don't know if the radio was right, but that's what they said."
OnStar is a GM thing ...Right?
That's a tough one . . . Not sure how THAT car could be stolen?? The thief would have to have the key. Maybe Chuck JUST got tired of it and sent it over the edge. With his dough, he should be driving a Bugatti or Aston (or something equally as exotic).
Sorry dude – they're gonna try and nail you on this. GL
Oh forget all you guys and your speculations and stories....I'm checkin TMZ, they'll have the real story.
He knew it was stolen when OnStar called him because his airbags were deployed in the crash.
I bet Alan took his car cuz charlie stole one of his girlfriends again......tsk tsk. Shame on you Alan!!
To the people saying that model of Mercedes is impossible to steal– wake up. There is NO car that can't be stolen. Ask any cop.
And why is everybody so quick to judge Sheen so harshly? Granted, he's not exactly the poster boy for good behavior, but who are you to pass such negative critical judgement on him? I suspect most of you passing judgement have some skeletons in your closets too.
I want Charles In Charge of ME!
yeah...I beat they stole all his J.D. too.....
good coment kevin
does anyone know whats charlie s real name?
Jeez! Here I was all set to just go ahead and believe someone, a perfect stranger, yeah, happens all the time, actually stole Charlie Sheen's car from in front of his house. And then I realized it's because the headline said "Car Stolen from Charlie Sheen's House." I'm all insecure now. I thought I had mad news reading skillz but now I'm not so sure...
Keys or no keys (at the scene)....that is the question??? Hmm........
MJ & Elvis stole it and went joy riding.
Charile rules..and besides...he is super hot!!!!! He'll buy a better Mercedes in the morning.
Some of you doubt Sheen was in the car b/c he was able to simply walk away from the accident without a scratch. Well guess what, someone did walk-away from the accident. The article says no one was found in or around the vehicle...so that means the driver DID walk-away. However, there is a posiblity his car was built by Toyota and the gas pedal had a mind of it's own and took off. What I'm trying to say is there is still a posibility that Sheen is the driver that walked away from this accident.
His wife did it
I find it more likely that someone with a bone to pick with Sheen stole his car and pushed it over the side of Mulholland Drive to get even with him...
"a rude awakening" doesn't refer to waking him up from sleep but wakening him up to fact. Is he involved in his car going in the ravine? I don't know. But given his past drug abuse its a possibility.
OK CHARLIE.... now, was your car REALLY stolen, or did you perhaps THINK it was stolen because you can't remember last night???
Has anyone see the pictures? His car was upside down about 200-300 ft. down a ravine. If he did wreck it, he would be pretty badly injured. At least a limp. He didn't wreck it. He could have just shoved it over the side or something.
Couldn't have happened to a more deserving guy....
Charlie, You should be ashamed of yourself. Drinking and Driving is illegal! And next time be more crafty when covering your tracks!
I suppose the public would absolutely love to blame it all on O.J. Simpson, but the problem with that, is that he is already behind bars! Now come on Charlie, can't you afford a decent burglar alarm for your car? Who's kidding who here?
Come on people! You dont think he could walk away from a 100 thousand dollar mercedes????? I dont care how far it fell that car is designed to keep the important alive even though this time it was an ok actor. You cant steal that car unless the keys are left inside of it. Charlie is guilty and quite crafty as well.
It amazes me and saddens me at the same time to read these comments, or any story comments for that matter; and see the horrendous spelling, usage and punctuation errors. He "leaves" in a gated community? Really? He does?
My 11 year old daughter can form better sentences and spell better than some of the comment writers...and the worst part? The comment box has spell check!
Maybe some of you should stop worrying about Charlie Sheen and go buy a Dictionary and/or a Thesaurus. I'm just saying. You can even go online to http://dictionary-thesaurus.com/ and look for free.
No wonder our country is in the toilet, between everyone's obsession with celebrities and not caring about the real issues, and a lack of obsession with learning.
LOL....Charlie....it must have been time to get rid of that old Benz! Ya gotta love full coverage insurance =). So where did you find the "crackhead" to do it for you?
yeah. stolen. OK. Sure.
Tiger Woods stole the car and picked up OJ then Nick Nolte drove them off the road into the ravine where they were secretly rescued by mike tyson
OnStar in a Mercedes?
Maybe he was being chased by Elin Nordegren???
Sorry to see his car was "stolen". It seems Charley needs to grow up a bit. He's too old to be acting like a 25 year old. It may kill him one day. I hope he marries Rose at the end of Two and a Half Men. If you can hear me Charley take care of yourself I have always liked your work. You will be missed.
I guess none of you numbskulls read the story very close. It didn't say anything about what time he reported the car stolen. It jus says someone saw the car go over the edge at 4:30. Geesh, just take something and run with it aye?
New Mercedes are not easy to boost. I smell a rat.
Somethings not right here! Charlie, what did you do?
Looks like someone has been hanging out with Tiger. LOL
he would of been dead in that car or at least injured serously
LA Times reported "Sheen called police about 5:15 a.m. to report a possible burglar on the premises of his Sherman Oaks home, said Los Angeles police Officer Bruce Borihanh."
"Police and fire crews found the car badly damaged just after 4 a.m."
Poor Charlie he just has bad luck! Terrible of those on the blog who jump to conclusions!
George Bush and Dick Cheney took it for a joy ride.
lol I bet Jake did it
Have the LAPD dusted for prints yet? Probably none there except for Chuck's......
I did it he betrayed me in Wall St and sent me to Jail for 20, BTW see my new movie as I just got out of prison, greed is good
I wonder if his wife had anything to do with the car getting stolen, perhaps to teach him a lesson?
Jonas says: "Come on! Everyone knows this trick! I have personally done it at least ten times"
Either you are a slow learner or a dork with too many cars...
Either you are a slow learner or an dork with too many cars...
sorry is he John Gault or something great like that?
who is jake???? someone text'd my kids phone and asked is this Jake ?I gotta know????
Charlie's past bad conduct, especially the mistreatment of women, does make it easy to jump to the worst assumptions.
Wreck his car and phone it in as stolen... Charlie?! ;)
I agree with Craig...and there was a Bentley found in a ravine further down the road...chances are it was vandals.
And the wierdest thing of all is that the police now say they found the rear windows broken out and a 9 iron on the rear seat!!!!
Jim G, I agree I bet his nephew Jake took it for a joy ride!
JJ you're right, his mercedes can be stolen, we've all seen "Gone in 60 Seconds" so we know this. losa.
Here in Los Angeles it is being reported that Sheen was awakened by his phone at 4 am, being notified by OnStar that his airbags had deployed and asking if he was alright. He looked for his vehicle and saw it was missing and reported it stolen. He told police that he left the vehicle in his open garage with the keys in the ignition. The police put that together with the report of the vehicle being seen driving off the cliff and found Sheen's vehicle. But this is L.A., so that could be his PR people spinning it. Although it sounds fishy, seeing the pictures of the Mercedes SUV upside down way down the ravine, I don't see how Sheen (or anyone else, for that matter) could have been in the vehicle through the plunge down the ravine, then climbed back out, without a scratch.
Poor, poor Charlie. Your cover story might have worked but for embellishing it with the On-Star twist. Unfortunately, On-Star is not available on Mercedes. One wonders why they would have been calling you.
It never ceases to amaze me how illiterate the majority of commenters are when commenting. Retarded comes to mind as the possible reason. People, READ the article, and if you can't, then get someone to READ it and explain it to you.
Some people have been known to have the car driven off a cliff for insurance reasons. Doesnt he live in a gated community?
How does this guy even keep a job acting. He is such a total jerk. I guess Daddy still has enough "stroke" to keep his bad boy employed. He has always been a drunk, a substance abuser, and a bastard to women.......watching his show validates that crap. TURN HIM OFF PEOPLE...there are plenty of people with real talent to watch.
who is sheen
My God Almighty.....More headlines that DO NOT directly affect usother rhan to DISSUADE us from HEADLINES that might.
There was an Onstar type device in the car. They called him when airbags were deployed. Duh!!!
Charlie Sheen, together with Johny Walker and Jack Daniels took the Mercedes for a spin that ended in a ravin.
too bad he wasn't in it!
Same thing happened to me. Some kids stole my car and rode it around and cached it into a bridge abutment. The thieves were unbelievable stupid to think "It's not my car so I can crash it" They did not stop to think that it would be their head smashed on the inside of the windsheild.
I'll bet the same thig happend here, a few unbelievable stupid kids
.....horrible to happen to such a fine moral gentleman! Just appauling, Charlie that is. lol
Was it hotwired, or were the keys missing? Took the keys to get in the front foor.
to whomever stated that Mercedes are impossible to steal is wrong. i've owned several high-end cars, and while they do come with pretty great anti-theft devices, NO car is impossible to steal. i've had a mercedes and a cadillac stolen in the past 7 years, both of which listed for more than $80,000. there is no reason not to believe this sedan was stolen.
Okay, people. Read the article again. It said Sheen 'got a rude awakening' this morning. It doesn't say he was awake at 4:30 a.m. You can't assume he crashed the car or that he called police in spite what you may think of his behavior. To speculate and falsely accuse him is equally inappropriate behavior. Let the police do their work and wait for the news reports. The truth will surface.
the on star person called him, when the car crashed, his airbags deployed, ergo then on star is alerted, and they called to see if he was ok, that's how he found out it was stolen, just sayin....
too bad the thief wasn't under it
I just returned from the scene. The FD said it looks like a Bentley and it was "ghost ridden" over the cliff. The "ravine" is very deep. The car is upright but anyone who had gone over with the car could not have avoided injuries. It's anyone's guess how it got there and why.
For all of you yammering about how its "impossible" to steal a new Mercedes- get a clue or at least learn how to use google.
You can buy a device to hack/reprogram the ignition for less then $100. From the documentation it looks like it takes all of around 60-180 seconds to break the security algorithm and then the car will start right up.
The site I found (a chinese company) said it was for "locksmiths only" but they don't ask for any verification.
have another one on me chuck...
MINOR actor? Don't think so, he not only has the funniest show on TV, he acts pretty much in real life too. I love Charlie, I just wish he would quit getting married, save himself much grief.
And – Ill bet NO prints other than Chucks were found!
@Lynn. He knew it was missing because the emergency response service built into the vehicle notified him that the air bag in the vehicle deployed. They probably called to make sure everything was ok when no one in the vehicle responded.
All the comments about being shady and bad publicity are so ridiculous. OnStar contacted him when the air bags deployed.
Come on! Everyone knows this trick! I have personally done it at least ten times.
– Too much to drink
– Wipeout the car
– Walk home five to ten miles to sober up
– Call the cops to report it "stolen"
It's much more likely he crashed it himself, probably drunk or on drugs, then claimed it was "stolen".
Glad no one is hurt. And Sharon M., CNN doesn't have to cover Haiti every second of every day... Very tragic yes, but the world is still moving and there will always be "Entertainment News"
I have seen drunks walk away from the worst of crashes without a single scar, scratch, bruise or a broken bone. Mr. Sheen is a drunk and an abusive husband. His TV show is good, funny and great to see. But, I have decided to stop watching as of now. Sorry Charlie!!!
It doesn't say he reported it stolen at 4:30 am, it just says in the morning. It could have been when he woke up.
It's a lousy thing to be the victim of a crime. But, when the media thinks something like this is news-worthy, does that mean it's a slow news day?
Really. I'd rather hear updates about what's going on in Haiti. Seems like CNN has been quick to forget that the aftermath of a catastrophic disaster, recovery doesn't happen in 2 weeks.
Looks like Jake and Alan went for a rip....
The best part of the article is that it somehow prompts plenty of individuals, who have virtually no reading comprehension, to pass judgment on what transpired.
Where, in the story, does it say Charlie KNEW it was missing at 4am? If it was stolen (and ANYTHING can be stolen!) while asleep, it would make sense that he called it in stolen, as it says, when he awoke. Try following the facts of the story.
I don't know about all of you, but, if on star called me in the middle of the night, i checked, found my car gone, I would call and report it stolen. He was talked to by the police. He had no injuries and was obviously just waking up. Even the worse among people can have bad things happen, did anyone of you read about the Dead Lottery Winner? I love Charlie Sheen, he brings such joy to my husband and I every night for a hour of reruns. Love Alan, so funny, love Berta, and love Jake. Funny show, and he by far is not a nobody star! Highest paid tv star! I personally do not believe he had anything to do with the car. Jo
in some other resources, it was determined that onstar called him at home at 4 am reporting to him that his airbags had been deployed. He then went and found his car missing. give the guy a break – or a prius!
charlie was not in the car. he left the garage door open with the keys in the car and someone took it. on-star called him to say his airbags had deployed, so he checked the garage and the car was gone. he then called the police, etc.
I thought the car key for a Mercedes had a microchip in it and the car absolutely will not start unless the microchip sends the proper signal. Maybe Charlie left the keys in the car? ...and left his garage wide open ...and left the alarm system turned off?
It amazes me that the public always wants to see the bad in everything. Maybe that has something to do with the fact that the news only reports what is BAD about our world. Charlie Sheen has one of the best written, funniest shows currently on TV. He has had numerous personal problems over the years, but who hasn't. Good Luck Charlie, and keep fighting the good fight!
I saw a picture of the car. Trust me, if he was in, he would have been hurt and they would have been able to tell.
Maybe it was Tiger AND Jake.
is the the benz for the Hanes commercials? I thought he backed it into something in that commercial.
You have to call and have a new key made, or have it towed, if you lock yourself out, or lose your key. I would never drive a car or truck like that. Pain in the butt. Definate DWI.
I blame it on his underwear – the were too tight.......
I'm sure On-Star did notify him of the crash.......while he was sitting in the front seat.
Police report says the keys were in the car. Sheen lives in gated community where people often leave their garages open and keys in the car.
Ok. People.. He got a call from Onstar* telling him his car had just been in an accident. asking if he was o.k.. then he realized the car wasn't at his house and called the cops. told them it had been stolen. then cause of the Onstar* signal the Fire department found it. down the clift. That is the story so far... ofcourse they still got to see and check all the camaras from the Gated Community were he leaves and see the video of what "really happen" for now that is his story. If it was him how did he get out of the clift in the dark of the nite?. and raining.? Yes it sounds very suspicious, but also if you leave in a Gated community. and you think it's very safe. maybe people leave their cars open overnite. I have left my car open some nites and I don't have a nice car or a nice house. but an ok car and an ok house. and have never gotten my car open or stolen. He probably left it open, and what if it really happen the way he told the cops? but for all the things he is done before .. now we don't believe anything he says....
Poor Charlie – all the wannabe script writers crawl out and are sure they have the story right. They likely believed his wife's 'attack' story, too (which sounded suspicious to me). I blame the about-to-be-ex TV fiance)
He likely left the keys in it, as I'm not sure a typical thief could hot wire one! MB= most stolen? Likely most towed!
I'm So Bored and Tired of him!! Get a Clue People, this guy is a LOSER!!
HE is a major star. With soem cool movies like Wall Street and Platton to talk about it. The Esteves family is very talented White Latin family.
Yep ~ I'm witha previous post observation ~ Betcha it was Jake ~ !!! Charlie is the bad boy us girls love ~ !!! ~ Can't help but like the guy ~ Just has issues he needs to work on ~ I wish Charlie & his wife the best of luch & happiness ~ !!!
Charlie Sheen seems to me to be quite upfront about his short comings but it is indeed possible that he cased the car to go down in the hillside. I too am glad no one got hurt. I wonder how many of his problems come from growing up in an actor's house?
Was Kato Kaelin driving the car?
CNN should ask Rose what happened. I bet you she was watching and saw who took the car!
Poor Chawee! It was probably another hot broad scamming Allen. ...has anyone checked to make sure that he's not tied to a bed somewhere?
Sounds like he got drunk, crashed his car and went home and reported it stolen in the interest of preventing more bad publicity. These new mercedes and whatnot vehicles aren't easy to steal...by any means.
But we only see what the news tells us, the rest is "speculation"...
And yes to Scott, the article does state the actor reported it stolen...read the article again my friend.
I wouldn't be so quick to call him a minor actor. He is the highest paid actor on television.
Impossible. I am going to assume it was a newer mercadies (2003+) That car is IMPOSSIBLE to steal using conventional meathods.
Charlie...be safe. No comment, no comment, no comment.
He knew the car was stolen because OnStar called and told him his air bags had deployed. He sent someone from his staff to check out the car and it was gone. Sure he has had his share of trouble but innocent until proven guilty.
Um, even IF Sheen himself reported it missing at 4:30 AM, that would not be suspicious. The man IS on TV and does have early studio calls to get to.
I doubt he was in the car and crashed it. I know the Mulholland Drive area and a person in a car going into any of those ravines would be hurt badly (if not dead).
He called in his stolen car at 4:00 AM.
The On-Star called at 4:30 AM.
Mercedes is one of the most stolen cars...
Seems like he'd need a transporter to get from home to the ravine in that short period of time.
Bet you it was teenagers.
Just read on the KTLA web site that Charlie was woken by Mercedes' version of OnStar shortly after 4AM that his car had been in a crash and air bags deployed. He had left his car in an open garage with the keys in it. Thought it was safe that way in his gated community. So no jumping to conclusions guys. He might be stupid leaving his keys in the car, but it clear he was home at the time of the accident.
I would think this is a high end Mercedes, very difficult to steal and not worth much in parts. Any thief good enough to bypass an alarm on one of these doesn't drive it off the road. Perhaps the keys were left in it and kids took it for a joy ride but this story is suspicious to be sure.
It was Berta out on the town with Jake
His Hanes underwear cusshion him during the crash
Did anyone really read the article? It says "a cell phone caller told CHP that a vehicle had went over the side around 4:30 a.m."
Ever hear of Occam's razor.
The most logical conclusion is usually the right answer.
Sorry Charlie! At least you had yor seat belt on.
Can't we all just get along? I'm glad Charlie is safe and no one is hurt. Let's let time tell the tale and end the speculation.
"That's my story and I'm sticking to it." Love it.
Charlie, never lose site of your wonderful talent – no matter what happens. Go on.........
On the radio in LA this morning, they said that Mr. Sheen received a call from his OnStar saying that they detected his car had been in an accident and asked if he was ok. He was, apparently, in bed and went outside and saw the car was gone. Don't know if the radio was right, but that's what they said.
A minor actor who is a celeb because he can't deal with his relationships loses a car for whatever reason, and CNN thinks its newsworthy.
Welcome to CNN/FOX world.
Ladies and Gentleman ! It's media circus time ! Next we'll hear Al was driving after he ditched the white Bronco. You'll all one big joke.
I agree with Jim. Jake did it!
The article said SOMEONE reported a car going over the cliff. It didn't say HE reported it. You people are so judgmental
maybe they need to start using some of his personal life drama to incorporate into his show – would not surprise anyone if a intrim gal might have done it when she found out he was getting back with his wife. Sure seems like Charlie likes the drama queens
Let's not judge until they finish the investigation. Just saying.....
Nowhere in this article does it say he knew his car was missing @ 4am. There appears to have been 2 separate reports. One to the LAPD and one to the CHP. It could have been a couple hours or so before the 2 got their info together. One would think there would be some physical evidence. I heard on a local site the car was upside down in that ravine.
it went over the cliff at 4......could have been stolen earlier in the night.....learn to read people
Denise Richards got mad and then pushed the car down into the ravine.
Denise Richards got mad and must have pushed it down the ravine!
Lynn: He didnt call it in at 430...there was a motorist who saw the vehicle go off the road at 430 that called it in....he reported it stolen this morning when he woke up...
Atleast thats what im getting from the story
I doubt that Charlie was driving, if he had been driving and the car ended up in a ravine, he probably would have gone over with the car and been injured. With it being in the ravine and no one around it, it probably was a stolen car that was dumped in the ravine when they were done with it. I didn't read that Charlie reported the car stolen at 4 AM as Lynn stated but he wouldn't report the car stolen and then dump it in a ravine 30 minutes later. If he did report it stolen at 4 AM it is possible he heard a noise or had to pee and noticed it gone. Charlie hasn't led a perfect life by any means but it is wrong to blame him for something just because of his checked past.
Not sure that he was involved... how did he get home unhurt within minutes? This was not a minor crash – the vehicle was 100 feet down in a ravine... the police were knocking on his door then he reported the vehicle stolen when they realized it was missing and the police provided the license plate (and he was fine – no signs of injuries)... read the facts... just saying
Everyone knows he did it. He was mad he found out he will in fact be charged with a felony... he probably went out and got wasted, crashed his car, said oh crap, left the scene, called the police to tell them his car was stolen when he got home. He is such a tool. I hope he goes to the slammer.
What's Tiger doing driving Charlie's car?
Has anybody thought of questioning Rose...we all know how crazy she can be. ;o)
Lynn...READ will you! Article says someone called the cops and reported that they saw car go into the ravine at 4:30!!!! duh!!
I'll bet Michael Jordan borrowed it.
That's his story and he's stickin' to it..........
The article doesn't say Sheen knew the car was missing at 4:00AM. There is nothing in the article that says the person who called the fire department to report the car "had [gone] over the side," was Sheen. Nor is there anything in the article that indicates if Sheen reported the car stolen to the police before or after the accident was reported to the fire department.
Oh give me a break, Charles!
Glad to hear he's ok, but we know he knows what really happened. The incident sounds suspect.
Hmmmm...does sound fishy...though plunging that far, running home unscathed and calling the car in stolen might be a stretch
i loe this ariticle soooooo much! no way
I think it was the butler....
I wonder if Charlie got a ridfe back to the house or he had to walk?
"How did he know his car was missing at 4:00AM
The article never stated that he was the one who called in the accident. It was someone unnamed.
Having said that, I wouldn't be too shocked if he was out drunk driving and did it himself.
I smell fish... I think Charlie had to much fun last night and did not want to deal with another public episode...
Just so everyone knows......his Mercedes is impossible to steal, unless it gets towed away. And theives that are crafty enough to tow a high-end vehicle like this.....don't dump them down the side of a cliff.
A 4am Friday night crash screams one thing.......DWI baby!
yeah...right...stolen.......where there's smoke (over and over again) .there's fire..
something smells fishy...tsk tsk charlie
I'll bet Jake had something to do with it.
I doubt his car was "stolen." It seems more likely Charlie crashed it himself but doesn't want anymore bad publicity!
How did he know his car was missing at 4:00AM
Anyone else wondering if HE was driving and didn't want to get in more trouble so he called it in stolen???
glad to hear no one was hurt....
