ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, says she’ll fight assault and cocaine possession accusations with the goal of having the case dropped once the facts come to light.
Through a Los Angeles-based spokesman, Mueller says she is home in Los Angeles spending quiet time with her children. Longtime attorney Yale Galanter is in Aspen investigating the case and is defending Mueller.
Officers arrested Mueller Dec. 3 at a nightclub after a woman reported being assaulted by Mueller. Authorities released Mueller after she posted $11,000 bond. She is due back in court Dec. 19.
Sheen and Mueller divorced earlier this year, citing Christmas Day 2009 as the day of their breakup. Charlie Sheen was arrested in Aspen that day on suspicion of assaulting Mueller. He completed his probation in November 2010.
